Fresh from a two-hour Network Field Day session at Juniper on its OpenContrail transition to the Linux Foundation, Greg and Drew do a hot take on what we saw and what it means.
We also quickly review Juniper’s ambitions for its commercial Contrail product.
- Moving OpenContrail to be fully open source is harder than it looks
- The move is customer driven (as we hinted previously)
- OpenContrail will diverge from Contrail
- Contrail wants to bridge your private and public clouds, with support for AWS, Google, etc.
- Juniper is building a network platform and moving past products
- Emphasizing security because you can control the network correctly
