Wipro taps Nexenta for storage infrastructure

Nexenta, a provider of Software-Defined Storage, announced that IT services provider Wipro has selected NexentaStor to create a storage infrastructure for Wipro’s virtual desktop requirements based on VMware Horizon 6.

The announcement was made at VMworld 2015 U.S.

As per the deal, Wipro will deploy NexentaStor, Nexenta’s OpenSDS platform, on x86 hardware in its facility in Bangalore. Subsequent to successful internal deployment of VDI Infrastructure, the Bangalore-based Wipro will deploy the Borderless business project infrastructure to 4,000 users in its Bangalore facility.

The deployment of Nexenta SDS, SSDs, NL-SAS disks as well as VMware Horizon and VMware NSX, will enable employees to work seamlessly from anywhere and get the respective desktop image, while ensuring data security.

“We needed a cost-effective storage solution that could scale with our VDI implementation. Nexenta demonstrated that we can achieve great performance metrics while being able to scale the storage capacity at an optimal cost,” said Raja Ukil, chief information officer of Wipro.
