Juniper Networks has launched JunosV Contrail, a family of products which includes the JunosV Contrail Controller, an open, standards-based controller for software-defined networks (SDN).
Built on intellectual property from Juniper’s recent acquisition of Contrail Systems, the JunosV Contrail family of products delivers a virtual network solution that integrates into existing datacentres to centralise control across different client IT architectures and multiple cloud platforms.
The solution virtualises the network to enable seamless automation and orchestration among private and public cloud environments, elastic management of IP-based network and security services, and a “Big Data for Infrastructure” offering for enhanced analytics, diagnostics and reporting.
“The JunosV Contrail Controller combines best-in-class network orchestration and automation to address the gaps customers are experiencing with existing SDN controller solutions. With Juniper Networks, customers can now have technology that seamlessly integrates into their current IT architectures, providing the agility and scalability they need to build elastic, open environments and the ability to deploy services like security seamlessly across cloud networks. This level of performance will ensure customers can move beyond the SDN experimental stage and into systems that provide the flexibility and investment protection for the long term," says Ankur Singla, vice president, SDN and Orchestration Systems, Juniper Networks.
