Using advanced automation developed through the partnership between IBM and VMware, you can now go from weeks to hours in deploying a new VMware environment on IBM Cloud with two new offerings:
- VMware Cloud Foundation™ on IBM Cloud: Allows you to deploy a natively integrated software-defined stack for compute, network, and storage, based on vSphere, NSX and VSAN, and architected to VMware Validated Designs. Read about them here.
- VMware vCenter Server® on IBM Cloud: Provides a choice of flexible deployments of vSphere hypervisors managed by vCenter Server.
With these new offerings, IBM is providing new choices for you to preserve your investment in existing workloads and solutions while taking advantage of IBM Cloud’s global footprint and scale.
It is now easier to deploy and operate a seamless and consistent cloud that spans hybrid environments as you move your existing workloads to the cloud or create new ones. You can continue to use the same familiar tools and scripts to manage your workloads—all without having to retool or refactor your applications.
All of the above is available to you in the predictable, month-to-month, OPEX consumption model of SoftLayer, giving you total flexibility and freedom to control your expenses.
Your future cloud begins here.
