Contrail Cloud Overview
Juniper Networks Contrail Cloud is an integrated Telco cloud platform built to run high-performance NFV with always-on reliability, allowing service providers to deliver innovative services with greater agility. Contrail Cloud Release 13.0 features Red Hat OpenStack combined with Juniper Contrail Networking, thereby bridging dynamic cloud orchestration with highly scalable connectivity. Furthermore, Contrail Cloud leverages AppFormix which has a built-in automation capability powered by machine learning to run the cloud infrastructure and VNFs in the most optimal manner, and remediating any potential failures to ensure adherence to SLAs.
This guide describes a platform architecture for Contrail Cloud Release 10.0. This guide can be used as a reference for building small and medium size OpenStack clusters comprising of less than 100 computes.
For larger clusters, depending on the number of workloads that need to be supported in the cluster, the storage and compute requirements (CPU, Memory) on the servers hosting the controller components must be configured accordingly.
