KPIT has partnered with EMC to
transform its storage and backup environments thereby reducing its
back up window by 60 percent, ensuring 100 percent reliability, and
achieving improved productivity of the datacenter team by over 30
percent. At the same time its Cloud deployment times have reduced
from eight weeks to one week and the deployment of virtual desktops
on EMC’s ExtremIO flash technology is delivering huge energy and
space savings while improving end user experience.

KPIT has been an early technology
adopter, and has been experiencing over 50 percent increase in data
demands. Therefore it needed a long-term strategy for its datacenter
back up, and at the same time wanted to implement a flexible
workplace technology that would simplify desktop management and
double its number of virtual desktops without compromising end user
performance.

KPIT partnered with EMC on its journey
of transformation and deployed integrated Cloud offerings with data
protection with the implementation of EMC’s Vblock architecture
that provides an integrated private cloud offering for a virtual
desktop environment, enables rapid virtualization deployment and
delivers on network performance and storage capacities. KPIT further
deployed a comprehensive disaster recovery solution on the Cloud to
protect its assets thereby becoming the first company in the Asia
Pacific region to establish a virtual desktop infrastructure disaster
recovery solution.

KPIT deployed EMC Avamar deduplication
backup solution that enables backups of the cloud infrastructure and
remote user data, even with thin bandwidth over the Internet. This
has resulted in 60 percent reduction in backup time.

Mandar Marulkar, Vice President and
Global IT Head at KPIT Technologies, said, “EMC technology has
helped us to simplify IT management and reduce the management
overhead of the entire infrastructure. It is due to high end
technologies such as Vblock platform and ExtremIO that we can have
close to 1500 virtual desktops running on a single rack”.

Abhijit Potnis, director Technology
Solutions – India and SAARC at EMC, “We are delighted to support
KPIT in its journey to cater to the increasing and new demands in its
IT environment. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. EMC through
its innovative solutions is helping organizations across the globe to
redefine their application environments and accelerate their journey
to the hybrid cloud”
