The VMware Cross-Cloud services vision and portfolio are ambitious. So was the software-defined data center. The DNA and resources to deliver what today’s cloud-adopting customers need are the same.

Keith Townsend of The CTO Advisor recently joined Vittorio Viarengo, VP of VMware Cross-Cloud Services, at VMware Explore 2022 in San Francisco to get both the marketing and engineering perspective on what’s now available.

Their wide-ranging conversation, which opened with a mutual affinity for RVs, spanned:

  • What Cross-Cloud services means for enterprises (spoiler alert: they can now build, manage, run, secure and access any application across any cloud)
  • The importance of owing the operator experience
  • Three areas providing tremendous value to customers already—VMware Cloud for multi-cloud platform agility, VMware Aria for unified cloud management, and VMware Tanzu for faster cloud native development and operations
  • Making it real with the common object model of VMware Aria
