Pat Glasinger, CEO of VMware, opened the annual conference of the company VMware 2020, which was held digitally this year with the participation of tens of thousands of computer experts, developers and IT managers from dozens of countries. In his remarks, Glasinger noted: “2020 was exceptionally challenging A domain in our lives. Digital innovation is at the heart of this rethinking in every field. Our strategy is now proving itself and aims to run any app in any cloud and on any device
“VMware helps companies in every field address these new challenges, including: its zoom We help deploy its services to more and more users and modernity that develops a vaccine against the corona virus. VMware’s systems also help Feeding America deliver food to 53 million needy people in the US and perform Matching demand with food suppliers. “
According to Pat Glasinger, VMware’s strategy is built on five foundations that envelop and support the customer’s applications: a multi-cloud environment, application modernization tools, a work environment for distributed employees, internal security, and virtual networks in the cloud. Glasinger has also unveiled a collaboration agreement between VMware and NVIDIA that will bring the AI world to any organization and he says will lead to the democratization of one of the most powerful technologies in the world today.
Among the prominent announcements of the conference
The Monterey project addresses the new demands of the next generation of applications that include artificial intelligence, machine learning and 5G. For the purpose of the project, VMware is collaborating with industry partners to develop solutions based on the Monterey project, including: Intel, Anvidia and Pensando, as well as with the systems companies Dell, Lenovo and HPE. The Monterey project will help organizations cope with an increasingly complex application environment that consumes increasing processing resources (CPU).
Support for SmartNICs – VMware continues to develop the Cloud Foundation environment (which includes vSphere, vSAN and NSX) that will include support for SmartNIC technology (also known as DPU – Data Processing Unit) – a new architecture component that lowers processing tasks typically performed by the server processor. By supporting SmartNICs, VMware Cloud Foundation will continue to process virtualization in the server processor while network, storage, and I / O tasks will be processed in the new SmartNIC processor.
VMware will redesign the Cloud Foundation architecture to enable server disassembly, including expanding support for dedicated physical servers (bare metal). This will allow an application running on one physical server to consume acceleration hardware resources FPGAs from other physical servers. In addition, it will allow dynamic access to physical resources based on policies or through programming interfaces (APIs) tailored to the needs of the application. Because ESXi runs on SmartNIC, organizations will be able to use a single management environment to manage their entire computing infrastructure, whether virtual or based on bare metal physical servers.
Security – Through the Monterey project, VMware will be able to continue to realize its internal security vision. Each SmartNIC component can run a full firewall and a security package with advanced capabilities. Because it will run on the NIC rather than the host server, it will be possible to deploy thousands of small firewalls and automatically direct them to secure the services of specific applications that make up the application – and wrap each service in smart protections that will protect the specifics’ weaknesses. This will allow for the construction of custom security that is automatically targeted to tens of thousands of application services.
VMware has unveiled its future solutions for employees that will provide them with exceptional work experiences, end-to-end Zero Trust security controls and user-friendly management capabilities. The integrated solution includes the following technologies: Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) The Digital Workspace workspace and endpoint security capabilities. The integrated solution will help IT managers better manage and secure access to any application, in any cloud, from any device and at the same time provide a comfortable, secure and high-performance user experience for distributed employees.
VMware also announces a partnership with GitLab, the DevOps platform offered as a single application. The companies have committed to unite the app developers and the operating teams around one common goal and that is to speed up the product release round and improve their level of security. For this purpose, the two companies help customers streamline the development processes in the pipeline and consistently accelerate migration to production.
