IBM Doubles Down on Investment in Cloud Computing
IBM is making a number of business deals in the cloud-computing space, announcing a new partnership with Apple to make its “Swift” programming language more readily accessible:
” By bringing Swift beyond the client to the server, IBM is breaking down barriers between front-end and back-end development, which can provide enterprises a single language to build rich experiences and back-end business logic,” the company says.
In addition to Apple, IBM also deepened ties with VMWare, announcing that services such as VMware vSphere, NSX and Virtual SAN on the IBM Cloud will now be able to run seamlessly as standard components on 45 IBM Cloud Data Centers globally.
Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware:
This partnership, an extension of our 14-year plus relationship with IBM, demonstrates a shared vision that will help enterprise customers more quickly and easily embrace the hybrid cloud.
