ThousandEyes is working with Juniper Networks to provide visibility for network teams into the delivery of internally hosted and SaaS applications that traverse WANs and the internet.
Using Juniper's cloud CPE, the network intelligence specialist says it will provide insights into performance and application delivery across the changing hybrid WAN of service providers and enterprises.
According to ThousandEyes, hybrid cloud models, data centre consolidation, SD-WAN offerings and SaaS adoption are all “straining” the modern enterprise network.
It believes that cloud migration – often to a hybrid public/private environment – can bring new network blind spots. If left unchecked, the firm warns that these can “wreak havoc” on service delivery, application development, SLAs and the overall end-user experience.
The company goes on to claim that it provides IT and network teams with “unique” insights into modern enterprise network infrastructure, encompassing the internet and cloud as part of the normal operating environment.
It says these insights come from the constellation of network vantage points spanning the internet, within the enterprise, to the end user.
With what it describes as the “comprehensive” and open NFV solution offered by Juniper’s cloud CPE, ThousandEyes reckons it now gives customers the ability to virtually deploy managed services faster.
The vendor says its VNF on Juniper’s NFX cloud CPE can provide customers hop-by-hop performance insights into network problems from a branch office or data centre within the enterprise network, across the internet to hosted data centres or to cloud-based applications.
Mihir Maniar, VP of product management at Juniper Networks, adds that customers benefit from the open architecture of his company’s CPE devices and partner ecosystem to deploy “best of breed” solutions of choice.
He says: “The ThousandEyes solution gives customers the end-to-end visibility into their new software-centric network architecture to achieve the benefits of an agile network: new revenue streams, profitability, accelerated innovation and service delivery.”
