LEVERAGING STRONG PARTNERSHIP
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.
