The year 2020 was chaotic, but with chaos comes opportunity. The era of multi-cloud has arrived more rapidly than some anticipated, which presents a tremendous opportunity for organizations to embrace change that can transform how they deliver IT and revolutionize their business.
With rapidly evolving customer and industry pressures, IT leaders need to accelerate innovation and pivot their strategy as needed to accommodate market demands. VMware is laser-focused on helping our customers navigate these challenges in the multi-cloud world, which is why we announced the launch of VMware Cloud Universal in March of 2021– a flexible subscription for multi-cloud that simplifies the purchase and consumption of VMware infrastructure and management services.
Our latest release ahead of VMworld 2021 expands on the capabilities of VMware Cloud Universal by delivering enhanced features and choices to help our customers successfully execute on their multi-cloud strategy. In this blog, we will highlight what’s new in our latest release and key learning opportunities at VMworld 2021.
