Juniper Networks has announced that tcp cloud, a provider of cloud computing in the Czech Republic, has deployed Juniper Networks Contrail controller for software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) to improve automation and orchestration in its physical and virtual infrastructures. With Juniper Networks Contrail, tcp cloud can now build high-density private cloud solutions for its customers in one week versus six weeks, greatly accelerating the value tcp cloud can deliver for its customers.
tcp cloud is committed to offering the best solutions on the market for virtual private clouds and was in need of a simple, open and agile network to remain a leading provider in the industry. The company was also looking for an end-to-end cloud infrastructure solution that would quickly scale to meet changing customer needs and also continue to be compatible with future tcp cloud expansions.
The deployment of Juniper Networks Contrail exceeded expectations during the proof of concept (PoC) trial. The implementation was done in conjunction with the company’s existing use of Juniper Networks MetaFabric architecture, a reference architecture for next generation data centers that simplifies and accelerates deployment and delivery of applications within and across multiple data center locations. With Contrail, tcp cloud experienced a significant boost in network performance by increasing bandwidth from 4 Gigabits to 15 Gigabits, and added the ability to quickly customize and change the architecture design as necessary.
Additionally, Juniper’s use of open standards and open protocols enabled tcp cloud to build a reliable and fully automated open cloud solution in the existing multivendor environment, which is critical to meet the company’s customer demands.
