This week IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions released our May version 1.6 release. The most significant changes in this release are the availability of new hardware choices, and the move to our new vCenter Server architecture, which allows for high availability deployments and aligns with our premier Cloud Foundation offering architecture.
Zane Adam, VP of IBM’s dedicated private cloud offerings, writes to share more details about the IBM, HyTrust, and Intel partnership to offer IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization on top of our VMware offerings.
IBM Cloud also recently announced the general availability of Veeam Availability Suite on IBM Cloud. This offering is independent of the VMware offerings, meaning that you can deploy it in IBM Cloud for our VMware automated offerings, your own custom VMware environments in IBM Cloud, or your own Hyper-V environments in IBM Cloud.
