Red Hat and Wipro Extend Partnership, Collaborate to Advance Enterprise OpenStack Implementations, Deliver DevOps Solutions with OpenShift
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.
Wipro’s Open Source Practice will design a joint go-to-market and cloud strategy for their clients. Wipro will also receive technical training and accreditation for open source through the Red Hat Online Partner Enablement (OPEN) program in order to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat CloudForms (Red Hat’s hybrid cloud management offering) and OpenShift (Red Hat’s award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering) in its Open Source Center of Excellence. This will qualify Wipro associates who successfully complete the program as accredited sales specialists, sales engineer specialists and services delivery specialists for both IaaS and PaaS.
Additionally, Red Hat intends to work with Wipro to expand the Wipro portfolio to include service virtualization, release automation/continuous delivery and continuous validation. These OpenShift integrated solutions will be designed to help customers to optimize their application development and delivery processes. While the DevOps solutions utilizing OpenShift can be used by customers as a standalone solution, the DevOps orchestrator, to be built by Wipro, will also integrated with the IaaS layer. This will enable automation and application portability ranging from on-premise, private cloud datacenters to the public cloud.
Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, OpenStack, Red Hat
“The industry has recognized the potential of OpenStack to transform the cloud for enterprises and telecommunications service providers alike by providing an open alternative. Customers and partners around the globe are excited by its potential and are actively evaluating and planning deployments. We're excited about working with Wipro to expand OpenStack’s reach, and helping to meet this growing interest through joint solutions built around Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and by combining our mutual OpenStack and cloud know-how.”

“DevOps, and a new culture of collaboration between Development and Operations, is key for modern IT organizations. It goes beyond the culture change though, and requires the right set of tools that enable agility. The container-based approach driven by OpenShift makes both development and deployment of applications easier, helping to increase agility and create a true DevOps environment. By collaborating with Wipro, we’re aiming to help even more enterprise customers realize the many benefits DevOps can offer.”
