Canonical and Juniper Partner for Carrier Grade OpenStack

The new platform is an extension of an existing partnership between Juniper Networks and Canonical.

"Juniper has been selling a product called Contrail Cloud that is powered by Ubuntu from base server operating system point of view," Ankur Singla, corporate vice president and general manager, cloud software at Juniper Networks, told Enterprise Networking Planet. "With this announcement, customers will benefit from OpenStack, Linux, and networking support coming jointly from Canonical and Juniper."

Singla was a founder at Contrail Systems, which was acquired by Juniper for $176 million in December of 2012. Juniper has since expanded on the technology and has made it available as open-source.
