vCloud Suite is providing management, automation, and orchestration for the private cloud to help IGATE accelerate the delivery of new products and services to the market and provide an environment for customers to view proof of concept, as well as support software development lifecycles.

This will help their businesses become more agile and adaptable to changing market dynamics. VMware will play a key role in our IT strategy as we can leverage their technologies to perform customization and automation to enable hybrid cloud models.”

“Organizations such as IGATE are adopting the software-defined data center as the proven model for running agile, secure, and scalable data centers,” said Arun Parameswaran, Managing Director, VMware India.

According to an IDC report commissioned by VMware, customers in India are expected to save an estimated $4 billion between 2014 and 2020 by adopting a software-defined approach to managing IT.
