This is an open-mic panel session with the Global Cloud Practice VMware Certified Design Experts, who will answer advanced- and expert-level questions about cloud architecture and software-defined design.
Enterprises globally are enthusiastically embracing the hybrid cloud as both a way of reducing costs and improving the quality of service IT provides to its end customers. To achieve this, enterprises are looking to VMware and the VMware Cloud Provider Program to help them run in a hybrid cloud model. Participants in this session will leave with a technical understanding of how to leverage the hybrid cloud to gain benefits of geographic diversity and agile scaling for growth, while continuing to use the tools they have already invested in.
