This Introduction to Juniper Cloud Concepts and Contrail Networking specialization provides students with the foundational knowledge required to work with Juniper Contrail. The course summarizes cloud concepts, virtual networks, and cloud management. The specialization provides an overview of fundamental cloud concepts, Linux virtualization, and containerization. The course then explores concepts of network virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The course also introduces OpenStack, Kubernetes, and cloud-native Contrail Networking. Upon completing this specialization, students will understand virtual networks and how to configure them using Juniper’s cloud-native Contrail Networking solution.

In this course, you will learn fundamental cloud computing concepts. This course covers key benefits of cloud computing, cloud service models such as SaaS and IaaS; public, private and hybrid cloud deployment models and open-source cloud technologies. You will learn about Linux virtualization techniques, QEMU-KVM, Libvirt and popular cloud instance initialization approach cloud-init. This course covers the concepts of namespaces and how to connect them through Linux bridges and OpenvSwitch. You will also learn about containerization through Docker, Dockerfile and Docker networking.
In this course, we will explain two open-source cloud management and orchestration platforms—OpenStack and Kubernetes. You will learn about different OpenStack concepts and the process to create virtual machines in OpenStack using the Web interface and the command line. You will also learn to automate these deployments using YAML-based Heat templates. OpenStack networking constructs, such as security groups and Floating IPs, will be covered in this course as well. The course will introduce you to Kubernetes architecture, API objects such as Pods and Services, the kubectl interface and integration with a CNI plugin for networking. The course will also demonstrate how an application can be deployed using Kubernetes.
This course will introduce you to Juniper Networks Contrail Networking (CN2) , a cloud-native SDN solution for intelligent networking and security for Telco and IT cloud. You will learn about the concepts of a virtual network, underlays and overlays, as well as tunneling protocols such as VXLAN. The course will explore Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) approaches. You will learn about cloud-native Contrail Networking architecture and integration with orchestrations systems such as Kubernetes. Navigating the Contrail user interface and Contrail’s advanced networking features to create Kubernetes custom networks and multi-interface Pods will also be explored.
