VMware COO Sanjay Poonen's Six Biggest Statements From CloudLIVE

‘Stay humble, stay hungry. I never want to lose the roots of that 18-year-old Sanjay who came to Boston Logan Airport and had 50 bucks in his pocket,’ says the chief operating officer of the Palo Alto, Calif., cloud computing and virtualization software and services company.

VMware wants to become the “world standard” for container and Kubernetes, according to Sanjay Poonen, chief operating officer of the Palo Alto, Calif., cloud computing and virtualization software and services company.

“Because we believe that we were instrumental in creating 70 million VMs (virtual machines) over the course of the last 20 years…we should play a meaningful role in the evolution of virtual machines to containers,” Poonen said today at the CloudLIVE conference hosted by CloudHealth by VMware at the new Encore Boston Harbor resort casino in Everett, Mass.

VMware is approaching the one-year anniversary next month of its reported $500 million acquisition of what was then CloudHealth Technologies, a Boston-based, public cloud management platform company.

CloudHealth by VMware now has $11.2 billion of cloud spending under management and close to 7,000 customers – more than double the amount when it was acquired -- and will finish the year with nearly 500 employees globally, according to CEO Tom Axbey.

Poonen -- who’s responsible for VMware’s worldwide sales, services, alliances, marketing and communications -- spoke to CloudHealth’s role in VMware’s SaaS transformation, VMware’s push into containers, Kubernetes and security, and his view of leadership among other topics during his “Embrace and Accelerate to the Cloud” talk at CloudLIVE.
