21Vianet and IBM today announced the launch of IBM Cloud Managed Services (CMS) in China, enabling local enterprises and multinational corporations in China to utilize IBM's leading cloud solutions for the first time.
21Vianet was selected by IBM as the launch partner for the service, which will enable companies across China to access IBM's IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL)-based capabilities and solutions, managed infrastructure, service-level agreements (SLAs) and management above the hypervisor level.
Ning Qi, senior vice president of 21Vianet, said: "21Vianet is proud to partner with IBM to offer local and multinational companies in China the best-in-class cloud-based solutions and services they require. This new partnership enhances 21Vianet's position in the market and enables us to support an increasing number of companies to leverage the power of the cloud."
Yan Meifeng, general manager of IBM Greater China's information technology services, said: "We are pleased to cooperate with 21Vianet to introduce IBM's CMS Enterprise Cloud in China. Our CMS Enterprise Cloud will provide a wide range of services for Chinese companies, including enhanced safety, reliability and flexibility. We look forward to continuing to work with 21Vianet and our partners across China to share our leading cloud computing technology and service."
The partnership is a key differentiator for 21Vianet, enabling them to provide support beyond the hypervisor level and with a comprehensive range of managed services from IBM—spanning production workloads, high-availability servers, transaction-ready storage and redundancy. IBM CMS is also the first enterprise cloud service to focus on enterprise production workloads and provide support for SAP, Oracle, ERP and CRM.
