Day One: Building Containers with Kubernetes and Contrail

Learn Kubernetes fundamentals and understand its integration with Juniper Contrail®.

This Day One book details the long list of Juniper Contrail features that can enrich Kubernetes implementations. Starting with the basic concepts of containers and moving through virtual networks and Contrail architecture, the authors review the basic foundation and key components of Kubernetes, including several different Kubernetes features without Contrail integration. But the core of the book is devoted to detailed labs and use cases of Contrail and Kubernetes together. Contrail can build and manage virtual networks that integrate containers, VMs, and bare metal servers of all types, so the authors focus on how to integrate a popular pair: Kubernetes and Contrail.

“SDN and Kubernetes are two of the hottest technologies and this Day One book covers the concepts of Kubernetes as well as the native networking model inside the Kubernetes, and then demonstrates how Contrail enhances the capability of network functions as well as security in Kubernetes. Recommended.” - Lin Zhang, CTO, CStack Technologies

“A must-read for anyone exploring how to integrate Contrail’s virtual networking into Kubernetes containerized platform. You will find answers for common questions and practices of Kubernetes from Contrail’s perspective, including, but not limited to, container/kubernetes basics, packet flow, and much more.” – Kevin Yang, Staff Engineer, SDDCaaS, VMware

“Great book for those who want to understand how Contrail can be integrated into Kubernetes as a container network provider. Topics range from basic concepts to advance features and implementation details with lots of examples.” - Yan Chen, Network Engineer, Google
