I’ll be speaking on Monday about integration between VMware applications and broader IBM Cloud services, and I’ll also be present at the IBM booth, for both US and Europe conferences. If you’re there, be sure to stop by and say hi!
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.
IBM Cloud offers Zerto Virtual Replication as one of the add-on services for our VMware Solutions offerings, enabling VM replication and migration between IBM’s cloud and on-premise installations in either direction. IBM Cloud’s Zerto service is a compelling foundation for disaster recovery of VMware workloads, whether you are looking to replicate your own workloads or provide disaster recovery services to your own customers. We’re proud to be one of the sponsors of ZertoCON 2017 and one of Zerto’s featured cloud service provider partners.
If you’re in Boston for ZertoCON 2017, be sure to check out Zeb Ahmed’s presentation on Tuesday, How to Master Disaster Recovery for Enterprise Applications in IBM Cloud.
Andre discusses the workflows that are addressed by a hybrid cloud management product. He carefully differentiates hybrid cloud management from related tools, such as deployment managers and configuration managers, and shows how they fit together to support comprehensive application and infrastructure lifecycle management.
