Contrail Cloud Overview

Juniper Networks Contrail Cloud provides cloud service providers with a bundled solution to build cloud platform infrastructures. The Contrail Cloud bundle simplifies your cloud building journey by integrating multiple software components—Red Hat Openstack orchestration, Contrail Networking, Contrail Command, Red Hat Ceph Storage, and Appformix—into a bundle with pre-configured files that is collectively installed on multiple devices using a single installation procedure.

Contrail Cloud:

  • simplifies installations by bundling multiple software components into the same installation procedure.

  • simplifies purchasing procedures by removing the guesswork associated with selecting your individual orchestration and SDN networking components for your cloud network.

  • eases cloud network configuration and implementation by providing pre-configured YAML files that establish the initial networks at the server layer with minimal user intervention.

  • avoids many of the unintended consequences associated with implementing components that have not been tested in the same network.

  • provides a cloud infrastructure that is fully supported by the Juniper Networks technical support team.

The bundled Contrail Cloud package includes:

  • Red Hat OpenStack

  • Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Juniper Networks Contrail Networking

  • Juniper Networks Contrail Command

  • Juniper Networks Appformix

  • Pre-configured YAML files to simplify the initial configuration procedure, and Ansible scripts to deploy configurations made in the YAML files.

All Contrail Cloud software components are downloaded from a Juniper Satellite device. You must send an email request to to obtain the credentials to access the Juniper Satellite. See Deploying Contrail Cloud.
