Juniper Networks, and Vmware has announced a joint Asia Pacific (APAC) strategy aimed at propelling the adoption of private cloud solutions by enterprises across Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
The announcement builds on last year’s expansion of the two companies’ global technology partnership to deliver joint marketing and sales activities and interoperable products to support simple integration of the VMware NSX network virtualisation platform with Juniper Networks MetaFabric architecture for virtualised data center networking in APAC.
“Together with Juniper Networks, we have a strong focus on addressing data center complexity by leveraging the power of network virtualisation to radically simplify IT, while delivering services at the speed of today’s business,” Sanjay Mirchandani, Senior Vice President & General Manager – Asia Pacific and Japan, VMware.
The global market for private cloud services is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 22% over the period 2013-2018 according to TechNavio. Yet the implementation and management of virtual infrastructures, together with network latency, are among the leading pain-points cited by CIOs across the APAC region.
The tie-up between the two firms represents a shared commitment to delivering simplified, flexible solutions that enable customers to more easily realize the benefits of network virtualisation and SDN as their business needs evolve.
