Juniper Networks today announced the availability of Junosphere Lab, a new virtual environment that lets service providers and enterprises design, test and operate networks.
Junosphere is a cloud offering that allows network operators to create and run networks on-demand, enabling network modeling, testing and planning at a scale that is practically impossible to achieve with physical equipment.
Using Junosphere Lab, companies can “rent” networks for as little as $50 per day, enabling them to speed modeling projects by over 30 percent and lower total cost of ownership by as much as 90 percent when compared to the alternative of building a physical lab.
Junosphere Lab extends the capabilities of the Junosphere environment first announced with Junosphere Classroom in May 2011. Today, Juniper also introduced Junosphere Connector, an optional application that enables users to connect their Junosphere networks to physical networks or lab environments.
Junosphere is an all-Juniper data center network design, built with Juniper Networks products, and optimized to meet the secure networking demands of a cloud-based environment.
Junosphere Lab is immediately available. Prricing starts at $5 dollars per virtual machine image, per day.
