Cyberport will deploy Juniper Networks Contrail as the virtual network solution for its Cyberport Community Cloud.
The new offering from Cyberport is designed to give ICT start-ups hands-on experience with a cloud environment and serve as a gateway to public cloud services.
Juniper Networks Contrail will enable Cyberport to offer network-as-a-service within its community cloud. The introduction of a self-service portal enables Cyberport customers to subscribe and self-provision compute, storage, network assets and enjoy bandwidth on-demand.
The company said in a statement that Juniper Networks Contrail is expected to provide Cyberport a simple way to connect physical networks with a virtual environment and provision underlying services, thus reducing the time, cost and risk for the users when configuring the network.
With Contrail, Cyberport will be able to create new services and monetization opportunities through increased automation and higher utilization of existing infrastructure without adding headcount to the team.
Cyberport will deploy a Juniper Networks MX80 3D Universal Edge Router for network bandwidth and IP provisioning. Cyberport will leverage Contrail’s open standard protocols to orchestrate on-the-fly configuration changes across its data center switching and routing infrastructure to establish virtual networks that dynamically support operations in the community cloud.
Juniper Networks’ Contrail will also enable Cyberport to support the federation of its community cloud with public cloud environments, increasing the speed of business and service innovation for its start-up customers by making the network more dynamic, flexible and automated.
Cyberport is among the first of many customers turning to Juniper Networks Contrail to help unleash the full potential of cloud computing to drive agility, fuel innovation and reduce costs, according to Aruna Ravichandran, vice president of product and solutions marketing, Juniper Networks.
