IBM and VMware are two partners that customers can trust with their end-to-end Information Technology needs and have implemented proven solutions together for tens of thousands of companies across the globe. IBM and VMware have the distinction of being the two original innovators in virtualization technology. IBM invented computer virtualization with the mainframe back in the 70’s and VMware innovated virtualization on the x86 platform back in the 90’s. IBM became VMware’s first OEM partner back in 1998 and the two companies develop joint solutions that help customers optimize and simplify their IT infrastructure to drive down operating costs and create high performing and resilient systems to run business critical applications.
Together, IBM and VMware solutions are unmatched in their quality, completeness, and value for customers. One of the most recent and very exciting solutions we’ve developed together is the IBM PureFlex™ System that is featured in the Enterprise Solutions tab and in the video on this page:
