In a world of increasing connectedness, through social media and the Internet of Things, there seems to be an ever growing pressure for businesses to adopt cloud environments and ITaaS mentalities.  However, many are still skeptical about how the cloud can help their business and even what the cloud is in the first place.  Don’t worry, cloud doesn’t mean that your data is hanging out in those puffy white collections of water vapor in the sky and rain doesn’t send your archived data down the storm drain.  

ibm vmware partnership

On Monday, we got our first taste of just such an announcement. IBM and VMware announced a new hybrid cloud partnership that will allow users of VMware tools such as vSphere, NSX and Virtual SAN to deploy their existing VMware infrastructures on IBM SoftLayer, the company’s public cloud IaaS offering. For two companies that have long talked of hybrid cloud as an important opportunity to provide greater flexibility and choice for users, the announcement is certainly a momentous occasion.
