VMware Partnership Makes ‘Apex Even More Powerful’
Dell Technologies and VMware have been jointly creating market-leading solutions like VXRail for years. Although Dell is spinning off its 81-percent stake in VMware later this year, the two companies have agreed to a five-year commercial agreement to keep in-tact its joint go-to-market and innovation strategies, which includes Apex.
“We’re working with our VMware team of how we can integrate across both VMware and Dell more of our combined services and capabilities and offers to make Apex even more powerful for our customers,” said Clarke.
At Dell Technologies World 2021 this week, both top executives from VMware and Dell doubled down on their commitment to each over in the years ahead. Clarke said the “pipeline is rich” ahead for VMware and Dell around revenue growth, joint engineering and channel partner synergies.
“The pipeline is rich with future opportunities -- whether we look at what’s happening at the edge, whether we look at what’s happening with 5G and what could be built out in a private 5G network,” said Clarke. “The work that we’re doing together on the next generation data center and composability, our teams are deeply engaged on the next generation a wave of technologies. So there’s equal, if not more, opportunities with partners going forward than we demonstrated to date. I’m pretty excited about that.”
