More and more, companies are taking a software-defined approach for managing multi-cloud infrastructures. VMware has always been really good at abstracting the physical infrastructure challenges that everyone faces when managing multi-clouds using a software-defined approach. Managing applications that are cloud-native, traditional, or a combination of both that are distributed across many clouds is challenging. Application development teams like the ease of leveraging native public cloud services but are challenged with having that same experience across all clouds. This complexity makes it difficult for developers to move at the speed of their business, increases security risks and costs, and decreases performance and revenue. At VMworld 2021, VMware announced VMware Cross-Cloud services aligning with their Any Cloud, Any App, Any device strategy that builds upon the five key pillars around cloud infrastructure and management, apps, security and networking, and the edge. Check out the 60 second recap below for more details.
VMware also revealed new capabilities for their cloud and modern apps portfolio including a new free open-source community edition helping customers and developers accelerate their modern apps journey. Check out the 60 second recap below.
VMware also announced new innovations in the security space to deliver and end-to-end Zero-Trust Security architecture that includes data center and public clouds that incorporates security into the apps, access from any device and extends to the edge. Check out the 60 second recap below.
