JUNO is an underground neutrino observatory under construction in Jiangmen, China. It uses
20kton liquid scintillator as a target, which enables it to detect supernova burst neutrinos of
large statistics for the next galactic core-collapse supernova (CCSN) and also pre-supernova
neutrinos from the nearby CCSN progenitors. All flavors of supernova burst neutrinos can be
detected by JUNO via several interaction channels, including inverse beta decay (IBD), elastic
scattering on electron and proton, etc. Among them, IBD events makes it possible to get the
directional information of CCSN even in a liquid scintillator detector. The real-time monitoring
systems for the next CCSN based on FPGA and DAQ are under development in JUNO, which
allows prompt alert and trigger-less data acquisition of CCSN events
