by CXOtoday News Desk    Jul 28, 2015


VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, today announced that IGATE, a global leader in integrated technology and operations-based solutions, has implemented VMware vCloud Suite to build a private cloud for its Center of Excellence (CoE) laboratory in Bangalore. VMware vCloud Suite will provide the management, automation, and orchestration required for the private cloud to help IGATE accelerate the delivery of new products and services to the market and provide an environment for customers to view proof of concept and testing.

Headquartered in Bridgewater, New Jersey, IGATE was looking at building out a private cloud to efficiently develop and deliver services to its large customer base in Europe and the United States. VMware vCloud Suite will enable IGATE to deliver complete application environments on top of its existing infrastructure, and provide automation and management capabilities to support software development lifecycles.

IGATE has also chosen to deploy VMware NSX, the network virtualization platform for the software-defined data center, to transform the economics of network and security operations. The VMware solution will help the IGATE team reduce time to access infrastructure resources from weeks to minutes, boost network security, and cut network admin costs by an estimated 35 per cent.

“In today’s complex business and technology environment, it is imperative to be able to implement services that provide the best possible outcome for our customers. We have built a private cloud, powered by VMware vCloud Suite, to deliver Infrastructure-as-a-Service. This comprises compute, storage and networking resources to efficiently develop and deliver services to our large customers based in Europe and United States,” said Vijay Kumar Srivastava, Associate Director-IMS at IGATE.

“VMware vCloud Suite has also enabled us to develop customized solutions for our customers that span multiple platforms and technologies. This will help their businesses become more agile and adaptable to changing market dynamics. VMware will play a key role in our IT strategy as we can leverage their technologies to perform customization and automation to enable hybrid cloud models,” he added.

“Organizations such as IGATE are adopting the software-defined data center as the proven model for running agile, secure, and scalable data centers,” said Arun Parameswaran, Managing Director, VMware India. “IGATE is another great example where an industry leader is able to drive real business impact by embarking on a software-defined journey that transforms how it operates and performs.”

VMware vCloud Suite incorporates a range of features and functions to help IGATE maximize the efficiency of its CoE. VMware vRealize Operations provides cloud monitoring and management capabilities, VMware vRealize Business enables cost management, and VMware vRealize Automation automates the delivery of IT services. Finally, VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager will enable IGATE to minimize disaster risk to its business, in the event of compromise.
