Atos and VMware Expand IoT Partnership
France-based IT integrator Atos has extended its collaboration with Dell subsidiary VMware, which provides computer and network visualisation services to offer a comprehensive set of IoT services.
The companies will bring together their respective IoT solutions. The VMware Pulse IoT Center will be integrated into the Atos Codex IoT Services management framework to enable the flow of data between connected IoT devices, VMware’s Edge Gateway, datacentre and the cloud. By expanding the partnership, the companies hope to enable an uninterrupted flow of qualitative IoT data at enterprise scale, allowing companies to build new business models to benefit from their IoT data.
Bask Iyer, CIO, VMware and General Manager Edge/IoT, Dell Technologies, said in a statement: “Infrastructure that used to be in a data center has expanded to cloud, mobile and now IoT. VMware simplifies Edge and IoT infrastructure complexity, security and scale, to enable customers to focus on building applications for their business rather than the infrastructure beneath it. By partnering with Atos, we are expanding our support for customer IoT deployments with the solutions and services to build and run the next-generation infrastructure foundation for the digital enterprise.”
