LEV­ER­AG­ING STRONG PART­NER­SHIP

CRN - - LET'S BUILD THE BEST -

The win­ner of Ju­niper’s Best Ser­vices Award 2013, Wipro is a leader in the DC trans­for­ma­tion so­lu­tions busi­ness both in In­dia and glob­ally.

Says Pankaj Gupta, Gen­eral Man­ager, Head Busi­ness & Al­liance, Wipro, “We share a strong re­la­tion­ship with Ju­niper whose net­work­ing tech­nol­ogy port­fo­lio com­ple­ments our global ex­pe­ri­ence in de­liv­er­ing com­plete so­lu­tions across the IT spec­trum.”

Wipro, which has ex­e­cuted sev­eral DC trans­for­ma­tion projects for large en­ter­prises around the world, be­lieves that Ju­niper’s data cen­ter (DC) ar­chi­tec­ture has a con­sid­er­able edge over its com­peti­tors be­cause it of­fers a com­bi­na­tion of switch­ing, rout­ing, se­cu­rity, soft­ware, SDN and or­ches­tra­tion all work­ing in con­junc­tion with an open tech­nol­ogy ecosys­tem to ac­cel­er­ate the de­ploy­ment and de­liv­ery of ap­pli­ca­tions.

“The key chal­lenges faced by en­ter­prises in the DC to­day are grow­ing vir­tu­al­iza­tion, real-time ap­pli­ca­tion avail­abil­ity and mo­bil­ity,” ex­plains Gupta. “The new DC net­work must ad­dress these needs by de­liv­er­ing a high-qual­ity user-ex­pe­ri­ence for real-time ap­pli­ca­tions, greater agility for de­ploy­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions, in­te­gra­tion with the cloud and eco­nom­i­cal scal­a­bil­ity. Ju­niper’s Me­taFabric ar­chi­tec­ture is a next-gen­er­a­tion DC ar­chi­tec­ture which ac­cel­er­ates the de­ploy­ment and de­liv­ery of ap­pli­ca­tions for en­ter­prises and ser­vice providers.”

Ac­cord­ing to Gupta, Me­taFabric is unique be­cause it of­fers the free­dom and flex­i­bil­ity to use any pro­to­col, any or­ches­tra­tion plat­form, any SDN con­troller, for any DC ap­pli­ca­tion with the as­sur­ance of in­ter­op­er­abil­ity and min­i­mal dis­rup­tion. This com­bi­na­tion of Ju­niper’s tech­nol­ogy and Wipro’s ex­per­tise in of­fer­ing com­plete DC so­lu­tions has led to the lat­ter ex­e­cut­ing sev­eral large DC projects in the past 12 months.
