About This Solution Guide


This Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution focuses on the use of Contrail with Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB). Such an IaaS network offers data center operators a way to connect physical servers and virtual machines in a seamless fashion and bypass the limitations of VLANs by using VXLAN tunnels and an IP fabric underlay. By using an IaaS solution, data center operators can scale their cloud-enabled business, migrate physical servers to virtual machines, and manage costs all at the same time.

This guide provides an overview of the IaaS solution using Contrail and OVSDB, the solution requirements, design considerations, and how the solution was implemented by the Juniper Networks solutions team. It also provides an example of how to configure an IaaS network and verify that the solution is working as expected.
