Analytics

Data correlation — the Cloud Analytics Engine gathers and correlates data gathered from multiple sources, including physical and virtual end points, providing visibility for troubleshooting, application deployment and capacity planning. End to end aggregated view — providing end to end visibility into both the network and applications, the Cloud Analytics Engine aggregates views to help IT staff quickly identify the root cause of problems. Flexible and open — the Juniper Networks Cloud Analytics Engine partner ecosystem is continuously evolving, providing support for third-party tools and other devices through plug-ins and APIs.

Application perspective — by offering visibility into how the network is performing from an application perspective, the Cloud Analytics Engine makes it easier to triage performance problems and determine whether they originated in the network or an application. Reduced costs — by helping detect, identify and isolate network faults, the Juniper Networks Cloud Analytics Engine reduces the amount of time and money spent troubleshooting and fixing network or application problems.
