Servium is proud to have been an Enterprise Partner with VMware for 4 years. VMware is a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, and one of the largest and most prominent of our strategic vendor partners.
I have personally attended VMworld Europe for the last 3 years, which is hosted annually in Barcelona, as I feel that the event always creates a great opportunity to attend a number of engaging and enlightening keynote presentations from VMware’s senior executives, along with a multitude of other tier 1 vendors. This year over 10,000 people attended, so it is by no means a small event, and one I was privileged to participate in.
The key announcements that we were treated to were:-
VMware vSphere 6.5 aims to deliver a simplified customer experience with comprehensive built-in security and support for running modern, containerised applications in production environments.
VMware’s next release of Virtual SAN will include features designed to make it easier to use the hyper-converged software in remote offices and in all-flash nodes, and will enable it to serve as back-end storage for physical servers.
VMware Cloud Foundation
This is the unified Software-defined Datacentre (SDDC) platform that brings together VMware’s vSphere, vSAN and NSX into a natively integrated stack to deliver enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure for the private and public cloud.
vCloud & AWS
Due to launch in 2017, VMware Cloud on AWS is a vSphere-based cloud service. The new service will bring enterprise-class SDDC software to the AWS cloud. Customers will be able to run any application across vSphere-based private, public and hybrid cloud environments. It will be delivered and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically scalable service and customers will be able to leverage the global footprint and breadth of services from AWS.
