Want to migrate applications to the cloud by leveraging AWS public cloud? Looking to differentiate your business through application transformation? Then check out the VMware sessions and talks at AWS re:Invent, which takes place in Las Vegas Nov. 26 – 30.


VMware will have a strong presence at AWS re:Invent to showcase  best-in-class solutions and expertise that will help you unlock the potential behind a hybrid cloud. Our theme for the show is multi-cloud Kubernetes for enterprises, and you’ll see this theme reinforced in our sessions, talks, and demos. Our session on application portability with Kubernetes (CMP310-S), for instance, shows you how to implement a hybrid cloud strategy. The session demonstrates how you can easily port an application running on Kubernetes in your data center  to a Kubernetes cluster managed by VMware Cloud PKS running natively on AWS. Add the Application Portability with Kubernetes session, Nov 27, 12:15 to 1:15 to your schedule.


Hear from experts at our theater sessions at the VMware booth (#2201) and at the VMware {Code} booth (#Q505) in Aria. We will be demonstrating our VMware PKS and VMware Cloud PKS solutions.


Monitor cloud native environments and Kubernetes clusters and get custom metrics and analytics in real time with Wavefront. Visit the VMware Wavefront booth (#329) to see how  millions of data points can help you improve observability, make more informed decisions, and deliver better outcomes.


We will have focused technical talks delivered by VMware experts and partners scheduled every half hour at the VMware booth. Our 15-minute talks are focused on topics such as migrating large-scale workloads to AWS, implementing consistent networking and security from the data to the cloud, and implementing on-demand solutions for disaster recovery.
