Partner Sessions:

Improve Workload Performance With Optimized Stacks From Intel and VMware [OSM2655USS]

Notice: This is a sponsored session. When you attend a sponsored session at VMware Explore, your attendee information will be shared with the presenting sponsor. You may opt-in to receive communications directly from that sponsor and will be subject to their communications and privacy policy.

Cloud service providers offer an ever-growing number of instance types. But are you getting the most benefit from the instance you’ve selected? Workload performance depends not just on the instance but also on the software’s ability to utilize underlying features in the CPUs that power it. With open-source software, compiling and configuring can leave questions about how best to tune the software for a target instance. There are often many competing pre-compiled packages available to choose from. Join Intel and VMware Bitnami to discuss new optimized stacks for popular workloads that remove the guesswork, enabling available platform features by default. VMware’s Bitnami technologies package these stacks to support a variety of environments and deployment models, with frequent updates to the latest version of the application and its components.
