Wipro partner SUSE to develop OpenStack Cloud platform


Bangalore: Wipro has announced that they have jointly developed with SUSE an OpenStack cloud solution to meet customers’ evolving needs for flexible and open infrastructure models. The solution has been built using Wipro’s leading Open Source Cloud frameworks and SUSE Cloud, SUSE’s enterprise OpenStack cloud platform which is integrated with a cloud management layer, stitching the private and public cloud layer together.

Wipro’s OpenStack Cloud Reference Architecture is a part of Wipro’s vision of Hybrid Cloud Computing. Wipro and SUSE’s joint OpenStack cloud solution has the ability to allow unified Application Programming Interfaces (API) across private and public Clouds and can be tailored for private cloud implementation as it adds elasticity and agility to the existing IT infrastructure. This next-gen Hybrid cloud solution stack supports compute-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service and network function-as-a-service.

Anuj Bhalla, VP & Global Business Head – System Integration & Maintenance Services, Wipro Ltd. stated, “We have been working with SUSE to create a cloud business continuity system in order to ensure higher availability of services, using the OpenStack cloud platform. Together, with SUSE Cloud and our industry leading Open source practice, our aim is to create a suite of flexible open source cloud solutions that will transform the customer’s business in a tangible and rapid way. Through this joint approach, we are confident of creating a pool of Hybrid Cloud trained resources and are investing in joint engineering efforts to enhance the existing OpenStack cloud solution.”

Wipro and SUSE’s joint hybrid Cloud solution also supports on-the-move auto scaling of the provisioned virtual machine and has the ability to move workloads from one cloud to another leveraging the ‘cloud burst’ technology. The solution also brings budget, spend and billing control via a self-service portal, extending its functionality to platform-as-a-service.

Michael Miller, VP of Global Alliances & Marketing, SUSE, said, “Open Source is at the forefront of cloud-based technology advancements, and SUSE and Wipro are working to create solutions that meet evolving client needs for flexible and open infrastructures. This joint SUSE Cloud solution is ideal for hybrid cloud implementation, providing flexibility and agility to existing IT infrastructures and meeting growing demand among enterprises of all types including media, retail and transportation customers.”
