James Watters, CTO, VMware Tanzu & Kit Colbert, CTO, Cloud Platform BU, VMware, Derrick Harris from VMware
The cloud transformation has been happening for more than a decade, and today it’s running in overdrive. However, the goal posts for what’s cutting-edge continue to move and the list of environments that fall under the “cloud” umbrella continues to expand. Anyone transforming their infrastructure today is staring down a combination of VMs, public cloud(s), private cloud, containers, Kubernetes, edge, and everything in between.
This bounty of options can seem intimidating but, managed well, it’s actually an opportunity to turn infrastructure into a competitive advantage. Compliance, latency, cost, and other factors can all be addressed by selecting the right platform and architecture for the job. Standardizing on technologies like Kubernetes and the VMware Cloud product lineup means ops teams can manage a wide variety of applications much more efficiently because the infrastructure is doing some of the work for them.
In this webinar, James Watters and Kit Colbert will discuss a range of topics, including:
- The benefits of running a standard, modern platform across infrastructure locations.
- The technical and economic realities of operating public cloud, multi-cloud, and Kubernetes environments.
- The relationship between VMs, containers, and cloud instances, and how to best utilize them.
- How a cloud native transformation can help empower developers and create a meaningful connection between infrastructure and business objectives.
