Infosys Launches Its Unified Cloud Ecosystem

Infosys Launches Its Unified Cloud Ecosystem

With so many cloud options in hand, convergence is the need of the day. This was the focus of HP’s big recent push into cloud computing (See: “Waiting for Cloud Standards Is Like Waiting for Godot” ). Now, Indian IT consulting major Infosys has announced the launch of the Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub as an integration mechanism to bring all cloud services under one roof. It promises to enable “enterprises to create, adopt and govern cloud services across the ecosystem.”

It features a “smart brokerage feature” that claims to provide “an enterprise-wide decision support mechanism to select, compare and deploy cloud services from across providers. Decisions can be based on evaluation of over
20 parameters such as quality of service, technology compatibility, regulatory compliance needs and total cost of ownership of application workloads.” I had covered the concept of cloud brokering earlier (See: How The Cloud Broker Can Help Your Business).

Our clients are dealing with complexities of a fragmented cloud environment. The Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub provides organizations a unified gateway to build, manage and govern their hybrid cloud ecosystem. This solution allows clients to fully realize the benefits from the long-standing promise of the cloud,” said Vishnu Bhat, Vice-President and Global Head – Cloud at Infosys.

The Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub has the support of several big names in the cloud computing world, including Amazon Web Services, CA Technologies, Dell, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM, Microsoft and VMware. Several of them put out statements lauding this initiative and how they planned to participate in it.

“At Dell, we realize enterprises are taking multiple paths to the cloud and we’re excited to have our Boomi integration technology be part of the Cloud Ecosystem Hub. Our relationship with Infosys provides more choice to
customers seeking to transform their business with cloud solutions,” said Rick Nucci, General Manager, Dell Boomi.

With the cloud at the center of Windows Server 2012, System Center 2012, and Windows Azure, Microsoft offers end-to-end services for private, public, and hybrid cloud. As a Cloud Ecosystem Integrator, Infosys, with its Cloud Ecosystem Hub and related suite of services, can bring customers an enterprise view of the cloud ecosystem to help them select the services they need,” said Mark Miller, Director, Server and Tools Business Marketing, Microsoft.

This latest launch is expected to add to Infosys’ growing cloud business that currently accounts for around 6% of its global revenues of $7 billion.
