VMware on IBM Cloud: Securing cloud workloads & disaster recovery

Sponsored By: IBM

Your organization’s data is unique and valuable – but also easily accessible if not properly secured. That’s why companies around the globe are investing in securing their IT infrastructure with platforms that will not only safeguard their information, but offer a backup plan during a disaster incase that information is compromised. Though, this can be difficult when the technology landscape is rapidly changing and the consumption of data keeps increasing. Companies must prepare for the worst and not only learn how to protect their valuable information, but how to retrieve that information in case of an emergency.

Enter VMware on IBM Cloud – the industry leader in virtualization and hybrid cloud management solutions. The trusted IBM Cloud pairs with the best-in-class SoftLayer infrastructure and enables you to consolidate legacy infrastructures onto an automated and centrally-managed, software-defined data center.
