Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is the key to future-proofing the cornerstone of enterprise digital transformation. In today’s app driven world, it provides the flexibility and scalability needed to support the complex mix of legacy, and cloud native applications, that users demand, and large organizations have to provide. This is why we are seeing unprecedented adoption for VMware vSAN and VMware Cloud Foundation, as customers look to build a platform for the future where IT is even more agile and responsive.
To that end, at VMworld 2019 Europe, we are running over 50 sessions dedicated to providing education, insight and thought leadership on this critical topic. Here’s our recommendations for the must-attend sessions that can help you understand how HCI can help you achieve your IT transformation goals. Don’t forget you can book these sessions online.

Lee Dilworth, Chief Technologist for Storage and Availability in EMEA for VMware, will lead a selection of customers in a discussion on what they’ve learnt from deploying HCI, from the good and the bad to the ugly. What are the use cases, benefits, and potential pitfalls? Should you buy an appliance or deploy software? Who deploys and operates it—the virtual admin, storage admin, or someone else—and what organizational changes are required? This is the session to attend to be better prepared for the HCI wave.
VMware Cloud Foundation: Strategy, Capabilities, and Technology Direction [HBI1432BE]
As the industry goes through dramatic changes, rapid delivery of applications and services is the key business differentiator.

That’s where VMware Cloud Foundation comes in by delivering a complete private and hybrid cloud. VMware’s Mark Chuang and Jayanta Dey will cover the capabilities of VMware Cloud Foundation today, plus our strategy and technology evolution to support multiple application types spanning multiple data centres or hybrid clouds. This is a session for anyone who wants to move beyond VMware vSphere to a complete hybrid cloud.
