Wipro selects Nexenta Open Software-Defined Storage platform for its hybrid cloud

Nexenta has announced at VMworld 2015 US that Wipro Ltd., a global information technology, consulting and business process services company, has selected NexentaStor to create a storage infrastructure for Wipro’s virtual desktop requirements based on VMware Horizon 6.
Wipro will deploy NexentaStor, Nexenta’s flagship OpenSDS platform, on x86 hardware in its facility in Bangalore, India. Subsequent to successful internal deployment of VDI infrastructure, Wipro will also 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, Wipro Limited. He added, “We are excited to work with Nexenta for our internal storage requirements and also offer the same solution to our customers."
“The combination of VMware Horizon 6 and NexentaStor solutions enables streamlined deployments of virtual desktops and applications,” said Shankar Iyer, vice president, products, end-user computing, VMware. “Together, the two solutions offer customers the ability to realise enhanced value and improved return on investment.”
"Skyrocketing storage costs and vendor-specific legacy hardware lock-in via long-term punitive contracts are paralysing organisations across the globe, but it doesn't have to be that way," said Tarkan Maner, chairman and CEO, Nexenta. "At Nexenta, we combine cost-optimisation, performance, and scalability to deliver a software-defined storage solution that provides economic viability, flexibility, and open source-driven customisation for Wipro and, more importantly for its customers."
