VMworld 2020: Different format. Same exceptional content.

Like just about every other tech company, VMware is going virtual with VMworld 2020, its major customer event, scheduled from September 29 – October 1. Faced with the on-going pandemic, there wasn’t much of a choice.

 HPE is a VMworld Global Diamond Sponsor

That’s why HPE is so thrilled to participate in the event as a Global Diamond Sponsor. We have a great story to tell – one that perfectly complements the VMware solution narrative in so many areas. Specifically, HPE has a number of solutions to help organizations bridge to new ways of working, and accelerate transformation by bringing the cloud experience to all apps and data, and doing so using an as-a-service model that preserves capital. These solutions fall into the following categories:

  • Reimagining Work (Digital Workspace) - HPE helps you optimize and deploy your Digital Workspace solutions for VMware environments. You and your employees enjoy a faster and superior VDI and remote work experience. In these times, when work from home is often the rule rather than the exception, this can make a major difference. Note that this topic will be the subject of an HPE video available at the event.  
  • Empowering your data across clouds - HPE enables Public Cloud for virtual workloads by facilitating / enabling the ability to migrate data easily, plus back up and recover data.
  • Modernizing with a Distributed HCI Architecture – See how this move can deliver the fastest VMware virtual workload performance. Note: a sponsor video on this topic will be available at the event.  
  • HPE Cloud Services for VMware Environments – These solutions simplify the hybrid cloud journey, modernize existing on-premises workloads, and integrate with the public cloud for a consistent software defined experience. We also make these cloud solutions available using as-a-service models like HPE GreenLake that reduce CAPEX by up to 30% and improve time to market by 65%. We make digital transformation as easy (almost) as floating on a cloud.  A sponsor video on this topic will be available at the event.

Now presenting ….

In addition to the sponsor videos, HPE is planning a number of presentations touching all of the key areas listed above. Currently, the presentation topics/titles include:

  • Top vSphere best practices
  • Adapting Your Business for Digital Working with HPE and VMware
  • Explore What’s Next for Hyperconverged Infrastructure with HPE
  • Cloud Services for VMware Environments
  • Next generation applications / containers

Presentation formats range from 60-minute on-demand sessions to 20-minute recorded sessions with live Q&A to panel discussion. Look for more details on all of these sessions as we get closer to the event.
