Nutanix And Wipro Launch Joint Automated Database Management Solution

Wipro and Nutanix Partner to Launch Digital Database Services (DDS)

The Joint Solution to Streamline Database Delivery and Management, Freeing IT Teams to Innovate

Auckland, New Zealand — April 30, 2020: Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, and Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced the launch of Wipro’s Digital Database Services (DDS) powered by Nutanix Era and Nutanix HCI software. This offering will enable enterprises to efficiently manage databases optimising time and effort of IT teams.

As the data landscape shifts, businesses face constant pressure for innovation resulting in strain on the company’s IT departments. With legacy infrastructures, databases can be one of the components hindering time to value and linear scalability, preventing rapid scaling of operations such as transaction processing in which business can lose valuable transactions or insights that directly impact their revenue or decision-making capabilities. Wipro’s Digital Database Services (DDS), built on Nutanix solutions for Databases including Nutanix HCI software and Nutanix Era, allows enterprises and users to provision and manage databases just-in-time, without prior knowledge of hardware, database software and associated configurations. The result is accelerated application release time, allowing database administrators to focus on new innovation instead.

The DDS offering from Wipro, powered by Nutanix, empowers customers to consolidate their database workloads onto a shared infrastructure to manage database sprawl. It drives efficiency, agility, cost-effectiveness, and scalability across the enterprise by automating and simplifying database administration. Additional benefits delivered by the joint solution include:

  • Cost reduction: Reduction of acquisition and operating costs of database, consolidation and effective utilisation of resources (control sprawl, better lifecycle management), better utilisation of database administrators’ time by allowing them to focus on innovations and optimisations
  • Rapid provisioning: Delivering of services in minutes as compared to days; business lines, database administrators, or non-IT users can consume services through a self-service portal, reducing overall time
  • Innovative pricing: The as-a-service model makes cost predictable and easily dispersed to business units, ensuring service quality and customer satisfaction
  • Reusability: The solution integrates with other third-party cloud management platform and orchestration tools to help reuse existing investment
  • Supportability: Support for multiple database technologies and versions
  • Automation: Enabling of greater efficiency and faster change delivery with better quality and predictability

Satish Yadavalli, Vice President, Cloud and Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said, “Wipro’s joint offering with Nutanix brings agility, speed and flexibility for core and digital applications delivered as a service. Wipro’s Digital Database Services (DDS) powered by Nutanix HCI platform and Era delivers end-to-end services from transition, modernisation, continuous deployment and automated lifecycle management operations of enterprise, open source and NoSQL databases. Integrations are simplified as developers and application owners have access to a repository of customised services APIs. With this joint solution, we are confident of helping our joint customers optimise the Database resources and license cost.”

Bala Kuchibhotla, Vice President and General Manager, Nutanix Era and Business Critical Apps, Nutanix said, “Legacy database management is traditionally complex and requires massive amounts of resources from database administrators, taking away time they could be spending on more critical initiatives. With data volumes growing exponentially year-over-year, provisioning, protection, patching, performance and copy data management operations are becoming even more tedious and expensive. Our partnership with Wipro, will help develop the efficient and elegant Database-as-a-Service solutions for our customers to further our mission of enabling any organisation to embrace the power of the cloud.”
