"Agile, scale-out networking is critical to unlocking the power of cloud computing, but until now, proprietary interfaces have slowed adoption of software-defined networking. By delivering Contrail as open source, Juniper has made a quantum leap forward in the productivity and flexibility of SDN. As the number one pure-play OpenStack company, we've seen firsthand how open source gives public and private cloud operators the agility they crave. There's no substitute for full transparency in unlocking these benefits both in developer productivity and in competitive advantage."
- Boris Renski, executive vice president and co-founder of Mirantis and member of the board at the OpenStack Foundation
"Juniper Networks has a long history of supporting open source and open standards. OpenContrail reinforces that commitment. It provides developers, partners and customers with a solution that creates significant business opportunities and an open source networking framework that will accelerate adoption, foster new innovation, and create a more open and transparent approach to SDN. By providing both a fully supported commercial product, as well as a customizable open source version, we are catering to our customers' needs and encouraging innovation via an open development community."
- Ankur Singla, vice president and general manager SDN, Software Solutions Division, Juniper Networks
