At the IBM InterConnect 2016 conference on Monday, IBM announced a strategic partnership with VMware. The key objective behind the IBM-VMware partnership – which underscores an evident effort aimed at accelerating hybrid cloud adoption – is to facilitate businesses in benefitting from the speed and economics of the cloud.
Announcing the new partnership, IBM and VMware said that the team-up of the two companies will give enterprise customers the ability to conveniently extend their existing workloads, the way they are, from their on-premises software-defined data center to the cloud.
As a result of the architecture and cloud offering design jointly by IBM and VMware, enterprise customers will be able to automatically provision preconfigured VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) environments -- comprising VMware vSphere, NSX and Virtual SAN -- on the IBM Cloud.
With the help of the resultant SDDC environment, workloads -- without any modifications -- will become deployable by enterprise customers in the hybrid cloud environment, thanks largely to the VMware-based common security and networking models.
Drawing attention to the fact that the new IBM-VMware partnership will basically enable enterprise customers to leverage VMware's proven technologies with IBM's growing footprint of 45 Cloud Data Centers across the world, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger said in a statement: "This partnership, an extension of our 14-year plus relationship with IBM, demonstrates a shared vision that will help enterprise customers more quickly and easily embrace the hybrid cloud."
