EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. | BENGALURU, India– Jul. 24, 2023: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading technology services and consulting company, today announced that Wipro FullStride Cloud has partnered with Pure Storage, a provider of enterprise data storage solutions, to help clients accelerate their sustainability journey through the power of technology. The goal is to empower customers to drive a more sustainable data center footprint by providing more efficient strategies to minimize the environmental impact.
Wipro and Pure Storage will leverage their sustainability and technological expertise to incorporate sustainable technology industry best practices into clients’ technology infrastructure. This will include implementing improvements, guided by global industry standards, in overall data center footprint, direct carbon emissions in data storage systems and increased power efficiency.
