Hoff: We took our SDN system and open sourced it, in order to build and extend the platform.
Some of the SDN security ideas you've presented are similar to those from VMware, such as its NSX initiative for security. Do you regard Juniper as competing with VMware in this regard?
Linn: From an overlay perspective, they're similar. But Juniper also announced a partnership with VMware in the last few months.
Hoff: VMware is the dominant player in virtualization for large enterprises, but operationally, they need the support in underlying switch and router capability. Juniper signed up to support NSX.
So what is the adoption of Contrail now?
Linn: About 30 customers are validating the technology.
