SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. – (February 17, 2021) – Virtusa Corporation, a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions that help clients change and disrupt markets through innovation engineering, today announced it has earned the Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization. This achievement validates Virtusa’s deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven expertise in deploying and managing production workloads in the cloud using containers and managing hosted Kubernetes environments in Microsoft Azure.

More than 75% of global organizations are expected to run containerized applications in production by 2022.  Many are looking for a partner with advanced skills to migrate their existing containerized workloads to the cloud or assist them in developing cloud-native applications using container technologies, DevOps patterns, and a microservices approach.

Working with Microsoft Azure, Virtusa supports organization’s successful cloud transformation experiences through cloud migration, modernization, and innovation services.

Virtusa’s Microsoft Azure services include:

  • Cloud migration combining Virtusa’s three-phase migration methodology and Microsoft Azure Migration workbench to build a comprehensive cloud journey roadmap.
  • Cloud-native solutions that support applications on the cloud, rapidly deploy microservices, and ensure continuous innovation and delivery through DevOps.
  • Business continuity designed to reduce costs and automate solutions with Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup within cloud environments.
  • Cloud automation to create, monitor, manage, and deploy resources to a hybrid cloud environment.
  • Security and compliance that protects workloads, monitors system health, collects security events, and performs proactive forensic, audit, and breach analysis to improve compliance.
  • Infrastructure managed services to implement, monitor, and manage cloud infrastructure that adapts to the market’s dynamic needs, delivers business value, and prepares for the digital age.

Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their container-based workload deployment and management practices, are able to earn the Kubernetes on Azure advanced specialization.

“Virtusa supports organizations’ cloud transformation journeys by providing the infrastructure to create profitable outcomes and improve customer experiences from built-in data, analytics, and security capabilities,” said Raymond Hennings, executive vice president, Virtusa. “Virtusa’s achievement of the Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure highlights how our domain expertise, proprietary tools, frameworks, and accelerators combined with Azure’s best practices, multilayer security, and unified management work together to rapidly deploy services and ensure continuous innovation.”
