Atos, VMware extend strategic partnership to help organisations derive value from data

Companies expand partnership to help meet customers’ data sovereignty and interoperability needs, and align with Gaia-X principles

Atos VMware partnership

Atos and VMware are expanding their strategic partnership by working to deliver an integrated set of capabilities that help speed up the development of ‘data spaces’.

Data Spaces are platforms that enable greater data exchange, collaboration, and monetisation between organisations or industries while maintaining data sovereignty and interoperability, regardless of the underlying infrastructure.

With this collaboration effort on data space development, the companies plan to deliver an integrated set of capabilities that help enable data and industry applications to be used and shared more strategically to boost national and regional digital economies. In addition, the expanded collaboration will deliver capabilities aligned to the Gaia-X architecture and serve as a key enabler and booster of the Gaia-X initiative, which seeks to accelerate the exchange of data through new digital platforms that comply with standard rules.

The companies plan to combine VMware’s multi-cloud and app modernisation capabilities with the Atos cloud, as well as cybersecurity expertise and technology integration from Atos. The capabilities are designed to provide businesses and industries with the key building blocks to rapidly design, develop, deploy, secure, and manage data spaces compliant with jurisdictional data governance requirements.

“With a comprehensive set of data space capabilities from VMware and Atos, organisations will gain access have a viable and rapid way to more securely share, manage and monetise their data,” said Laurent Allard, head of Sovereign Cloud EMEA, VMware. “Today’s world is multi-cloud. Aligned to the principles of Gaia-X, the suite of capabilities will be designed to deliver the interoperability, reversibility and security required for European businesses and industries to create value from data and drive their digital ambitions faster.”

Frédéric Malicki, CTO, Southern Europe, Atos added:”By supporting the acceleration of data space development and data sovereignty with the capabilities from VMware and Atos, we expect to give customers the tools to drive value not just from their own data but also from federated data, collaboratively with partners and peers. Organisations can transform existing data into new services that, for example, could help farmers better predict the weather or human health organisations improve living conditions for the elderly with automated energy management.”

With data hosted on a common peer-to-peer framework to ensure the compatibility of architecture between cloud providers, organisations can place their data with any of the participating cloud providers to take full advantage of the services they offer while retaining the ability to move apps or federate data on other cloud provider platforms as required.
