The solution has been built using Wipro's leading Open Source Cloud frameworks and SUSE Cloud, SUSE's enterprise OpenStack cloud platform which is integrated with a cloud management layer, stitching the private and public cloud layer together.
Today, Open Source has become a key driver for advancements around cloud based solutions. Wipro's OpenStack Cloud Reference Architecture is a part of Wipro's vision of Hybrid Cloud Computing. By using industry leading hypervisors and storage solutions with the best-in-class Software Defined Network solutions at the base, the OpenStack solution becomes even more powerful. Wipro and SUSE's joint OpenStack cloud solution has the ability to allow unified Application Programming Interfaces (API) across private and public Clouds and can be tailored for private cloud implementation as it adds elasticity and agility to the existing IT infrastructure. This next-gen Hybrid cloud solution stack supports compute-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service and network function-as-a-service.
