Kyndryl and VMware are collaborating on app modernisation and multicloud services by combining VMware solutions and Kyndryl’s design, build and managed services.
“We’re excited to embark on this journey with VMware and intend to leverage a rich and productive history of joint solution architectures, common designs, and deep relationships to provide customers the solutions, services and support they need to achieve their business transformation goals,” said Stephen Leonard, global alliances, and partnerships leader, Kyndryl. “Through this important partnership, Kyndryl and VMware will help companies design and deploy mission-critical workloads that can modernise their applications and operations to reap the benefits of cloud and multicloud computing.”
Kyndryl also plans to work with VMware to expand its existing multicloud advisory, implementation, and management services to support the VMware Tanzu platform and deploy vSphere workloads to VMware multi-cloud infrastructure running in all public clouds.
“Multicloud is the digital business model for the next 20 years. With the average organisation running hundreds of apps across many different clouds, customers need solutions and strategic partners that enable their organisations to be as agile and resilient as possible. This is the power of the VMware and Kyndryl partnership,” said Susan Nash, senior vice president, strategic corporate alliances, VMware. “Kyndryl is a strategic partner that brings world-class solutions, skills, expertise, and experience to the companies’ mutual customers. Together, we will empower customers to achieve smarter paths to cloud, edge, and app modernisation; provide autonomy for developers; and enable a more secure, frictionless distributed workforce.”
To further the global reach and impact of their collaboration, Kyndryl and VMware have established local, regional, and worldwide alignment of their respective capabilities, expertise and resources that will facilitate solutions planning, investment, and execution.
The two companies are jointly developing innovations through a Joint Innovation Lab (JIL), which spearheads and drives delivery model innovations to better reach and serve customers. The JIL programs will further focus on developing solutions for app modernisation, containers, observability, and security with VMware Tanzu, as well as multicloud management solutions. Kyndryl and VMware will closely align and optimise their collaboration in support of VMware Cross-Cloud™ services to provide infrastructure and applications services and support to customers, independent of the underlying cloud provider environments.
