Call it a series of acquisitions, partnerships, and integrations, all aimed at helping VMware customers transition to the cloud—while keeping them in VMware’s warm embrace.

Our topic today is VMworld 2020 and the most interesting announcements and presentations from VMware and folks in the VMware ecosystem that came out during the virtual event.

We conclude today’s episode with Day Two Cloud’s very first Tech Byte, a 15-minute sponsored conversation we had with Mike Wookey, CTO and VP of Cloud Management at VMware where we get real with AI and ML, because VMware is actually doing something with artificial intelligence for vSAN environments. Mike explains in the Tech Byte at the conclusion of the episode.
