VMware Horizon Air customers will now be able to take advantage of cloud-hosted desktop and application services via the IBM Cloud.
The announcement reinforces IBM Cloud being a strategic cloud partner for VMware.
VMware Horizon Air cloud services delivers full Windows desktops or published applications to desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
“Our strategic partnership with IBM continues to grow and evolve as we look to enable customers to access corporate applications and data through a secure digital workspace," said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, and head of global marketing and communications, VMware. “Customers are asking for choice and innovation, while protecting existing IT investments. Offering VMware Horizon Air on the IBM Cloud addresses customer demands with an enterprise-grade cloud and services from two proven and trusted companies.”
