ESDS Software Solution has announced its partnership with Red Hat. The new deal is aimed to enable managed cloud hosting services for enterprises in India.

As a result of the collaboration, ESDS’ eNlight Cloud platform will now come with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) to offer out of the box managed data and cloud hosting services for vertical auto scaling of virtual machines. Also, the Nashik-based company is set to provide the needed agility to enterprise customers by leveraging the open source Red Hat platform.

“Today our patented eNlight cloud solution combined with Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform is our unique differentiator,” said Piyush Somani, founder, MD and CEO, ESDS, in a joint statement. “All our products are based on open-source standards. Furthermore, eNlight cloud virtual machines combined with RHEL can help enterprises cut down disaster recovery hosting cost thus giving them an added advantage of cost saving.”

Red Hat awards its Certified Cloud and Service Provider designation to partners following an in-house validation. This certification is expected to help ESDS strengthen its position in the country.

“Through the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program, ESDS can now more easily offer SMEs and enterprises the scalability in the cloud in real time, bill only for actual consumption of resources and help improve performance without changing architecture of their systems,” said Rajesh Rege, managing director, Red Hat India, in the statement.

ESDS offers state-of-the-art cloud hosting through eNlight Cloud. This solution will enable features such as automatic load sensing and scaling, pay-per-consumption metered billing, root access to enterprise databases and managed OS by using RHEL. It is presently targeted at customers from verticals like aviation, banking, manufacturing, oil and gas, shipping and telecommunications.

Earlier this month, ESDS announced its tie-up with Linux distribution maker SUSE to expand its cloud developments. The company also launched its cloud data centre in Mumbai a few months back.
