Enterprises have been looking for solutions to digitally transform themselves to excel on customer expectation and improve on efficiency and agility. The challenge CIOs are facing is that there is no single solution that exists to undertake this journey at the enterprise level. Different technologies provide solutions in varied shapes and forms with their own advantages and disadvantages. Digital transformation is often centered on the cloud as a way to bring multiple technologies together to deliver a holistic ecosystem for digital enterprises. Over time CIOs have chosen technology platforms after stringent organizational compliance and review processes. They have invested resources and time to get these platforms certified for usage for their organization’s business and technical needs. It would be unfair to expect that the workloads running on a certified platform be re-written, re-architected and re-certified just for cloud migration. This might defeat the entire purpose of migrating to cloud due to higher TCO and time loss in recoding and certification. Therefore, the need of the hour is to have proven technology platforms integrated with cloud for more seamless migration at scale.
AWS and Red Hat have been at the forefront for this change and constantly innovating to bring multiple technologies with seamless integration to cloud platforms. One such service recently unveiled is Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA).
ROSA provides an option that reduces hassles associated with moving containerized Red Hat OpenShift workloads to AWS. Wipro has been driving the cloud-based modernization continuum (Rehost to Cloud native to Serverless), and with ROSA being offered as a service, a significant portion of the journey is abstracted. It provides the power of OpenShift to make it cloud independent but with your preferred cloud as AWS. This will further be fast tracked by Wipro’s proprietary modernization and migration toolsets across the application landscape. It provides a massive push to organizations whose private cloud is running on OpenShift to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy without changing their underlying deployment stack and deployment pipelines and reap the benefits based on a pay-as-you-go model. Wipro collaborates with both AWS and Red Hat to provide end-to-end support in adopting hybrid cloud strategies.
Wipro will help customers devise faster cloud migration paths to migrate existing OpenShift workloads leveraging ROSA without investing too much time on recoding and re-architecting. Customers can benefit by having access to a host of native services from AWS to enhance their application efficiency and capabilities at lower cost. Wipro’s C3 Modernization offers proven tools and methodologies to help fast track the migration of workloads to the ROSA. The C3 model built on Wipro's Cloud Studio offers pattern-based toolkits to speed up legacy workload migrations and streamline container-based, cloud-native development.
