IBM, VMware Partner To Accelerate Cloud Adoption For Enterprises

IBM and VMware have announced a partnership to assist enterprises to benefit from the Cloud’s speed and economics. The new partnership will enable the enterprise companies to use VMware’s virtualization products to deploy and run them on IBM’s cloud data centers. This will allow the companies to easily extend their workloads from their on-premises software-defined data center to the cloud.



Several Fortune 100 companies are utilizing VMware technologies. Hence, this partnership will extend customer investments to thousands of data centers. This will provide the companies the benefit of cost-effectiveness, as they can scale globally while avoiding retooling expenses, development risks and reducing security issues.

“If you don’t embrace these new technologies (IBM’s cloud-based technologies), you won’t continue to survive,” said Jim Comfort, IBM’s chief technology officer for the cloud services. “It is transforming all industries.”

IBM also extends their tools to developers, so that they can develop applications in Swift, the language developed by Apple. This will enable the developers to create apps for iPhone and other Apple devices. IBM is creating other developer-oriented products.

The software WebSphere helps developers link apps to the internet and will work more easily in cloud-oriented settings. IBM’s Bluemix software-development product will work smoothly with GitHub, a service that allows intensive collaboration in software writing.

In 2015, IBM’s revenue from cloud offerings totaled $10.2 billion.
