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 Modernize Core Infrastructure Roadshow 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 - 9:30 AM||Keynote – Modernize Your Core Infrastructure with VMware
IT teams today are looking to modernize, optimize and protect core infrastructure, in order to enable business agility, application developer velocity and resiliency. This is where the new VMware Cloud editions can help, by combining VMware's IT infrastructure software that you know and love, with new cloud services. This enables you to employ the best innovations from VMware’s on-premises and public cloud software offerings into a unified stack to deliver a consistent cloud infrastructure and cloud operating model across your IT environment. This keynote will discuss more about how vSphere+ and the VMware Cloud editions can enhance your on-premises infrastructure to improve operational efficiency, unlock innovation and boost performance.
|9:35 - 10:15 AM||Technical Overview of DPUs with VMware Cloud Foundation and vSAN ESA
This session discusses two foundational technologies in a modern hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI): networking with DPUs and petabyte-scale HCI storage. We will start with a look at the transformative potential of DPU-based acceleration for networking and security. You will understand how VMware Cloud Foundation benefits from SmartNICs--network interface cards furnished with a discrete data processing unit (DPU). These benefits encompass accelerated network performance, reduced costs, improved security, and enhanced observability. Next, we will provide a technical overview of VMware vSAN's Express Storage Architecture (ESA). vSAN ESA enables better performance and resilience while optimizing capacity consumption.
|10:20 - 11:00 AM||Cloud Services to Modernize and Secure Your vSphere-based Environment
You deploy, run and manage your workloads in the location that makes sense for them. A lot of these workloads are run on-premises for reasons like performance, latency, privacy, security, etc. However, these workloads are missing out on a variety of benefits available to workloads in the cloud. Now, vSphere+, vSAN, NSX+, VCF+ bring the power of these cloud services to enhance your on-premises environment. Moreover, powerful add-on services are available to help you easily meet key requirements, including:
- Ransomware recovery: the industry's first and only fully-managed ransomware recovery-as-a-service solution for recovering from modern ransomware
- Disaster recovery: on-demand and easy-to-use disaster recovery-as-a-service solution, delivered with cloud economics
- Capacity management: get easy access to powerful capacity planning and optimization capabilities.
Join this session to learn about how these cloud services can help modernize your core infrastructure.
|11:05 - 11:45 PM||Secure Infrastructure Makes Securing Workloads Easy

|12:35 - 1:05 PM||vSphere and AMD DPUs: A Software-Defined Hardware-Accelerated Data Center, AMD Representative
VMware is moving key infrastructure functions such as networking/security/storage off of the x86 complex, where they contend with applications for expensive CPU server resources, and accelerating them in domain-specific hardware. AMD Pensando is collaborating with VMW to integrate their technologies with the AMD DPU - an industry leading and groundbreaking fully-programmable PCIe adapter. Pensando’s leadership in providing cloud-like agility, security and operational simplicity is ideally suited for partnering with VMW in its next phase of redefining hybrid cloud services. As application resource demands continue to grow, VMW takes advantage of the DPU to offload the main server, freeing up precious CPU cycles, and at the same time bringing key services such as networking/security closer to where applications actually run and operate.
