A subsidiary of Kerry Logistics Network Limited, which has operations in Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia, Kerry Express is Thailand’s leading parcel delivery company today.
As e-commerce in South-East Asia is experiencing unprecedented boom – predicted to reach $102 billion and CAGR growth of 34% by 2025 – Kerry Express has been keeping up the pace to maintain its competitive edge.
This pole position – together with its ‘Kerry everywhere’ slogan – inspired the company to pursue providing the best experience and convenience for its customers, by launching a mobile order app, e-payment through LINE app/QR, and AI chatbot services.
However, working with a traditional data center architecture meant the Kerry team was tied down to a long purchasing lifecycle with an average waiting time of 3 months. The team also experienced difficulties in handling data protection efficiently.
After evaluating several solutions via a PoC, the team decided to deploy Nutanix cluster at data center and disaster recovery sites in Bangkok and migrated its core business applications and services onto Nutanix. Kerry Express also chose the Nutanix AHV hypervisor to run virtualization, saving a substantial amount in license fees.
