Let’s Talk About Snapshots! (Snapshots Explained) VMTN2646BCN

I had the distinct privilege of participating in the VMware Explore event in Barcelona, where I contributed to a VMTN session. This opportunity was not only a tremendous honor but also a very new experience for me, as it involved standing and facing the public.

VMware’s top executives revealed how the company is aiding clients and partners in adopting a strategically sound, cloud-intelligent approach to multi-cloud environments and digital overhaul.

Addressing the challenges posed by general AI, VMware introduced ‘Private AI’ as a solution. This architectural strategy strikes a balance between harnessing AI’s commercial benefits and meeting organizational privacy and compliance demands. VMware, in collaboration with leading partners like IBM, Intel, and NVIDIA, is making Private AI accessible to enterprises, offering an enlarged ecosystem that provides greater flexibility and options to customers and partners.

Data stands as the cornerstone of AI advancements. In a significant move, VMware, along with Google Cloud, announced a deepened partnership to bring Google Cloud’s AlloyDB Omni to VMware Cloud Foundation, initially focusing on on-premises private clouds. This collaboration allows for the modernization of existing databases and the creation of cutting-edge AI applications using this enterprise-grade, PostgreSQL-compatible database.

The VMware Explore 2023 Barcelona General Session featured Raghu Raghuram on the main stage, highlighting these developments.

Furthermore, VMware unveiled new enhancements, global outreach, and ecosystem solutions aimed at bolstering VMware Sovereign Cloud partners. These initiatives are designed to provide customers with increased agility, enhanced resilience, and accelerated innovation.

Setting the tone for the day’s showcase of technological innovations, VMware’s cloud management business group leaders shared the latest breakthroughs in cloud computing, applications, edge technology, and AI.
