ibm vmware partnership

This week, the eyes of tech industry analysts have been focused on Las Vegas, as those analysts waited for possible major announcements coming out of the IBM InterConnect conference. 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.
