Junos OS is Juniper's flagship network operating system built on a single, modular code base that powers the majority of Juniper's current portfolio of routers, switches, and security appliances. The latest releases of Junos OS have incorporated many of the flow-based security features formerly available only with Juniper's NetScreen OS so that Junos now delivers both high performance and advanced security. Some of Juniper's platforms such as the Juniper SSG Series of firewall/VPN routers still ship with ScreenOS as the default operating system and Junos available as an option, but Juniper's clear strategy is to standardize on Junos OS across all product lines.
Among the advantages of standardizing on a single network operating system architecture with a single-source code base is that it is easier for network managers to learn about, administer, monitor, troubleshoot, and upgrade appliances while making it simpler to design and implement cohesive enterprise-wide strategies for security, availability, and business continuity. The modular design of Junos OS can significantly improve network uptime by allowing new services to be added without bringing devices offline. The modular approach to operating system design also protects IT investments by making it possible to add services and features when they are needed without requiring network hardware to be replaced.
For over a decade Juniper has maintained a consistent software release schedule of four major releases of Junos per year covering all Junos-supported products and built on prior code. This simplifies administrative planning, reduces the technical risk and management hassle of the update process, and avoids the confusion and network instability that can result when network appliances are running a chaotic mix of upgrades, updates, revisions, or temporary patches no longer supported by the equipment vendor.
