Meet VMware at HPE Discover – IT’S SO GOOD TO BE BACK!

For those that have made the trek to Las Vegas this week, come see VMware (Booth 322) at the HPE Discover 2022 event IRL (In Real Life). Let’s face it, over the two and a half years, we have all gotten burnt out on virtual conferences and summits, so it very exciting to be able to meet face to face with customers, partners, analysts and bloggers. VMware is a platinum sponsor of the event and will be pulling out all the stops highlighting our latest multi-Cloud offerings, including the complete spectrum of joint VMware, HPE and NVIDIA solutions to help customers accelerate their AI and modernization initiatives.   

There are several VMware led breakout sessions plus a number of joint presentations being led by HPE and VMware technical personnel. Of course, there are lots of hands on-labs, demonstrations and a presence within the NVIDIA AI Pavilion (Booth 202) where we will be highlighting the latest integration with VMware Cloud Foundation and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise Suite. 

Just a couple of the highlighted sessions to pay particular attention to:
