How do you break a Monolith into Microservices at Scale? This ebook shows strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices.

Juniper launched a huge open source release for network virtualization and SDN this week.  The Apache 2.0-licensed project is called "OpenContrail," and it includes an SDN controller, virtual router, analytics engine, and published northbound APIs.  It's essentially the source code library for Juniper Networks' "Contrail."  The technology comes from an SDN startup with the same name that was snatched up by Juniper in late 2012 for $176 million.

The packages are up on GitHub, and they include: 

contrail-vnc
