Pat Gelsinger On VMware’s ‘Radical’ Security Plan And Andy Jassy ‘Bro Hugs’

“Five years ago, I stood on stage and said, ‘If you use Amazon, you’re stupid.’ And Andy [Jassy] would stand on stage and say, ‘If you run a data center, you’re stupid.’ Now we’re doing bro hugs at re:Invent on stage and declaring a joint, hybrid future,” said VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger in an interview with CRN.

Talk about AWS Outposts and your relationship with AWS Andy Jassy?

As we go on to Outposts, we clearly are saying, ‘Hey this is the next phase of our relationship.’ I like to joke about the fact that, five years ago, I stood on stage and said, ‘If you use Amazon, you’re stupid.’ And Andy [Jassy] would stand on stage and say, ‘If you run a data center, you’re stupid.’ Now we’re doing bro hugs at the Re:Invent stage and declaring a joint, hybrid future. We’ve come a long way. And now everybody – Google, Amazon, Microsoft, etc. – is talking about the hybrid future. The hybrid future is exactly why IBM spent $34 billion to buy Red Hat when they position it. Everybody agrees. VMware and our partner community are now uniquely enabled to deliver that, and Outposts is another vehicle to accomplish that.
