VMware, Cisco and EMC announced that KPIT Cummins has deployed the Vblock platform for a Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) implementation to serve 1,200 users across India. The deployment will enable KPIT Cummins to scale its infrastructure and enable employee access to their hosted virtual desktop from anywhere across end-user devices.

The Vblock Infrastructure Platform is the industry’s first completely integrated offering that combines virtualization, networking, computing, storage, security, and management technologies into a standard product with end-to-end vendor accountability.

As a provider of product engineering and IT consulting solutions and services to global corporations in the manufacturing and energy & utilities space, KPIT Cummins has a large IT infrastructure setup in India – made up of 6,000-plus desktops and laptops spread across multiple locations. KPIT Cummins offers a wide range of solutions & services using technology to the manufacturing corporations and also provides L1, L2 and further enterprise product support on behalf of large IT organizations.

KPIT Cummins deployed Vblock 1, which is designed for large Virtual Machines in a compact footprint, and provides for a mid-sized configuration to deliver a broad range of IT capabilities to organizations of all sizes.

“Desktop refreshes are done every three years in a typical large organisation. Instead of upgrading our PCs this time, we chose to implement VDI to achieve greater manageability, security and efficiency. In EMC, Cisco and VMware, we found partners who were willing to lead the consultation process and address our specific needs. And in the Vblock platform, we found not only a certified but a convincing solution that could be deployed right out of the box, saving us time and cost-ridden planning and architecting”, said Shrikant Kulkarni, Senior Vice President, KPIT Cummins.

Through the Vblock platform, the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) company formed by Cisco and EMC with investments from VMware and Intel, aims to simplify and accelerate virtualization and help customers transition to private cloud infrastructures.

“We congratulate KPIT Cummins on being amongst the early adopters of VDI in India. We anticipate that many more Indian enterprises will opt for VDI as they deal with growing deluge of smart devices at the enterprise, an increasingly mobile workforce and constrained IT budgets. The Vblock platform is a perfect solution for VDI implementation with benefits of virtualization and cloud computing,” said Manoj Chugh, President, EMC India & SAARC.

T. Srinivasan, Managing Director, VMware, India & Saarc, “Enterprises today want a model that enables users to be more productive while more effectively managing the growing portfolio of devices, data and applications. We are very excited about this implementation at KPIT Cummins and are very optimistic that this will inspire a lot more enterprises, to adopt VDI."
