Creating A ‘Developer Friendly, Highly-Automated, Intelligent And Efficient Cloud Architecture’

At the core, we’re combining the innovations of Dell EMC, VMware and Pivotal to create a developer friendly, highly-automated, intelligent and efficient cloud architecture. VMware brings the power of virtualizing all your infrastructure, including the network, and delivering a software-defined future from the edge to the core to multi-cloud. We’re partnering with all of the public clouds. We’re also fully embracing Kubernetes. This is important because application, data and workloads must move back and forward dynamically in an increasingly distributed network, including the explosion in the edge and the Internet of Things. Performance, security, latency, regulations, costs will demand this ability to move back and forth. Pivotal is fast becoming the leading platform for developing applications in this multi-cloud world. Boomi is leading with cloud data integration.

‘Embracing As-A-Service From The PC To The Data Center And Beyond’
