3 Benefits of the Junos Architecture
Juniper Networks provides end-to-end network and security solutions that aim to provide a holistic approach to network architecture, in comparison to the traditional model made up of varying solutions all running unique operating systems. Built on the foundation of a single operating system, concurrent software releases, and modular software architecture, Juniper Networks has positioned its cohesive network architecture design to remove configuration challenges and incompatibility issues and help streamline network configuration and maintenance.
Unlike the traditional network architecture, Juniper Networks offers a single operating system known as Junos. By design, all of their network components only run on the proprietary Junos Operating system removing the inherent challenge of configuring network devices that are built on varying operating system architectures.
Juniper Networks also implements a concurrent software release strategy. Each new iteration of the Junos operating system includes working systems from previous versions such that there are zero critical regression errors.
Lastly, Juniper Networks offers modular software architecture. This design consideration allows for each unique component to run on its own protected memory space. This feature paired with independent restarts allows for debugging single issues on one module node of the network rather than pulling down sections of the environment when debugging critical issues.
