2. Best Practices for Cloud Financial Management

With dynamic growth spurts, billing scrutiny, and unpredictable cloud spend, organizations scaling cloud usage face various challenges when it comes to managing and optimizing their multicloud bills. As usage grows, these organizations need a holistic approach to managing and optimizing cloud costs without foregoing security and productivity.

Cloud financial management is a framework that enables organizations to optimize and control costs across multiple cloud platforms while leveraging the power and flexibility of cloud-based infrastructure. Attend our session on cloud financial management best practices where we’ll cover budgeting, forecasting, chargeback/showback, and more.

It’s hard to believe that CloudHealth has been part of the VMware family for almost two years – time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve since extended our hybrid and multicloud financial management, optimization, and governance capabilities to VMware vSphere and VMware Cloud on AWS. Cloudhealth serves as a critical value add to your VMware investments when it comes to your hybrid and multicloud management strategy.

5. Roundtable: Manage and Optimize Kubernetes Across a Multicloud Environment*

Kubernetes is an increasingly popular choice for operationalizing and scaling modern applications. However, many questions can come into play: How do we know how efficient Kubernetes is running? What are the cost implications of the YAML change we just made? Are costs being charged back to the business appropriately?

If you want answers to these questions, join us for our expert roundtable on how to manage and optimize Kubernetes across a multicloud environment.

Calling all MSPs! With MSPs on the frontlines of helping customers optimize and scale their hybrid and multicloud environments, the VMware MSP program is proving essential for MSPs looking to expand their managed services portfolio.

In this session, MSPs and other partners will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the program structure, benefits of participating, requirements to join, billing and terms of service, steps to integrate VMC on AWS and Cloud Director service into their existing portfolio of managed services, and anything else that might pertain to the MSP ecosystem.
