IBM Services and Juniper Networks signed a $325 million deal that will see IBM help manage the networking giant's on-premises and cloud infrastructure and workloads.
Working with IBM will allow Juniper to "collaborate with them on innovative solutions for our cloud-first business model," said Juniper CIO Bob Worrall in a statement.
Juniper, like many large enterprises, has a mix of cloud native and legacy applications and workloads. "The Juniper program will help them design and build the right multi-cloud environment, and mange those workloads on a combination of clouds," said Bill Lambertson, director of cloud industry solutions at IBM.
Under the seven-year agreement, IBM will use its IBM Services Platform with Watson to help manage Juniper's support systems including data centers, help desks, and data and voice networks.
