VMware has a vision to use NSX as the glue to bind heterogeneous endpoints together (Public Cloud, Private Cloud, New App Frameworks, End Users, Branch, Edge, IOT) that is secure, automated and consistent. The following VMware NSBU announcements are the first generation of this vision.
VMworld US and EU
VMware vSphere Integrated OpenStack 3.0 has been announced. This release is about supporting OpenStack Mitaka and providing enterprise-level features within VIO.
Today there will be announcements of VMware’s intention to change its focus from competing against the big boys (AWS, Azure, etc.) with vCloud Air and deliver a Cross-Cloud Architecture solution stack that will allow customers to tie them all together with a single policy engine for customers.
Gregg Robertson and myself are asking for your support in voting for our proposed VMworld session. Unfortunately, the VMworld Catalog does not display the complete text of each proposed session, so I have provided that below to clearly explain what we intend to cover. The voting process is very simple:
VMware vRealize Automation 7.0 has been announced. This release is about simplifying the deployment process and improving the user experience. This release is the prelude to some major functionality additions next year.
VMware vRealize Business 7.0 has been announced.
This was my third VMworld and I had a great time mixing and talking to people. My favourite areas were the Hang-Space and Solutions Exchange. The purpose of this post is to summarise my thoughts on where the industry is heading and how we as participants need to adapt.
