How does Tanzu play a role in the VMware-Dell innovation roadmap ahead?

The very first product we released with Tanzu, VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) Tanzu, that is the same software that we use when we build up the large hyper-converged infrastructure products with Dell. You can see that we have an immediate focus on that on-premise, hybrid story. We will be focusing on scaling that down to be more appropriate at the VxRail level as well. This is going to be a new and important area where you’re going to see a common management approach being taken across my cloud-native applications when they run in the cloud, when they run in a hybrid cloud and then when they run at this wide edge.

Where VMware and Dell are in a unique position is the ability to stich those things together at the wide edge. Because in many cases the ability to have insight into the infrastructure layers of the software and the application layer of the software running on top of Kubernetes or orchestrated by Kubernetes, that’s the unique combination we can bring to bear from a performance and security point of view. That alignment around HCI is going to be very important. I think wide edge is going to be a hot new area for Kubernetes and for containers in general.
