"In our Office of the CTO, we spend a lot of time engaging with our customers and our customer leaders to understand: Are we bringing the right technologies to market for their needs? Is the timing right? Where are some gaps that we need to solve? So these [enhancements] are in direct response to that." VMware announced VMware Cloud Foundation 3.7 is expected to be available on Dell EMC VxRail in VMware's Q1FY20."If you think about Cloud Foundation in general, I think that one of the problems that every IT organisation has to solve is standing up infrastructure for their applications," Wolf explained.
