After merger by Juniper, cloud optimization use AppFormix adds support for VMware


Last December, Juniper acquired a cloud operations government and optimization startup AppFormix and pronounced that it designed to confederate it with a possess Contrail product line. That formation is relocating swiftly, though underneath a protection of Juniper, it’s also adding new facilities to a height that are meant to improved support Juniper’s customers. The initial of these is an formation with VMware’s vSphere virtualization platform, that a association announced today.

In a initial incarnation, AppFormix focused strongly on private clouds regulating OpenStack and Kubernetes, as good a largest open clouds from Amazon, Google and Microsoft. “But many enterprises are regulating VMware,” AppFromix founder Sumeet Singh told me. “That was always a opening in a solution.” So after a merger by Juniper, a initial set of new resources a group got went into adding support for VMware into a company’s platform.

The thought behind AppFormix is to give enterprises not usually improved insights into a applications they are regulating — even if they camber opposite clouds — though also to concede them to radically put on autopilot their cloud and a software-defined networks that tie their machines together. Juniper likes to call this a “self-driving network,” that is, a networking setup that is intelligent adequate to guard itself and, if things go wrong, automatically scold issues and urge itself from probable intruders.

With a combined support for VMware, enterprises can now use a singular collection to guard and optimize their hybrid cloud setups opposite platforms.

Juniper, that depends among a clients a vast series of vast telecom operators that are now looking during modernizing their networks, acquired AppFormix to get a head-start in this space. Many of these telcos, as Singh told me, are now regulating OpenStack in prolongation (and indeed, a telco attention was among a initial and many eager devotee of a OpenStack project), and some are now starting to examination with Kubernetes for handling program containers (either on unclothed steel or regulating OpenStack, too).

“At AppFormix, we got a series of unequivocally vast customers,” Singh said. “But partial of a reason we motionless to join hands with Contrail and Juniper is that it’s in Juniper’s DNA to have these tighten relations with all of these vast telcos that are widespread all over a world. With Juniper, we’ve been means to attract many of these telcos as good — not only in America though also in Asia and South America.”
