Cloudscaling, Juniper Collaborating On Open Architecture Clouds

Elastic cloud company Cloudscaling is partnering with Juniper Networks, to deliver an elastic cloud infrastructure solution that combines Cloudscaling’s Open Cloud System, with Juniper’s virtual network control (VNC) technology.

The first phase of collaboration focuses on integration of Juniper’s Contrail controller technology into Cloudscaling’s Open Cloud System. The result will be an open, any-to-any network fabric, where Layer-3 network services are moved closer to cloud-enabled application workloads.   

The new software-defined networking (SDN) capabilities are implemented via OpenStack Quantum. The VPC capability will be delivered as an advanced feature module in Open Cloud System 2.5. 

General availability is slated for later this summer.
