Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Tuesday said it will partner with information technology services major Wipro to jointly deliver their portfolio of hybrid cloud and infrastructure solutions as a service. 

Bengaluru based Wipro will be able to leverage HPE GreenLake to offer a pay-per-use model that is subscription-based for cloud services while offering Wipro Virtuadesk, its desktop-as-a-service offering, as a combined product enabling work from home ecosystem.

As organisations shift to remote working due to the pandemic, IT services companies have launched solutions to solve pain points in business continuity. Wipro’s desktop as-a-service offering, delivered with HPE GreenLake, the statement said, will help modernise the workplace ecosystem with an AI (artificial intelligence), analytics and automation-powered VDI (virtual infrastructure desktop) solution. 

Customers will be able to manage a variety of workloads to create high-performance virtual compute environments that deliver agile, intelligent and modernized workplaces. The joint offering has already seen success across the banking, financial services, healthcare and insurance industries.

“In this new normal brought on by Covid-19, customers have been turning to HPE more and more for our broad portfolio of secure VDI infrastructure solutions to match their specific use cases or workloads,” Keith White, senior vice president and General Manager of HPE GreenLake cloud services said in a statement.

HPE GreenLake offers a range of cloud services including cloud services for compute, container management, data protection, HPC, machine learning operations, networking, SAP HANA, and storage, VDI, and VMs. The HPE GreenLake Cloud Services business has $4 billion in total contract value, over 700 partners selling HPE GreenLake, and more than 1000 customers in all industry sectors and sizes including Fortune 500 companies, the company says.
