Pat Gelsinger On Kubernetes, Acquisitions And Bitcoin
VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger gave a bullish keynote on Monday in front of tens-of-thousands around the company’s recent acquisitions of Pivotal Software and Carbon Black, as well as new Kubernetes solutions.
“With Project Pacific, we are bringing the largest infrastructure community, the largest set of operators, the largest set of customers directly to the Kubernetes,” said Gelsinger. “We will be the leading enabler of Kubernetes.”
Additionally, VMware’s CEO addressed how technology is sometimes negatively being leveraged. “Ninety-five-plus percent of [Bitcoin] uses are illicit and criminal. It is a climate crisis consuming almost a household of energy for every single entry. Bitcoin today is not okay,” said Gelsinger.
