IBM and VMware extend their partnership to IBM Business Partners

Share this post:

At IBM InterConnect 2016, IBM and VMware announced a strategic partnership to accelerate enterprise hybrid cloud adoption. Since then, the two companies have jointly provided additional services and solutions for clients to optimize, integrate and extend their VMware environments to the cloud with ease and speed.

This initiative has grown to include more than 1,000 clients and 4,000 IBM service professionals.

And now, in an industry first, IBM and VMware are pleased to announce in conjunction with the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference that they’ve expanded their partnership to IBM Business Partners, providing even more reach to VMware and IBM Cloud users around the world with a portfolio of services that includes planning, architecture, migration, and end-to-end management.  This exclusive agreement enables IBM Business Partners to resell VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware software licenses on IBM Cloud.

VMware Cloud Foundation

This standardized software defined data center solution brings together IBM Bluemix infrastructure with VMware vSphere, Virtual SAN, NSX and SDDC Manager for a seamless hybrid cloud experience.

VMware software licenses

Organizations can deploy a custom VMware environment by combining IBM Bluemix infrastructure and VMware software licenses to fit their unique business requirements.

Another benefit is that IBM Business Partners and their clients can bring their own VMware licenses to the IBM Bluemix infrastructure.

VMware will be joining IBM at InterConnect 2017, 19 – 23 March. Check out the VMware on IBM Cloud sessions.
