When Juniper’s Ankur Singla gave a recent tech talk on OpenContrail, including OpenStack/CloudStack integration, he spoke to a packed house for the [San Francisco] Bay Area Network Virtualization Group. Now you can check out his presentation through a two-part OpenContrail video series on SDxCentral’s Juniper Channel.
Singla, vice president and general manager of cloud platforms and software solutions at Juniper, goes over the networking problems facing data centers and providers today and how an open source approach can help solve those problems.
Singla’s presentation takes a detailed look at Juniper’s software-defined networking (SDN) offering, OpenContrail, how it integrates with OpenStack/CloudStack, and how developers can contribute to the open community.
OpenContrail is an Apache 2.0-licensed project built using standards-based protocols and providing components for network virtualization: SDN controller, virtual router, analytics engine, and published northbound APIs. Singla provides a networking professional’s overview of the platform in the OpenContrail videos and covers:
- Network virtualization techniques and use cases
- Goals of open sourcing the OpenContrail code
- OpenContrail internal architecture and components
- OpenStack/CloudStack integration
- How to create virtual networks and virtual machines, and how to create and connect tenants through OpenContrail
