This week’s launch by VMware of its vSphere 8 enterprise workload platform has received a firm thumbs up from a host of companies including AMD, Dell Technologies, HPE, NVIDIA, Intel and Lenovo.
Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, data centre solutions group at AMD, said, “modern enterprise workloads are evolving to become more cloud-like and distributed across multiple systems. VMware is helping customers deliver infrastructure services that support this evolution.”
“AI and Zero Trust security are pushing the boundaries of computing and networking for enterprise data centres,” said Manuvir Das, head of enterprise computing at NVIDIA. “VMware vSphere 8 on NVIDIA BlueField DPUs will boost infrastructure security, offload infrastructure services and free computing resources — all to enable enterprises’ intelligence factories.”
Meanwhile, Patty Kummrow, corporate vice president and general manager of Intel’s Ethernet products group said, the company’s “collaboration on VMware vSphere 8, the enterprise workload platform, brings the additional performance and security benefits of network accelerated cloud infrastructure to an extended community of enterprise customers.”
