Skava joins HPE-driven Cloud28+ to offer new hybrid cloud retail solutions

Infosys announced its membership as a technology partner in the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)-driven Cloud28+ community and digital platform. By leveraging the Cloud28+ community’s vast network of service providers, Skava, a wholly owned subsidiary of Infosys, aims to expand its market presence in countries where business and regulatory considerations call for private and hybrid cloud deployments working with local partners.

Cloud28+ helps cloud service providers and independent software vendors form new alliances with each other and end-user customers, and offers services via a vast catalog of thousands of Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service, and Platform-as-a-Service offerings. Professional services, cloud software, and deployable apps are also offered via the community’s digital platform.

Together with HPE, Skava is creating a hybrid cloud version of its retail microservices technology stack, capable of being deployed across cloud environments, including public, private, hosted, and managed. This benefits customers through:

·                  Bursting capabilities – the ability to move between on-premises to hosted or public cloud

·                  Openness – no platform lock-in with flexible application catalog integration

·                  Flexible financing – organizations can choose either public, on-premises via HPE Flexible Capacity Services and financing options, or hosted via the Cloud28+ partner network

·                  Deployment from anywhere – work with the local Cloud28+ partner network to find the right service provider to address local business requirements

“We’re excited to join the Cloud28+ community to offer cloud solutions that help us expand our business. This membership enables a service-oriented, collaborative approach as we create dynamic hybrid cloud solutions through Cloud28+, while sharing knowledge with the world’s largest independent cloud service provider network,” said Arish Ali, CEO of Skava.

“The mission of Cloud28+ has always been focused on offering customers more choice and streamlined access to hybrid IT solutions that meet their unique business requirements across different vertical industries,” said Xavier Poisson Gouyou Beauchamps, Vice President, Cloud28+ and Service Providers Worldwide, HPE. “Skava is a premier modern digital commerce platform, making it a perfect fit to enhance our rich ecosystem of Cloud28+ partners and services.”  

“As companies undergo digital transformation and take a digital-first approach to today’s business opportunities and challenges, Infosys is among their foremost choice for an IT services partner to help them drive cloud adoption,” said Ravi Kumar, President and Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Infosys. “The Cloud28+ community of trusted HPE partners will allow Infosys to benefit from the most up-to-date cloud services and knowledge in the industry.”

The hybrid Skava cloud retail solution will leverage an HPE deployer, based on Docker and Kubernetes technologies, and through the Cloud28+ platform allow Skava to offer a “package once – deploy everywhere” approach. Skava can also take advantage of HPE’s global scope and offerings, including support services, joint selling initiatives, and flexible financing options.

Cloud28+ counts nearly 700 partners contributing to a catalogue of 24,000 build and consume services. Focused on matching business requirements, customers can find partners and data centers in the countries of their choice, using a comprehensive, intuitive search engine. Cloud28+ partners offer services out of more than 400 data centers in every region of the world. Customers can even submit their Request for Proposals to the Cloud28+ team for a custom response.

Cited by 451 Research as the world’s largest cloud aggregator, Cloud28+ members include service providers, ISVs, solution providers, distributors, systems integrators, as well as some universities and government institutions – located in 60 countries.
