Building a Secure, Automated Multi-Cloud Foundation 
by VMware Cloud Foundation and Tanzu

In the current hybrid-cloud environment, companies have more instances in different locations – be it in the cloud, on-premises, at the edge, or with service providers. Organizations now strive to evolve their platforms so they can support not only existing workloads but also modern workloads, whilst avoiding IT operational shortages.

VMware has delivered what companies call a “digital foundation” for decades. Highly trusted by many enterprises, it accelerates productivity with greater agility, enabling development and operations teams to work together in new ways that deliver transformative business results.

  • Is modernizing application portfolios currently a priority for organizations? How do organizations deliver applications to the business faster? 
  • Who is adopting Kubernetes and other cloud-native technology?
  • What are the best ways of simplifying multi-cloud operations while freeing developers to move faster with easy access to the right resources?
