This year, VMware sponsored IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas as a Gold Sponsor. From the showroom floor to breakout sessions, the VMware presence throughout the week was strong. If you weren’t able to attend, here are a few key highlights from the event.


IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization

On the first day of InterConnect, IBM announced IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization, a new cloud-based solution that provides workload security for data and applications and automates reporting to assist with regulatory requirements. The solution is optimized for technology from Intel and HyTrust to simplify reporting demands for organizations in highly regulated industries and provide hardware-enhanced workload security. The solution runs on VMware Cloud Foundation on IBM Cloud, taking advantage of the infrastructure automation jointly developed by IBM and VMware.
