Kyndryl, the IT infrastructure services provider, has announced a strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This partnership will bring together their respective expertise, skills, and global resources to help customers transform their businesses through industry-focused enterprise cloud services and solutions, a statement said.

The IT infrastructure services provider also plans to build out their own internal infrastructure in the cloud, leveraging AWS as a preferred cloud provider. AWS will become a Kyndryl premier global alliance partner as part of this announcement.

As part of the global partnership, Kyndryl will establish an AWS cloud center of excellence (CCOE) to offer customers solutions and services for supporting mission-critical infrastructure, next-generation technologies and modernising applications and workflows across industries. In addition, the AWS CCOE will enable Kyndryl services professionals across the globe to optimise their customers’ migration journeys, tapping into the availability, reliability, and security of the cloud.

The companies are also developing an accelerator for the VMware cloud on AWS. Through the accelerator, skilled practitioners from these three companies will deliver expertise and custom solutions to help enterprises combine their existing VMware investments with AWS services.

Meanwhile, Kyndryl has invested heavily in developing AWS competencies and has built a team of AWS-certified services professionals through its academy. Both the organisations will further invest in educating over 10,000 Kyndryl professionals by the end of 2022, upskilling them in a wide range of AWS skills to support its customers’ rapid adoption of cloud services and solutions around the globe.

“Our ability to freely explore and unleash the combined benefits of AWS cloud services with Kyndryl’s deep industry-specific managed services and expertise will provide an unprecedented level of knowledge and innovation,” said Martin Schroeter, chairman and CEO of Kyndryl. “Together, we will invest in enhancing Kyndryl’s expertise in AWS to help companies modernise, innovate, and compete.”

“Organisations everywhere are choosing AWS to transform their businesses and tackle some of the world’s most difficult challenges – from putting automated vehicles on our streets, to improving healthcare outcomes, to addressing climate change. By combining forces with Kyndryl, we are helping customers of all sizes to modernise faster than ever before, grow their businesses, and transform what’s possible,” said Adam Selipsky, chief executive officer at AWS.

“AWS is VMware’s preferred public cloud partner for vSphere workloads, and Kyndryl and VMware have a partnership built on more than two decades of collaboration. Together, our companies will help customers successfully navigate complex cloud journeys that lead to greater digital innovation while retaining enterprise control,” said Raghu Raghuram, chief executive officer at VMware.
