Open Source: A Key Ingredient to Success


Accelerate what’s possible: Register online for VMworld 2017 and download this brief to learn about the new Leading Digital Transformation track.

Open source components are part of practically every software product or service today; VMware products are no exception. Increasingly, IT departments are presented with many application rollout requests that include large open source components as part of the infrastructure on which they rely.

From OpenStack to Docker to Kubernetes and beyond, open source is a reality of the enterprise environment. VMware is investing in open source both as a user of many components and as a creator of many successful open source projects, such as Open vSwitch, Harbor, Clarity, and many more.

As part of the Leading Digital Transformation track at VMworld 2017 US, I plan to discuss the what, why, and how regarding VMware’s use of open source. I will share the company’s vision and strategy and why open source is critically important for our customers. I hope you will join me!
