Contrail delivers intelligent automation, application security, and always-on reliability for cloud and NFV.
Enterprise IT is under increasing pressure to become agile and accelerate value to the business by adopting hybrid cloud architectures and delivering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Container as a Service (CaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to their stakeholder lines of business.
Service providers are also challenged to rapidly monetize new and differentiated services to generate revenue while reducing CapEx and OpEx. For many traditional network service providers as well as new cloud service providers, expanding their portfolio to meet the needs of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and XaaS (i.e., IT as a Service, Software as a Service, etc.) is seen as the path to increasing monetization and differentiation. Enterprises and service providers expect to seamlessly migrate their existing physical infrastructure—incorporating millions of dollars of equipment and years of operational experience—to the cloud era without having to “rip-and-replace.”
Juniper Networks® Contrail Networking addresses these challenges with a pure software defined approach that spans the boundaries and use cases of most physical infrastructure, orchestration systems, DevOps tooling, virtualization runtimes, and operating systems. It unifies policy for network automation across those variables with seamless integrations for systems such as: Kubernetes, OpenShift, Mesos, OpenStack, VMware, a variety of popular DevOps tools like Ansible, and a variety of Linux operating systems with or without virtualization like KVM and Docker containers.
Contrail Networking reduces the friction of migrating to cloud by providing a virtual networking overlay layer that delivers virtual routing, bridging, and networking services (IPAM, NAT, security, load balancing, VPNs, etc.) over any existing physical or cloud IP network. It also provides multitenant structure and API compatibility with multitenant public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS) virtual private clouds (VPCs) for truly unifying policy semantics for hybrid cloud environments
