TCS, VMware to open Center of Excellence in Milford and Pune

Tata Consultancy Services has partnered with VMware to drive the adoption of enterprise applications for the software-defined data center.

The companies will jointly create pre-integrated and pre-tested solutions to accelerate the adoption and deployment of enterprise scale applications as well as end user computing solutions running on a software-defined data center architecture powered by VMware infrastructure.

To enhance customer evaluation, design and implementation, TCS and VMware will jointly create a new global customer Center of Excellence (CoE) with two data center locations in Milford, Ohio and Pune, India.

The Center of Excellence will help enterprises achieve immediate Return on Investment (ROI) by combining TCS’ infrastructure transformation expertise with a software-defined data center architecture powered by VMware to enable a strategic evolution for the jointly developed offerings and solutions.

Software defined solutions deliver lower operating costs, increased performance, availability, reliability, security, and faster service delivery.

TCS will provide architectural design, transformation, and operational expertise to allow customers to transform their business and applications.

VMware will provide its complete software-defined data center portfolio, including virtualized compute, network and storage utilizing VMware vSphere, VMware NSX, VMware Virtual SAN and VMware vRealize Suite.
