Wipro, a leading global Information Technology, Consulting and Business Process Services company and Red Hat, Inc (RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, has announced the global expansion of their alliance to accelerate the deployment of open hybrid cloud solutions. As part of the expanded collaboration, Red Hat and Wipro will work together to develop and deliver enterprise-grade cloud solutions to the market, and will also jointly deliver next-generation DevOps solutions for continuous integration and testing.
Wipro's relationship with Red Hat dates back to 2006 when they became a Red Hat Ready Business Partner focusing on customer adoption and implementation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In 2010, Wipro and Red Hat announced further collaboration, making Wipro a Red Hat Premier Partner. As part of this most recent alliance expansion, Wipro becomes a Premier, Global Systems Integrator for Red Hat. With the expansion, Wipro's open source infrastructure solution stack now includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Red Hat Satellite, Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and OpenShift.
Additionally, to support global adoption of OpenStack and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Red Hat and Wipro are collaborating to bring solutions for private, public and hybrid clouds to their existing enterprise and telecom customers after piloting separately; they are now combining their efforts and knowledge around configuration, deployment, and management of OpenStack private clouds. As part of the solutions collaboration, Wipro has launched a demo-ready Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform environment in the Center of Excellence (CoE) at its Bangalore campus, enabling the companies to showcase their cloud solutions in a more robust, agile and varied manner.
