Are you attending VMworld 2019 in San Francisco, CA?  If so, I invite you to add Virtustream to your MUST SEE list of vendors. 

With so many vendors exhibiting at VMworld, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your busy schedule?  The team from VMblog is very much looking forward to meeting with the Virtustream team this year.  Virtustream is an enterprise-class cloud allowing companies to transform and move mission-critical applications to the cloud. They offer the reliability, security, compliance, and performance of a dedicated private cloud, combined with the flexibility, scalability, and economic benefits of a public cloud.  This is definitely a booth worth visiting. 

Read this exclusive pre-show interview with Virtustream to learn what they have planned for the upcoming VMworld 2019 event.


VMblog:  As a VMworld 2019 sponsor, how can people find you this year? 

Virtustream:  Virtustream's presence at VMworld 2019 is centered in booth #1827. It's easy to connect with us at the show, just go here to learn more. We're a VMworld Silver Sponsor for the 7th straight year and will have a 20 X 20 booth packed with great information and more than a dozen cloud experts to discuss accelerating the modernization of mission-critical applications in the cloud.  Stop by our booth for one of Virtustream's popular interactive whiteboard sessions, supported by a professional artist illustrating the following topics in real time:  

  • Azure VMware Solution by Virtustream: native VMware in Azure Cloud
  • Solving complex mission-critical enterprise application challenges while maximizing performance
  • Architecting enterprise-class infrastructure for mission-critical workloads
  • A ‘single hand to shake' for your enterprise mission-critical applications
  • Onboarding and migrating mission-critical workloads to the cloud
  • Leveraging cloud-based EHR to improve patient care 

VMblog:  Is there anything unique about this year's booth setup?  Do you have a theme? 

Virtustream:  In our booth, you'll learn about our expertise working with business-critical workloads and our ability to accelerate time-to-cloud. Virtustream provides services and solutions that expedite the modernization of mission-critical applications in a multi-cloud world. Our proven approach to planning, migrating, integrating, optimizing, and managing mission-critical enterprise workloads across multiple cloud platforms accelerates innovative enterprise application modernization journeys. 

VMblog:  Can you give readers a few reasons why your product or service is considered unique? 

Virtustream:  Virtustream is the name and mission-critical cloud solutions is our game. For enterprise-class customers looking to move their business-critical workloads to the cloud, like SAP applications or Epic's EHR platform, a stop by Virtustream's booth is a must. Our Virtustream Enterprise Cloud platform is purpose-built to address the availability and performance needs of mission-critical applications, and we have the time-tested experience and expertise to handle the largest, most complex workloads in the clouds. 

VMblog:  Why should a VMworld attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?

Virtustream:  Is SAP's 2025 deadline for S4/HANA closing in on your long-term IT strategy? Then a MUST SEE stop at VMworld 2019 is Virtustream's booth (#1827). Did you know Virtustream has migrated more than 2,500 SAP applications to the clouds over the past decade?  Born in the clouds, Virtustream is the trusted cloud partner of choice for hundreds of enterprise organizations around the world. If you're interested to hear more about their commitment to trust, here are two insightful videos from their President & CEO, Rory Read, and SVP of Cloud Platform & Services, Deepak Patil

VMblog:  How does your company and product fit within the VMware ecosystem?

Virtustream:  Virtustream and VMware are both part of the Dell Technologies family of businesses and tightly align to meet customer needs. Here are just a few of the ways that they collaborate and drive innovation into their solutions: Virtustream is currently one of only two cloud partners who can sell and manage the Azure VMware Solution (the Azure VMware Solution by Virtustream will be available later in 2019); and Virtustream's Enterprise Cloud is built on the full VMware SDDC stack and is a VMware Cloud Verified solution (of more than 4,200 cloud partners in VMware's ecosystem, only 50 vendors have earned this elite classification around the world).  

VMblog:  Attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke.  Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?

Virtustream:  Virtustream has a powerful booth offering, just like our cloud solutions! Our whiteboard session attendees have the chance to take home an 8,000 mAh Power Bank! Quickly charge up to three devices at once. 

VMblog:  Where can our readers learn more about Virtustream's solutions?

Virtustream:  The best place to start is on our case studies page here. Your readers can learn how we power dōTERRA's e-commerce system, or how we helped Dell Digital with its multi-cloud strategy, or how we managed NIBCO's migration to the cloud to accelerate their IT modernization journey.
