Competitive Advantage in the Multi-Cloud Era
Connecting People, Apps & Data to Propel your Business Forward

Join us as VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger discusses VMware’s industry perspective on digital business and the state of the cloud, as well as how VMware is empowering its customers to innovate in this new era of multiple clouds.

Cloud has been the single most transformative phenomenon in technology over the past decade. It has ushered in an era of nearly unlimited choice for IT professionals, developers and business decision makers. But the problem today is there is an increasing number of public cloud choices. This has created silos, internal and external, which generates a new set of problems. In this world of many different clouds, a business’s apps will either reside in one of them permanently, or span many clouds dynamically. Networking and security in the cloud era is teeming with new opportunities, new challenges and of course the potential for chaos – created from a lack of consistent security and compliance across clouds.

A software-defined, network fabric that spans many clouds is the foundation on which many multi-cloud security and management services are built. One key benefit to a distributed, virtualized multi-cloud network is that customers can easily move workloads from a private data center to a public cloud or between clouds, and preserve existing network and security settings. Innovations in network virtualization, cloud-native apps, cloud management and digital workspaces have made this multi-cloud revolution possible. And hyper-converged Infrastructure has revolutionized private cloud deployment. The end-game is to propel businesses forward connecting people, apps, data and devices all the way to IoT.

You are not alone in this journey. Whether you are a CxO, business leader, IT admin, network engineer, software developer, cloud architect or technologist, or on the DevOps team, you will find something of great interest in the VMworld 2016 general sessions. We will demonstrate deep compatibility between clouds and together with our partner ecosystem, provide a simplified end-user experience that unifies access to all apps, no matter where they reside or run. Hear from customers who are already successfully leading this transformation and from our executive team, who are committed to helping you succeed.

Seeing and Creating the Unimaginable

We are now discovering and even inventing the unimaginable every day. Satellites are locating lost cities, 3D printers are creating entire robots, synthetic biology is re-envisioning the future of space travel. Leveraging new technologies, extraordinary explorers of our time are venturing to the outer limits of their imaginations. Join us for an awe-inspiring journey into their both unimaginable and very real worlds.

Sarah Parcak Sarah Parcak
Satellite Archaeologist, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Winner of the TED Prize for 2016


Like a space age Indiana Jones, Sarah uses satellite imagery to locate lost ancient sites. Winner of the prestigious 2016 TED Prize, she is making civilization’s invisible history truly visible and offering new understandings of our past. Her multi-disciplinary team is dedicated to identifying and protecting the world’s cultural heritage one extraordinary site at a time.

Daniela Rus Daniela Rus
Director, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL)
MIT


Daniela’s research encompasses distributed robotics, mobile computing and programmable matter. At CSAIL she has led groundbreaking research projects in the areas of transportation, security, environmental monitoring, underwater exploration and agriculture. Her recent work with printable robots is both profound in its potential impact and really fun to witness first hand.

Neri Oxman Neri Oxman
Director, Mediated Matter Research Group
MIT Media Lab


Neri envisions and creates dramatic interactions between digital fabrication technology and the biological world. Incorporating computational design, additive manufacturing, materials engineering and synthetic biology, and her lab’s mind-bending products represent an unprecedented symbiosis of design and nature.
