VMworld 2019 Europe: Where next for VMware?
In the same way many enterprises have had to adapt and innovate in the face of new challengers and market changes, VMware is also in the midst of huge transformation of its own.
The company’s server virtualisation software is commonplace within enterprise datacentres, but with many firms increasingly looking to shutter their server farms, move off-premise, and embrace cloud-native development practices, VMware has had to adapt accordingly.
As such, the firm has moved to align itself with the major public cloud players, and help their joint customer tap into the benefits that come from operating a hybrid cloud setup.
At the same time, the company has also made a concerted effort to ensure its technologies can continue to support customers as they negotiate re-engineering their application estates, so they can take advantage of containers, and adopt microservices strategies, for example.
That’s just a snapshot of the huge body of work the company has undertaken in recent years, which we will examine more closely in this e-guide. It also offers a round-up of some of the biggest announcements VMware made at this year’s VMworld US 2019 conference, as part of a countdown towards its European conference in November 2019.
