Syniverse adopts VMware on IBM Cloud

IBM (NYSE: IBM) has announced that Syniverse, a global connectivity enabler, has adopted IBM Cloud to expand its flexibility and capacity in serving rapidly changing mobile service needs for its customers, the company said.

Usage of popular Syniverse services, such as its Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), can vary significantly based on seasonal trends. This fluctuation may cause sudden and severe demands on technology resources.

To help manage seasonal spikes in traffic, Syniverse operates a hybrid cloud environment that uses VMware solutions on the IBM Cloud. This enables Syniverse to quickly scale up their existing VMware environments and connect to IBM´s global cloud infrastructure. IBM Cloud also provides the ideal environment for testing and integrating new services so that Syniverse can better meet evolving customer needs without having to create costly test environments.

With USD 15.1B in cloud revenue over the last 12 months, IBM is the global provider of enterprise cloud with a platform designed to meet the evolving needs of business and society. Moving past productivity and cost improvements, the IBM Cloud is tuned for the cognitive and data demands that are driving true differentiation in today´s enterprise. IBM´s private, public and hybrid offerings provide the global scale businesses need to support innovation across industries, while its nearly 60 Cloud Data Centers across 19 countries help clients meet their expanding data locality requirements.
