Juniper Networks has announced that ESDS has successfully implemented Juniper’s networking solutions, including the QFX 5100, EX 4550 and MX 104. With ESDS experiencing an increase in workloads due to a growing customer base, the organisation required a high-performance, low latency network that could help it securely deliver cloud applications without risk of delay or disruption. Having a reliable network is especially essential given that a majority of ESDS’s customers are from critical sectors, such as government and financial services industries, which demand consistent high-performance and uninterrupted access to their applications.

To address this, ESDS selected Juniper Networks to help optimise, automate and secure its cloud application delivery infrastructure. Through the deployment of Juniper’s carrier grade operating system, Junos OS, ESDS has also streamlined its operations and improved network management while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) by 20 per cent, even while experiencing traffic growth of over 50 per cent year-on-year.

“As one of the leading cloud service providers in India, we were able to create our own patented vertical auto-scaling technology on our cloud platforms, thereby enabling a scalable cloud infrastructure. With this innovation in place, we needed a network that could support our cloud technology and Juniper helped us achieve that – all while ensuring that floating virtual machines between multiple data centres were operated with the highest levels of security,” said Piyush Somani, Managing Director, ESDS Software.

Today, Juniper powers more than 90 per cent of the organisation’s network infrastructure. With ESDS planning major expansions to Bengaluru and other key cities in the near future, ESDS has selected Juniper as its networking partner to power the cloud transformation.

“ESDS is a strong player with a proven track record in the cloud and automation space, and we are proud to have been selected to power their network. Their impressive pace of growth in the past few years is a reflection of the immense potential and success for cloud-based solutions in India. Coupled with our commitment to simplifying the journey for customers toward a secure and automated multicloud, we are eager to continue our partnership with ESDS to support their expansion in building a progressive and future-ready cloud for India,” added Ramesh Narasimhan, Sales Director, India, Juniper Networks.
