Paris based French public cloud provider Cloudwatt has deployed Juniper Network's open source OpenContrail SDN technology to improve network operation efficiency and ensure data sovereignty and security for its large-scale cloud deployment.
OpenContrail is an Apache 2.0-licensed project initiated by Juniper Networks last year to foster innovation in software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and to help drive adoption of cloud computing.
Both companies completed the integration of OpenContrail and Cloudwatt's cloud orchestration system and went into production on June 30, 2014.
According to Juniper, OpenContrail enables Cloudwatt to innovate, adopt and experiment with SDN technology to maintain full control of customization and optimization of its network infrastructure. In addition, Cloudwatt is able to greatly expedite its cloud deployment, simplify network operations, seamlessly connect virtual and physical environments as well as scale out its cloud environment.
