Infosys and Hitachi Data Systems Expand Partnership to Deliver Next-Generation Infrastructure and Data Center Transformation Solutions


Infosys today announced the expansion of its partnership with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) to bring next-generation infrastructure and data center 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.

Partnership Highlights:

        - The new data center 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% virtualized environment with management, orchestration and hypervisor


        - 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
