Customers and partners driving new VMware Cloud updates

"We are very focused on doing a significant amount of co-innovation with our customers," Wolf told ZDNet. "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 this week announced a handful of advancements to VMware Cloud that company CTO Chris Wolf said have been driven by its customers and partner ecosystem.

Touted by the company as furthering its vision for delivering the foundation of its customers' and partners' digital transformation, cloud advancements include updates to VMware Cloud Foundation, VMware vCloud Director, and CloudHealth by VMware, and increased access to Cloud Foundation-based services via new VMware Cloud on AWS regions in Canada, Paris, and Singapore.
