Wipro And Nexenta Collaborate To Deliver Cloud Computing Solutions To Enterprises Worldwide Via Software-Defined Storage-Enabled Virtual Desktops

Stocks in this article: WIT

Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (#softwaredefinedstorage) (SDS), today announced that Wipro Ltd. (NYSE:WIT), a global information technology, consulting and outsourcing company has selected Nexenta to create a user data storage infrastructure for tens of thousands of virtual desktop users. Tuesday, May 6th at 3:00pm PDT in room 304A, Citrix, Nexenta and Wipro will share this success story with attendees at Citrix Synergy™.

Wipro is deploying Nexenta's Software-Defined Storage solution in four of its data centers in India on x86 hardware and expects a significantly growing demand for this type of storage in the coming years. Nexenta will provide advanced SAN and NAS capabilities, hardware independence, cost effectiveness per terabyte of storage and open APIs.

The desktop virtualization infrastructure is powered by Wipro's VirtuaDesk™ - a fully integrated hardware, software and managed services solution. Wipro's VirtuaDesk solution is based on a Citrix-Microsoft software stack for desktop virtualization and includes Wipro’s proprietary hardware reference architecture and VirtuaDesk software. VirtuaDesk utilizes Citrix XenDesktop®, Citrix XenApp®, and Citrix NetScaler® Gateway to provide multiple types of virtual desktops – persistent and non-persistent Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), published desktops and applications. The end users are uniquely provided with their own optimised desktop using the core XenDesktop technologies of centralized management (FMA) and optimised user experience (Citrix HDX™) across multiple devices and operating systems.

Wipro is integrating VirtuaDesk Software with NexentaStor to automate storage services for end users – creating a layered profile for user data management in a virtual desktop environment and adding a layer of automation which will reduce administrative headaches and dependency on the storage administrator. The combination of NexentaStor and Citrix technology provides end users with greater flexibility in hardware purchases, increased user profile access speeds and a lower total cost of ownership.
