Global clients move mission-critical VMware workloads to IBM Cloud

By: Philip Guido

As announced at VMworld Europe 2018, enterprises that rely on continuous availability can now deploy VMware workloads across 18 IBM Cloud availability zones in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. Oil and gas, financial services, and health are just some of the industries that need to migrate legacy applications requiring high availability. And IBM and VMware are partnering to help enterprises speed hybrid cloud management and adoption.

Why is this offering significant? By deploying VMware workloads in IBM’s completely automated, managed cloud architecture, enterprises can prevent application downtime and automate failovers — and modernize workloads in a secure, multi-cloud platform. Compared to high-availability implementations in traditional data centers, this type of cloud management provides clients with more cost-effective solutions.
