Expand workloads to the cloud with IBM Cloud infrastructure

With VMware and IBM Cloud infrastructure, you can integrate, expand or migrate your on-premises workloads onto high-performance, global cloud resources. Easily extend your VMware footprint around the world on demand and control it all with the same VMware management control panel your team already uses.

Design your cloud solution with Cloud Professional Services

The Cloud Professional Services team at IBM helps you to accelerate, design and implement VMware solutions on bare metal servers. This means you can more quickly create a seamless hybrid cloud environment and gain the ability to "lift and shift" or "lift and replicate" with no changes needed to the workloads/applications. The entire hybrid environment can then be managed as one. The IBM Cloud becomes an extension of your on-premises data centers.
