Cyberport picks Juniper Networks Contrail for community cloud

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) said that 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 information and communications technology start-ups hands-on experience with a state-of-the-art cloud environment and serve as a gateway to public cloud services.

To grow top line revenue and control cost, Cyberport was looking to migrate from traditional data centre architecture to a more flexible and agile cloud infrastructure. They have been testing and piloting a cloud computing environment, based on the OpenStack cloud orchestration system for its community start-up companies since 2010 and was one of Juniper´s global customers to be involved in Juniper Networks Contrail solution trials.

Over 30 cloud-based applications developed by the start-up community have been tested on Cyberport´s pilot cloud platform as part of a highly-successful Contrail proof-of-concept trial.

With Contrail, Cyberport said it will be able to create new services and monetisation opportunities through increased automation and higher utilization of existing infrastructure without adding headcount to the team.
