Event SD-WAN

Where’s the Beef? Your Roadmap to VMworld and SD-WAN

As with so many other events and businesses this year, VMworld has gone virtual. What does this mean for you? Our hope is that you’ll have more choice in the content you watch, more opportunities to engage with our team, and a better experience overall. Registration is free this year at the General pass level. There is also Premier pass option for $299 that provides access to limited capacity sessions and 1:1 consultations with experts. Register here!

VMworld US and VMworld Europe have been merged into one comprehensive event, scheduled for September 29 – October 1 with short scheduled sessions delivered on a “follow the sun” model across all worldwide geographies and a host of in-depth sessions delivered on-demand. We have also offered a host of ancillary activities that include hands on labs (HOLs) and live roundtable sessions with experts. Below is a comprehensive view of what will be available from the VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud business unit. Take a look and start planning your itinerary!

In answer to the 1984 Wendy’s commercial, “Where’s the beef?”:

Live Demonstrations

What speaks louder than words? A demo. We can talk about the benefits you’d get from our solution all day long (and will if you let us), but getting a visual walk-through of what SD-WAN is capable of will make you a believer. If you’ve never seen VMware SD-WAN in action, or even if you have and you want to see what’s new, come by the Solutions Showcase and one of our friendly and knowledgeable experts will gladly walk you through a host of demos that include:

  • Analytics and Visibility with Edge Intelligence
  • VMware SD-WAN with Equinix Network Edge
  • Multi-Cloud Interconnect
  • VMware SD-WAN Zero-Touch Deployment


Expert Roundtables

Breakout sessions and demos will give you two great insights into SD-WAN, but if you want to ask your questions and drill down into specifics, attend a Meet the Expert session. These sessions are small and intimate, allowing you to connect closely with our solution matter experts and get all your questions answered.
