VMware, Inc., the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced VMware vCloud Director has delivered a private cloud at Hexaware Technologies, a leading global provider of IT & BPO services and consulting Services.
Hexaware has strategically built its private Cloud RAINMAKER leveraging the best in class VMware solution that brings the power of Cloud computing to the data center, decreasing IT cost while increasing IT responsiveness. As a result of the implementation, Hexaware will realize optimum self provisioning and enhanced security management. RAINMAKER further illustrates the capability of Hexaware to offer such solutions to joint customers using VMware products.
The VMware vShield Endpoint solution for VMware vSphere 4.1 and VMware View 4.5 environments offer library and APIs for integrating partner security appliances that can introspect into file activity at the hypervisor layer. Imagine taking an endpoint security appliance from a vendor, putting it into the virtualized/cloud environment and tapping into their APIs to do all the protection without installing any agent on the virtual machines. This simplistic approach vastly reduces the performance impact on the virtual environment and, may even offer considerable cost savings in terms of license fees.
“Compared to the traditional model, this private cloud helps us achieve two major objectives. Firstly, there is a cost reduction potential of up to 30% through optimizing computing resources and secondly, this implementation transforms the fixed and committed cost into a variable cost model thereby providing increased flexibility to either ramp up or down in this dynamic world,” said Nataraj. N, Chief Information Officer, Hexaware Technologies Limited.
T Srinivasan, Managing Director, VMware India & SAARC said, “It is indeed a proud moment to announce a VMware vCloud® Director deployment delivering a private cloud in India on the VMware platform for Hexaware Technologies. Businesses have started realizing the value of deploying cloud in the organization. I am extremely optimistic that soon India will transition from a growing to a maturing cloud market and partners like Hexaware play the catalyst in building this ecosystem.”
