Infosys has launched a private cloud solution by partnering with open source pioneer Micro Focus SUSE. The latest development leverages SUSE OpenStack to help businesses move towards their digital transformation journey.
The new announcement bolsters the existing relationship between Infosys and Micro Focus SUSE and positioned Infosys as a strategic Global Platinum partner for Micro Focus SUSE, backed by more than 500 architects and consultants with data centre transformation and migration capabilities.
“We believe that this collaboration will impact businesses positively and help them propel their digital strategy especially in sectors such as financial services, life sciences, retail, manufacturing, energy and utilities,” said Ravi Kumar, president and deputy chief operating officer, Infosys, in a joint statement.
Infosys and Micro Focus SUSE have jointly invested in a centre of excellence to develop validated reference architectures, accelerators and factory-based migration solutions. The new partnership will give a boost to that centre and enhance private cloud adoption among enterprise customers.
“System integrators like Infosys are critical in bridging legacy IT with emerging cloud-native technologies using SUSE OpenStack Cloud,” said Ronald de Jong, president — sales, Micro Focus SUSE, in the statement.
Infosys is set to enhance its presence in Europe and generate new businesses and insights through the SUSE OpenStack adoption. In March, the Bengaluru-headquartered company expanded its focus towards open source by joining Open Invention Network (OIN). That decision would help the company persuade clients outside India and make the newly launched private cloud solution successful over time.
