The ecosystem of frameworks and tools in the container space is rapidly evolving. Navigating this dynamic landscape and choosing the right solution for your IT infrastructure can be intimidating and challenging. A well-architected container infrastructure solution is critical for promoting developer productivity and driving business agility. However, critical enterprise requirements like security, visibility, management and governance must be established before operationalizing containers.

At this year’s VMworld US, we have an exciting lineup of sessions that will get you up to speed on best practices for adopting and deploying container infrastructure in multi-cloud environments. Whether you are a newcomer or an expert practitioner of container-based technologies, our VMworld events offer a broad range of learning opportunities to bolster your organizational needs.
