As businesses build and deploy new workloads, they need to be ‘cloud smart’ and determine the right location for each workload, whether on-premises on in the public cloud. The workloads that are best run on-premises do not have to be cut-off from the benefits of the public cloud. VMware’s core IT infrastructure offerings have evolved to enhance on-premises workloads with the power of cloud services, and the flexibility of a cloud operating model. The Core+Cloud Event covers these key new solutions from VMware – vSphere+, vSAN+, VCF+ and more – that enable cloud transformation without cloud migration.
Learn how you can meet your organization’s cloud and application requirements, spanning private, public, hybrid and multi-cloud. Accelerating value at every stage of the cloud journey, VMware delivers the fastest, safest, and most cost-effective path to realize your cloud strategy, for your applications. Gain insights into delivering enterprise applications on the latest cloud platform offerings from VMware, where organizations are able to Modernize, Protect and Manage on-premises environment from the cloud. You’ll discover new ways to improve performance, enhance efficiency and boost security, all while ensuring a more sustainable future.
|9:00 – 9:45 AM||Keynote – Accelerating Your Cloud Transformation With VMware
Many business-critical workloads run on-premises for reasons that include security, privacy, governance, latency, performance, and economics. Unfortunately, these workloads may be spread across infrastructure siloes or sites and may not supply the toolsets needed to accelerate development or realize many of the benefits that the public cloud can offer. Break free from these constraints with vSphere+, vSAN+ and VCF+, which bring the benefits of cloud to on-premises workloads, delivering high-value cloud services for IT admins and developers to supercharge IT productivity and accelerate developer velocity for your existing and next-gen applications. In this keynote, we will discuss how to accelerate your cloud transformation without cloud migration.
