Nipa Cloud, a leading cloud services provider in Thailand, has selected Juniper Networks to strengthen its existing network infrastructure to support Nipa’s growth, and in anticipation of further growing demand for endpoint flexibility amidst Thailand’s digital transformation.
As Thailand’s first full-service OpenStack public cloud services provider powered by Tungsten Fabric, Nipa is committed to offering technologically advanced cloud solutions that match up competitively to the solutions from global providers while simultaneously creating unique value add for the localised market through greater flexibility, multiple availability zones, modularity, and local understanding as a homegrown provider.
With this ‘glocalised’ approach, Nipa’s cloud solutions have rapidly gained market share amidst stiff competition, especially as Thailand’s economy builds out a strong IT infrastructure to support sustained growth into the digital era as per the government’s ‘Thailand 4.0’ policies and its fourth industrial revolution.
This push has seen even further recent impetus, with the ongoing post-pandemic recovery spurring Thai businesses to increasingly prioritise innovation and investment toward cloud spending. Outpacing global forecasts, Thailand’s spending on cloud infrastructure is projected to grow 28.2 per cent in 2022 alone, with infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) expected to see the highest growth figures as Thai enterprises scale up infrastructure and migrate complex workloads to the cloud to better enable a remote work culture.
In light of its strong growth momentum and this increasing demand for cloud services across Thailand’s enterprises, Nipa has deployed EVPN-VXLAN solutions from Juniper Networks, including the QFX5120 Series Switches and MX10003/MX204 Series Universal Routing Platforms, to upgrade its campus and data centre networks and better differentiate its offerings.
These upgrades allow Nipa to now deploy a common set of policies and services across campuses with support for Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. In addition, Nipa is now able to better deliver enhanced throughput, scalability, capacity, performance, and security – enabling Nipa to continue the development of its ground-up cloud solutions, uniquely built for Thailand’s fast-developing enterprises and rapidly transforming digital ecosystem.
Dr. Abhisak Chulya, founder and CEO, Nipa Cloud, said: “Thailand is amid a massive digital transformation, with consumers and enterprises alike accelerating their transition to the cloud. As our nation drives toward Thailand 4.0, it is key that infrastructure providers like Nipa Cloud adapt and transform to stay ahead of the pack. Through our partnership with Juniper Networks, we can introduce new infrastructure-as-a-service capabilities with multiple locations and lower the cost of the cloud. This will offer our customers and partners access to agile, cost-effective, and secure services that will help drive sustainable growth in Thailand’s digital economy.”
Perry Sui, senior director, ASEAN & Taiwan, Juniper Networks, said: “We are delighted to partner with Nipa Cloud to support their vision toward enabling Thailand 4.0 through the digital transformation of the country’s enterprises. Nipa Cloud plays a key role in driving the nation’s technological growth and through Juniper’s experience-first networking approach, we are committed to helping them deliver world-class cloud solutions to its end customers. All of which are crucial in bringing digitally-accelerated post-pandemic recovery and in ensuring Thailand’s continued economic growth.”
