Dell EMC inks IBM Cloud for VMware reseller deal

Moving existing VMware workloads from on-premise environments to the cloud can often incur major costs and open up enterprises to security risks due to the need to redesign applications and security policies.

The availability of new SAP-certified bare metal servers in the IBM Cloud includes one of the largest cloud solutions for memory-intensive SAP workloads, and new configurations for VMware environments, big blue explained. HCX allows applications to be migrated with no downtime or refactoring necessary, meaning that customers can modernize their data centers while ensuring business continuity.

The two companies claim customers will benefit not only from the efficiencies of hybrid cloud, but also gain access to IBM services such as Watson and Vodafone's Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities. This will give VMware users a familiar, predictable and valuable experience so they can move their on-premises and public cloud workloads to the IBM Cloud easily. Customers will be able to choose between a fully-cloud hosted service managed by IBM, or a hybrid option that also runs on on-premises hyperconverged infrastructure, when the service becomes available in the fourth quarter.

"Companies in every industry need fast and easy ways to deploy and move workloads to the cloud while not compromising security", said Faiyaz Shahpurwala, general manager of IBM Cloud.

The speed of deployment and capacity expansion in the IBM Cloud helps IT deliver new services to lines of business more quickly and drive their company's growth.

IBM's newest cloud infrastructure for SAP HANA solutions on the IBM Cloud is created to provide clients with larger and more powerful infrastructure to run memory-intensive SAP HANA applications, IBM said in a statement. IBM's private, public and hybrid offerings provide the global scale businesses need to support innovation across industries, while its almost 60 Cloud Data Centers across 19 countries help clients meet their expanding data locality requirements. Essentially what this means is that Vodafone's cloud customers now have a second, hybrid option wherein they can shift their workloads to IBM's cloud, thereby bringing applications and data closer to its customers.

"IBM is an excellent partner for Vodafone", declared Greg Gyttenrauch, Vodafone's director of cloud services.

"This new offering from Vodafone and IBM will enable businesses to utilise a globally consistent, common operating model for running, managing and securing their workloads across clouds", Ajay Patel, senior vice president of product development and cloud services at VMware, said.

"The IBM Cloud is bringing expanded capabilities to Vodafone by providing its customers with quick and easy access to a variety of higher value services across a broader geographical footprint than ever before", added Sebastian Krause, general manager of IBM Cloud Europe.

Dell EMC offers its customers choice for their VMware environments - on-premises or in the IBM Cloud - to help central IT more quickly meet the increasing demands from their businesses and access IBM's cloud-native services including cognitive and analytics.

Dell EMC said it plans to begin reselling VMware's solutions on IBM Cloud to its customers before the end of this year.
