Avnet now offers VMware on IBM Cloud and IBM Connections Cloud

IT distributor Avnet has announced it is offering VMware on IBM Cloud through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace as well as IBM Connections Cloud.

This announcement follows a new strategic partnership that the VMware announced with Big Blue back in February, one that would allow users of the former’s software-defined data centre stack to put workloads off-premises and onto IBM’s cloud network, comprised of 45 different data centres worldwide.

IBM Connections Cloud includes IBM Verse, an integrated email, social collaboration software and third-party applications delivered on IBM Cloud. According to Avnet, it’s the first IBM Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product offered through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace.

All offerings are sold on a consumption model. Current Avnet/SoftLayer partners can access VMware technologies through existing Avnet/SoftLayer agreements.
