WATCH: CRN Gets Reaction To VMware’s Cloud Play At VMworld 2019

CRNtv digs into all of the VMware cloud news from VMworld 2019.

VMware isn’t the same company we first met in 1998. The company that was once focused on virtual machines has become laser-focused on the cloud.

“VMware is moving from what was a very traditional leadership and supplier and vendor in the IT community to really aggressively embracing cloud,” said Equinix CEO Charles Meyers.

It was a transformation on full display at VMworld 2019, where CEO Pat Gelsinger and his team unveiled a host of innovations that make it easier to build, run and manage applications across any environment.

“It’s about providing customers the ability to deploy applications where they want, where the business sees the need, and providing a common framework for operations and infrastructure around it,” said Milin Desai, general manager of cloud services at VMware.
