Kochi: Wipro Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) has announced that the company is expanding its Infrastructure as a Service (‘IaaS’) capabilities to create a global utility computing platform, designed to meet the specific requirements of enterprise-class clients.
The platform draws on Wipro’s global data centre infrastructure and deep expertise managing mission-critical IT systems to deliver compute, storage, recovery, network, security and other services in an automated, consumption-based model. The IaaS portfolio is being marketed as Wipro iStructure™ services, and will be the foundation for offering a broad set of infrastructure, application and business process outsourcing solutions in an ‘as-a-service’ model.
In a release, Michael Wilczak, SVP – Strategy, Data centre Services, Wipro Technologies said, “Last year we began offering multi-tenant, virtual server hosting to our existing clients as part of large, integrated infrastructure management engagements. Clients have quickly adopted the service, and today, 15% of the servers hosted in Wipro’s data centres are delivered in an as-a-service model. Now, we are expanding the service portfolio, deploying the platform throughout the US, Europe and India, and marketing the solutions as discrete service offerings under the Wipro iStructure service line.”
Wipro has a long pedigree in servicing large, global companies, and Wipro iStructure services have been designed to meet the availability, security, management, and compliance requirements demanded by the company’s enterprise client base. The compute, network and storage architecture were designed to ensure redundancy and minimize potential service disruptions, and the platform is installed in secure, high density data centres. Standardized tooling and orchestration enable the integration of IaaS services with legacy infrastructure, and the web interface provides clients’ IT administrator to provision and manage capacity for various departments, generate usage and performance reports, and charge back on a consumption basis.
Wipro Technologies has over 131,000 employees and clients across 54 countries. Wipro has a development centre in Infopark, Kochi.
