VMware Explore Is on the Horizon

Set your sights higher. 4 days. Hundreds of sessions. Endless ideas.

Control Costs, Gain Flexibility with Software-Defined Edge

The next wave of digital transformation happens outside the data center. Scale opportunity with programmable compute and connectivity, everywhere you need it.

Right-Sized Infrastructure: Edge Compute

Gain a flexible, automated compute infrastructure with VMware software-defined edge. Optimize workloads and streamline operations to manage hundreds or thousands of heterogeneous edge sites at scale.

Zero-Touch Orchestration: VeloCloud

Enable zero-touch provisioning and management of software-defined edge resources. Automatically provision the right resources for each workload to meet real-time application requirements.

Programmable Network: Telco Cloud

Discover a programmable network that sets the foundation for a software-defined edge. Expose varying connectivity resources to edge locations to allow apps to program the right services at the right times.

Advantages of an Empowered Edge

Competitive Advantage

Transform business operations with a flexible and programmable edge that lets you apply next-gen innovations, like real-time AI decision-making, computer vision, and extended reality wherever you need them.

Reduced Costs

By automatically optimizing edge resources,— running compute infrastructure and SD-WAN connectivity on the same edge platforms—, you can reduce both CapEx and OpEx.

Improved Stability and Performance

Deploy next-gen edge applications with confidence, knowing that you can assure nonstop connectivity, quality, and performance to keep critical applications online and tailored to your needs.

Increased Business Focus

Offload complexity of next-gen edge environments - use a Lean IT model at edge locations and get connectivity, compute, and other managed edge services under a single monthly bill from your service provider.

Enhanced Visibility and Troubleshooting

Better understand how applications behave and dynamically enforce policy across all components so you can easily detect and remediate problems.

Growth of Software-Defined Edge

Accelerate your edge transformation journey with VMware software-defined edge. Our virtualization and automation have been increasing data center operational efficiencies for more than 20 years. We’re bringing that same expertise to the edge, where doing more with less matters the most.
