Wipro Building Global Utility Computing Platform For Enterprise Clients

Wipro Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) announced today 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 center 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.

“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 centers are delivered in an as-a-service model,” stated Michael Wilczak, SVP – Strategy, Datacenter Services, Wipro Technologies. “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.”

According to Forrester Research, Inc. April 2011 report, Sizing The Cloud, the global market for cloud computing will grow from $40.7 billion in 2011 to more than $241 billion in 2020. “During the past two years, the initial exploratory interest by enterprise customers in cloud services has shifted toward more aggressive implementation plans," wrote Bill Martorelli, Forrester Research in the January 2012 report, Cloud Strategies Of The Leading Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing Providers.

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 centers. 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.
