Cloud services provider Nipa has chosen AI-driven networks vendor Juniper to accelerate digital transformation across Thailand's businesses.

The partnership will see Juniper supporting Nipa to reinforce its current network infrastructure as the company expands and in anticipation of growing demand for endpoint flexibility in light of Thailand's rapidly transforming digital economy.

Powered by Tungsten Fabric, Nipa is Thailand's first full-service OpenStack public cloud services provider.

The company says it is dedicated to providing technologically advanced cloud solutions that are equal to offerings by global competitors.

"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," Nipa Cloud founder and CEO Dr Abhisak Chulya says.

"Through our partnership with Juniper Networks, we can introduce new infrastructure-as-a-service capabilities with multiple locations and lower cost of 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," Chulya adds.

Nipa also says the company strives to create unique value add for the localised market through increased flexibility, multiple availability zones, modularity and local understanding as a homegrown provider.

As a result of the government's push for digital transformation with its Thailand 4.0 policy, Nipa's focus on cloud has received an increased demand from the country's post-pandemic recovery and ever-growing IT infrastructure, and Thailand's spending on cloud infrastructure is predicted to grow by 28.2% in 2022.

In response to the rapid growth and increased demand for these services from Thailand's businesses, the company has established EVPN-VXLAN solutions from Juniper Networks such as the QFX5120 Series Switches and MX10003/MX204 Series Universal Routing Platforms to upgrade its campus and data center networks and provide a wider variety of offerings.

The upgrades will enable Nipa to establish a common set of policies and services across campuses, supporting Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs.

Furthermore, the company can deliver improved throughput, scalability, capacity, performance and security.

This will allow Nipa to continue growing its ground-up cloud solutions which it says have been designed specifically for Thailand's needs.

"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," Juniper Networks ASEAN and Taiwan senior director Perry Sui says.

"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," Sui adds.
