Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced that Capital Online, a leading global data centre and cloud service provider in China, selected Juniper Networks to build an expanded network infrastructure to support its ever-growing cloud business while simplifying network operations management through automation.
China’s cloud computing industry has experienced robust growth in recent years and is expected to reach 367.05 billion yuan by 20231. As one of the few service providers that offer both Internet Data Center (IDC) and cloud computing services in China, Capital Online serves nearly 40% of the top 100 internet companies nationwide, including organizations across various booming industries such as gaming, e-commerce, education and big data.
As one of the leading cloud computing service providers in China, Capital Online plays an integral role as a key enabler in further driving the overall growth of China’s digital economy. Given this digital explosion, Capital Online is focused on achieving cloud network convergence through Juniper’s experience-first approach to networking solutions, and is on track to support the expansion of its cloud business globally while delivering a superior end-user experience.
