The stars of stars at the show of shows: HPE Sponsor sessions at VMworld

By Bernadina Mickey

Time to face facts. There’s just not enough time for mere mortals to attend all the sessions at events like VMworld. So you have three choices:

  • Work at gaining super-powers between now and the event (August 26 – 30)VMworld general photo 4.jpg
  • Try to attend them all, knowing you won’t be able to succeed and will probably miss a bunch that would have been perfect for you
  • Make a list of the best and most valuable sessions, with the five HPE Sponsor sessions at or near the top 

I’d like to suggest #3 as your most realistic and rewarding option.    

Why HPE?

HPE sessions are your best choice because HPE and VMware are totally in sync.

  • HPE has 500,000+ VMware licenses, making us the global leader in VMware-based server virtualization solutions
  • The HPE – VMware alliance has an 18+ year track record of delivering game-changing results to our shared customers worldwide
  • We continue to collaborate to revolutionize virtualization economics and create new efficiencies for our clients with the industry’s most complete portfolio of tightly integrated and jointly engineered systems
  • Our solutions are developed, tested, and proven jointly. They work right from Day 1 and deliver the results you can rely on day after day. 

Why settle for less?

Our five Sponsor sessions at VMworld will focus on some of the most important challenges you face and the most results-driven solutions we provide:
