  • Can VMware Shops Easily Adopt Multiple Public Clouds? Let’s Discuss. Recorded: Nov 24 2020 50 mins
    Duan van der Westhuizen, SVP of Product & Marketing, Faction
    VMware Cloud on AWS was the first cloud-based offering for VMware customers looking to seamlessly adopt public clouds, but it is no longer the only option. Offers like Azure VMware Services, Google Cloud VMware Engine, and Oracle Cloud VMware Cloud Solution have expanded the reach from the on-premises datacenter to a global multi-cloud network of providers and regions. Is your organization ready to embrace this new scope in cloud environments and capabilities?

    In this webinar, we help you understand the considerations you should take note of before diving in head first:

    ● Data Gravity and its effect on your future flexibility and cloud optionality
    ● Cloud lock-in and what it means to your business
    ● VMware as the central platform that enables true private, hybrid, and multi-cloud
    ● How your business can get a competitive edge by using more than one cloud at a time
    ● Driving a 10x savings in data costs while using the best tools from your cloud of choice
    ● How does this all work? The fundamentals of multi-cloud networking
  • Not Every Cloud is Created Equal: Winning with a Multi-Cloud Strategy Recorded: Nov 10 2020 60 mins

Learn how these capabilities are growing further apart over time, and why your teams will want the flexibility of choosing the right cloud for the job at the right time. During this session we will cover:

    • Differences in hardware, networking, and other basic elements between clouds
    • Differences in services used for things like IoT, AI/ML, and containers & serverless computing
    • How data gravity limits multi-cloud use and how to overcome it
    • How data, billing, and governance interact

    Using specific details drawn from implementing real-world multi-cloud architectures that truly power great outcomes for business, hear Faction’s “lessons learned” from working with large enterprises tackling difficult multi-cloud problems in areas like biotech and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) development.
