Juniper Network extends Contrail network virtualization platform to public cloud. Juniper Network Contrail Enterprise Multicloud will compete with Cisco ACI and VMware NSX. Juniper Network extends its contrail network virtualization platform to a multiple voice environment, with Cisco and VMware competing more and more businesses running applications on public and private clouds.
Juniper Contrail Enterprise Multicloud is a single software console for coordinating, managing, and monitoring network services for applications running in a cloud computing environment. The new product will not be available until early next year, competing with the cloud version of Cisco’s ACI and VMware’s NSX. The Juniper Network announces that it will provide the Linux Foundation with a code base for Opencontrail (open source version of the Software Definition Network (SDN) coverage). The company said the foundation’s network project would help to push opencontrail deeper into the cloud ecosystem. Part of the reason for Contrail Enterprise Multicloud is the work that Juniper Networks have done over the years to build a private cloud with telecoms companies. Juniper Networks now work with almost all telecom companies around the world to help them develop telecom clouds. In some cases, they have learned how to accomplish this[cloud network] problem.
