IBM and VMware Speeds Cloud Adoption in Enterprise

More than 1,400 enterprises, such as Honeywell, tapping into IBM Cloud for VMware solutions

?

At VMworld Europe 2017, IBM and VMware Inc. announced that more than 1,400 enterprises in nearly every industry around the world are extending their VMware environments to the IBM Cloud.

Through the partnership, clients such as Honeywell International and Vodafone are using IBM Cloud’s global reach and cloud-native services, and the infrastructure and operational consistency of VMware Cloud Infrastructure, to create new business opportunities.

IBM and VMware are announcing new solutions to further the partnership and IBM is launching network control and visibility solutions from F5 Networks and Fortinet so that enterprises can continue to extend their VMware environments, as they are, to the public cloud.

In 2016, IBM and VMware set out to tackle a pressing industry challenge: extending existing VMware workloads from on-premises environments to the cloud without having to retool operations, re-architect applications and re-design security policies. Enterprises are able to run their VMware workloads in the cloud and leverage IBM’s AI and analytics services as an extension of their VMware deployment. IBM Cloud for VMware solutions are available across IBM’s global network of nearly 60 cloud data centers in 19 countries.
