"We needed a…network that would enable us to offer a self-service facility to our customers. Juniper Networks was the only one who could support our particular platform."
Joep Piscaer CTO, OGD IT Services

Business Challenge

OGD needed a competitive edge in the crowded, fast-paced IT services market. It set out to speed its data center services turn-up times and offer customers a self-service portal where they could migrate their own applications and perform other tasks themselves. A multitenant IaaS setup with network virtualization running on a physical Juniper network was the solution that helped OGD achieve its goals.

Technology Solution

OGD worked closely with Juniper to implement a network aligned with the principles of the MetaFabric™ architecture, using SRX firewalls and QFX5100 switches. The Juniper equipment powers OGD’s virtualization deployment in VMware NSX.

Business Results

OGD can now deploy IT services in about a day, rather than taking up to four months, and customers can use the self-service portal to roll out applications in record time. As a result, OGD has created positive cash flow in a competitive market and expects to achieve full ROI within three years of its initial investment.

"The combination of VMware NSX and Juniper Networks has made us much more responsive to our customers’ business challenges."
