Infosys picks SUSE OpenStack to build private cloud solution
Infosys has launched a private cloud solution by partnering with open source pioneer Micro Focus SUSE. The latest development leverages SUSE OpenStack to help businesses move towards their digital transformation journey.
The new announcement bolsters the existing relationship between the two companies, and positions Infosys as a strategic Global Platinum partner for Micro Focus SUSE, backed by more than 500 architects and consultants with data centre transformation and migration capabilities.
“We believe that this collaboration will impact businesses positively and help them propel their digital strategy especially in sectors such as financial services, life sciences, retail, manufacturing, energy and utilities,” said Ravi Kumar, president and deputy chief operating officer, Infosys, in a joint statement.
Infosys and Micro Focus SUSE have jointly invested in a centre of excellence to develop validated reference architectures, accelerators and factory-based migration solutions. The new partnership will give a boost to that centre and enhance private cloud adoption among enterprise customers. “System integrators like Infosys are critical in bridging legacy IT with emerging cloud-native technologies using SUSE OpenStack Cloud,” said Ronald de Jong, president, sales, Micro Focus SUSE, in a statement.
Infosys is set to enhance its presence in Europe and generate new business and insights through SUSE OpenStack adoption. In March this year, the Bengaluruheadquartered company expanded its focus towards open source by joining the Open Invention Network (OIN). That decision will help the company persuade clients outside India and make the newly launched private cloud solution successful over time.
