Microsoft and Dell Technologies are expanding their partnership to address a wider range of customer needs and help accelerate digital transformations. The companies will deliver a VMware cloud infrastructure on Microsoft Azure. 

Additionally, customers of both Microsoft 365 and VMware Workspace ONE will be able manage Office 365 across devices through cloud-based integration with Microsoft Intune and Azure Active Directory. Dell-owned VMware will also extend Windows Virtual Desktop capabilities using VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure.

Through the new Dell Technologies Unified Workspace offerings, customers can accelerate their Windows 10 digital transformation journey with Windows Autopilot and Dell Device Provisioning and Deployment Services, such as Dell ProDeploy – all enabled by the integration of Microsoft 365, Workspace ONE and Dell Provisioning Services.

“At Microsoft, we’re focused on empowering customers in their digital transformation journey, through partnerships that enable them to take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud, using the technologies they already have,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “Together with Dell Technologies and VMware, we are providing our mutual customers with an integrated cloud experience and digital workplace solutions to open up new opportunities and meet their evolving needs.”

Azure VMware Solutions, built on VMware Cloud Foundation, enable customers to migrate, extend and run existing VMware workloads from on-premises environments to Azure without needing to re-architect applications or operations. 

“Customers are excited to see us expand our collaboration with Microsoft,” said Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware. “These innovative cloud and client offerings will deliver customers even more value, provide more flexibility to accelerate their hybrid-multi cloud and multi-device journey and accelerate the digital transformation of their business.”
