VMware Cloud Foundation

Last week VMware announced general availability of VMware Cloud Foundation 3.8. This newest release is packed with new capabilities that make Cloud Foundation easier to deploy, manage and automate. VMware Cloud Foundation is an integrated software stack that bundles compute virtualization (VMware vSphere), storage virtualization (VMware vSAN), network virtualization (VMware NSX), and cloud management and monitoring (VMware vRealize Suite) into a single platform that can be deployed on premises as a private cloud or run as a service within a public cloud.

This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Kevin Tebear and Heath Johnson to take a closer look at VMware Cloud Foundation and what’s new in 3.8 Tweet your Cloud Foundation questions\comments to SDDCCommander.

Multi and mega clouds, containers and microservices, hyper-converged infrastructure, network micro-segmentation, are all the new wave of technology; With DevOps, AI and machine learning use cases changing not only the way we implement but the way we manage IT. In this session we examine this shifting IT landscape, and discuss trends for personal tooling – how can we position ourselves to excel in this new landscape? What does the datacenter of the future look like, and what sort of people will it need?
