This is a very exciting time for us at VMware, especially in the Cloud Provider Program. I am elated to say there are over 34 sessions that are tied to VMware Cloud Providers at VMworld 2018 – we are only publishing the sessions that are allowed currently…
I believe this is the most we’ve ever had at a VMworld. This signifies the importance of our Cloud Providers to VMware and our channel partners. As many of you have experienced, we are in a significant growth space and these sessions are very important for us to showcase what VMware is delivering around Cloud Providers. Moreover, this is a very important venue for us to present our current and future investments in VCPP.
I was honored when two of my sessions were accepted a few months ago. While it’s a little stressful on ensuring we are creating valuable content for our Cloud Service Providers, I am looking forward to presenting this material at VMworld.
Why VMware vSAN Is the Best Solution for Cloud Provider Environments [HCI1145BU]
The first session I have is with Greg Kaffenberger who is one of my esteemed colleagues inside of the VMware Cloud Provider team. We’ve noticed there’s some confusion around how vSAN works inside of our subscription model. Our goal is to demystify and showcase how vSAN is a sustainable operating model for Cloud Service Providers.
A lot of great content created that will be reviewed in this hour. Unfortunately, I wish we had more time – we’ve had to cut a lot but we will make the best of it!
Case Study: Hybrid Cloud with vCloud Extender from Customer to Provider [HYP1142BU]
I am co-presenting with Raffaelo Poltronieri at CloudItalia and we are stoked about speaking about vCloud Director Extender. While many of you have seen my Extender posts over the past year, we will be talking about some of the best practices and lessons learned with one of our strategic partners. Moreover, I will be discussing the goals going forward for our extensibility solutions – significant investment is going in to ensure we make it easy for our Cloud Providers to provide hybridity between on-prem and vCloud environments.
A few callouts I want to make as these are sessions you should not miss –
- Consuming Cloud Provider SD-WAN Services [BRE3038BU] – this reviews VeloCloud for VCPP and it is very top of mind for many providers. Providing seamless connectivity between sites in a secure, multi-tenant, architecture is critical.
- Delivering Custom Services Through vCloud Director Extensibility [HYP1803BU] – you will continue to see further development in UI Extensibility inside of vCloud Director. Milko and Martin will do a great job discussing what’s possible inside of the new vCD H5 UI.
- Introducing VMware Cloud Provider Pod [HYP1499BU] – I can’t speak much about this right now, but check out what Wade Holmes and Yves Sandfort will be presenting. This is a new initiative and we’d love to get feedback from our Cloud Providers.
Honestly, they are all awesome. I was going to continue to list more, but there’s some valuable content being created by amazing leaders in this organization.
I will be at VMworld Saturday to Thursday – please reach out if ever want to talk about any of our solutions!
See you there,
