Overview

IBM at VMware Explore 2022

Making the move to the hybrid cloud is no longer a choice but a reality for most businesses. While many enterprises are enhancing their initial cloud investments with new technologies to enable their modernization journey, a hybrid cloud is not just about tools, capabilities and skill sets. Rather, it’s a combination of agility, scalability and a robust infrastructure.

Whether you’re tasked with modernizing your workloads, maintaining security compliance in a regulated industry, data center transformation, ensuring business continuity and disaster recovery, or enabling a remote workforce through DaaS, IBM Cloud® for VMware Solutions makes it simpler for your organization to capitalize on the tremendous potential of the cloud.

We’re coming to VMware Explore 2022 with a power-packed agenda and would love to meet you. See you at Booth #501.
