Cloud computing is the new normal. As most of the companies are moving their data into the cloud, it brings forth bigger challenges as well. Juniper, an American multinational corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, California that develops and markets networking products has introduced a new Cloud-Grade Networking platform that introduces a new set of principles for the way applications and services are architected, delivered and secured. The new technology fosters the cloud agility as well as reduces the complexity in the entire process. Juniper's Cloud-Grade Networking comprises four principles: a platform-first approach, disaggregation, a Self-Driving Network, and pervasive software-defined security. The self driving network is an independent network that eliminates the complexities of running multiple services and can self-configure, monitor, manage, correct, defend, and analyze. It also introduces Junos Node Slicing service model, which can help make a better cloud platform. Junos Node slicing service model, which is a single operating system enables the operators to run multiple services or instances on the same router, each of which has a separate administrative domain. The newly introduced services are expected to bring a radical change in the way cloud based services are being carried out, reducing the operational costs and complexity it seems.
