Wipro, 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 this borderless business project infrastructure to 4,000 users in its Bangalore data center facility. The deployment of Nexenta SDS, SSDs, NL-SAS disks as well as VMware Horizon and VMware NSX, would 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. “We are excited to work with Nexenta for our internal storage requirements and also offer the same solution to our customers.”
Nexenta currently has 6,000+ customers, 400+ partners, 33 patents, and more than 1,200 petabytes of storage under management.
“Skyrocketing storage costs and vendor-specific legacy hardware lock-in via long-term punitive contracts are paralyzing organizations across the globe, but it doesn’t have to be that way,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO, Nexenta. “At Nexenta, we combine cost-optimization, performance, and scalability to deliver a software-defined storage solution that provides economic viability, flexibility, and open source-driven customization for Wipro and, more importantly for its customers.”
