Wipro Technologies is set to expand 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 IaaS portfolio will be 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.
“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 percent of the servers hosted in Wipro’s data centers are delivered in an as-a-service model,” said Michael Wilczak, SVP – Strategy, Datacenter Services, Wipro Technologies.
“Now, we are expanding the service portfolio, deploying the platform throughout theUS, Europe andIndia, and marketing the solutions as discrete service offerings under the Wipro iStructure service line,” Wilczak added.
Recently, Forrester Research said the global market for cloud computing will grow from $40.7 billion in 2011 to more than $241 billion in 2020.
Wipro iStructure services are designed to meet the availability, security, management, and compliance requirements demanded by the company’s enterprise client base.
The compute, network and storage architecture are designed to ensure redundancy and minimize potential service disruptions.
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.
