Infosys expands partnership with HDS

Infosys today announced the expansion of its partnership with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) to bring next-generation infrastructure and datacenter transformation solutions to enterprises.

The new solutions will help improve operational efficiencies and facilitate smooth transition of their IT infrastructure to new cloud-based environments.

Infosys will also establish a center of excellence to co-create pay-per-use solutions with HDS. Enterprises can then convert a significant share of their capital expenditure, related to infrastructure and data center management, into operational expenditure.

The new datacenter transformation solutions, developed by Infosys and HDS, are tailored to meet refresh cycles of enterprise data centers. The two partners will also create reference architectures and solution frameworks to accelerate private cloud deployments

Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub is a first-of-its-kind solution that helps enterprises build and manage a unified hybrid cloud environment. This will integrate with Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) to dramatically reduce time-to-market and simplify complex migrations.

The combination will enable enterprises to move to a 100 percent virtualized environment with management, orchestration and hypervisor integration.

Infosys will facilitate industrialization of big data programs by deploying its Big Data platform on Hitachi UCP creating reference architectures for the Hadoop ecosystem. Infosys Big Data platform enables real-time operationalization of decisions across enterprise systems and is part of the services offered by Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub.

Infosys and HDS will create several private cloud offerings to be delivered as-a-service related to ERP, CRM, Exchange and Collaboration, with flexible pricing models. This will help enterprises reduce capital expenditure on their cloud infrastructure and optimize their private and public cloud investments.

Infosys and HDS are collaborating to deploy SAP HANA on a HDS SAP HANA Appliance in both scale-up and scale-out solutions. This will help enterprises to optimally scale with certified reference architecture, speed, flexibility, and rapid implementation leading to lower total cost of ownership and better return on investment.

Brian Householder, chief operating officer, Hitachi Data Systems said, “We are pleased to take our relationship to the next level by delivering the latest Hitachi Data Systems ‘Continuous Cloud Infrastructure’ solutions to help our mutual customers, around the world, deploy the most available, automated and agile environment for next-generation datacenters and cloud solutions.”

UB Pravin, chief operating officer and member of the board, Infosys said, “Growing our partnership with Hitachi Data Systems will enable us to bring together our complementary capabilities around cloud and big data to help our customers enhance their IT infrastructure with new technology solutions.”
