Wipro collaborates with Red Hat to certify VEVATO™ Framework on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Managed service offering for verification, validation and performance tuning of telco cloud
East Brunswick, New Jersey, USA and Bangalore, India - November 18, 2015: Wipro Ltd. (NYSE:WIT), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company today announced the launch of its Managed Service Offerings for Verification, Validation and Performance Tuning of Telco clouds. This will be available globally to Network Equipment Providers and Communication Service Providers who are embarking on their SDN/NFV enabled cloud transformation journey.
As a part of this offering, Wipro brings its VEVATO™ (Verification and Validation for Telco Cloud) framework, which is certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. VEVATO™ is an assurance framework which tests the production readiness of telco cloud infrastructure. The certified solution uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform for its NFVI and VIM components running on standard x86 based hardware.
The VEVATO™ framework also provides a simulation environment for testing third-party Virtual Network Functions (VNF), NFV orchestration layer and end-to-end business network services. Certification of the VEVATO™ framework on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform offers telecom customers a solid framework to verify a carrier-grade environment for their telco cloud.
Both Red Hat and Wipro are strongly committed to open source and have been strategic partners for the last nine years. This joint initiative is another example where the two industry leaders are collaborating to help accelerate and apply new innovations in cloud networking. The collaboration is aimed at accelerating the adoption of SDN/NFV and open source technologies in the telecom industry and offering confidence to CXOs on the telco-grade performance of software-defined infrastructure.
Anil Jain, Senior Vice President & Business Head, Communications Business Unit, Wipro Limited said, "Red Hat is a leader in open source technologies and we take great pride that the VEVATO™ framework has been certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The managed verification and validation services from Wipro based on VEVATO™ framework addresses a telecom industry challenge that wants assurance on the telco-grade performance of open source components running on standard x86 based hardware."
Darrell Jordan-Smith, Director, Communications and Media Vertical, Red Hat, said, "Red Hat and Wipro have long collaborated to bring enterprise and telco-grade solutions to customers. As media and telco companies embrace NFV technologies to help reduce infrastructure costs and time to market and enable a much higher degree of automation, Wipro's VEVATO™ solution certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform enables customers to test their cloud solutions against a strong combination of IT technologies that are coupled with capabilities designed with the needs of carrier-grade applications in mind."
