In the era of digitalization, businesses can make a big difference by enabling agility and accuracy to produce secure and robust solutions. IT teams need self-service capabilities to respond quickly to market requirements. In order to achieve such potential, a platform with end-to-end integration with low resource requirements and minimal efforts on the fly is essential.
Wipro’s Next Generation Platform as a Service (nPaaS), based on SUSE’s Cloud Application Platform (CAP) coupled with Wipro’s IPs, helps build, manage and sustain container ecosystem through end-to-end automation of container-based IT lifecycle.
nPaaS - The right PaaS
nPaaS, a platform for the container ecosystem, delivers end-to-end operations – both, build and manage. Build is achieved with SUSE CAP's functionalities while management is realized with AppAnywhere, Wipro’s managed service comprising of tightly integrated technologies that deliver end-to-end automation of container-based IT lifecycle.
nPaaS enables the use of any container platform, either natively available, bring your own platform, or a mix of both to deploy at any location – on premise or public cloud.
Some of the salient features of nPaaS are:
- Engineering-led approach to application delivery transformation
- Enhanced user experiences on container platform including Kubernetes
- Lesser system resources consumption such as small memory footprint
- Support for legacy container platforms including Cloud Foundry
- Open Source-centric PaaS
Key roles and responsibilities in the container environment are different from the traditional IT estate (See Figure 1). nPaaS empowers different users based on roles to perform the tasks on their own in an automated way to meet the business demands in an agile mode. The entire lifecycle of operations including building, managing and securing of container platform becomes simpler and more efficient.
