The last few years have been an exciting time at VMware. In case you’ve been trapped in a cave trying to recreate Marvel’s Iron Man movie, I’ll first provide an overview of VMware Cloud on AWSTM and the VMware strategy.This strategy has aligned both of these “tech giants” with common technical and commercial goals and has opened up a world of new possibilities to both Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware, and, most importantly, customers and partners

NVIDIA Providing Free GPU Virtualization Software Access for Remote Workers

Article | March 24, 2020

To support companies needing quick setup and support for remote workers, NVIDIA is expanding their free, 90-day virtual GPU software evaluation from 128 to 500 licenses. With vGPU software licenses, companies can use their on-premises NVIDIA GPUs to provide accelerated virtual infrastructure so people can work and collaborate from anywhere. Companies can also temporarily repurpose NVIDIA GPUs being used on other projects to support their remote workers. NVIDIA offers a variety of customized vGPU software to meet diverse workplace needs; all three tiers of the company’s specialized vGPU software are available through the expanded free licensing. In addition to providing high performance and reducing latency for remote workers, NVIDIA vGPU software ensures protection for sensitive data and digital assets, which remain in the data center and aren’t saved to local client devices. This is an important security requirement for remote work across many industries, including visual effects and design, as well as for research and development.

VMware embraces Kubernetes with vSphere 7

Article | March 10, 2020

VMware has added Kubernetes support to run containers and virtual machines simultaneously in the new vSphere release. The virtualization giant can now also offer a single management domain that covers containers and VMs in the hybrid cloud. vSphere 7, launched today, represents the first fruits of the company’s Project Pacific. Project Pacific is in turn a component of VMware parent Dell’s wider Tanzu initiative to enable its overall product set to build, run, manage, connect and protect containerised workloads alongside virtual machine workloads. (Read more about Tanzu deliverables, in a Dell blog.) Deepak Patil, SVP and GM for cloud platforms and solutions at Dell Technologies, provided a quote: “As organisations look to solve for managing their private clouds seamlessly with multiple public clouds, we’re now able to extend our capabilities to both VMs and containers with a single hybrid cloud platform.

Will VMware's New License Fees Trigger Rush to the Cloud?

Article | February 20, 2020

With chip makers packing more processing power into CPUs, a leading maker of virtualization software is overhauling its prices significantly to reflect the development. Will VMware’s new fees push enterprise users into the cloud? It’s a reckoning that IT executives will be forced to consider come April. That’s when the company’s new fee structure kicks in for hypervisor products that run multiple operating systems on a single piece of silicon. Some multinationals could face significant price increases under the new structure. The Dell EMC subsidiary changed license fees for its Vsphere hypervisor kit. Instead of charging per CPU socket for motherboard connections, it will now base its fee on the number of cores in the CPU.
