Atos wins Juniper Networks Elevate Award in the Data Center of the Future category
Paris, France – December 19, 2023
Atos today announces being the winner in the Data Center of the Future category of the Juniper Networks 2023 Elevate Awards, for its ability to leverage Juniper® Apstra® for fast, dynamic data center deployment, operations and management across 21 data centers to date.
With Apstra®, Intent-Based Software that automates and validates the design, deployment and operation of all data center switches and routers, Atos is able to design a reference architecture across its multivendor environment to reduce the complexity of creating, managing and enforcing network policies. Apstra® reduces the manual labor associated with traditional configuration management as well as expenses and risk related to non-standard builds.
Atos was looking for a multi-vendor platform to help better manage its fast-growing EVPN1 network fabrics, orchestrate its infrastructure from edge to core to cloud and reduce configuration drifts. Apstra® with its baked-in lifecycle management, troubleshooting tools and rich telemetry allows rapid identification and remediation of poor performing applications as well as identifying misconfigured switches and routers. Atos’ data centers operate critical business applications 24/7 for global customers and outages are not an option.
Lee Wright, Global CTO of Hybrid Cloud and Infrastructure, Tech Foundations, Atos, said: “This award illustrates Atos’ commitment to provide customers with standard, secure and robust infrastructures so that they are confident that what they are building on is a firm foundation. Atos and Juniper Networks’ combined technologies and expertise transform data centers as enablers of a next-generation service management framework”.
Elevate Awards celebrate network innovators around the globe who use Juniper solutions to deliver exceptional experiences for their businesses, customers, and communities. Juniper announced the winners of the 2023 edition during an online event end of November.
The Juniper Networks 2023 Elevate Awards has been granted to Tech Foundations, the Atos Group business line leading in managed services, focusing on hybrid cloud infrastructure, employee experience and technology services.
