Unlocking workforce productivity with Spatial Computing

At VMworld 2019, in the solutions exchange and in a general session, we showed off a new project at VMware focused on several emerging technologies. The effort is an advanced research and development project under the Office of the CTO xLabs program, looking at how Spatial Computing will impact the future of work. You might […]

4 Hypervisors + 1 Server = 0 Nesting

Chris Wolf and Andrei Warkentin Today’s VMworld US keynote included a demo where we ran four hypervisors concurrently on the same x86 server, and none of the hypervisors were nested. While on the surface that might seem impossible, the magic that made it all happen was our continued work on running ESXi on 64-bit Arm platforms. […]

VMware Blockchain – VMworld State of the Union

It’s hard to believe that only a year ago, at VMworld US 2018, we announced Project Concord, an open-source blockchain stack with a scalable byzantine fault tolerant engine at its core. A few months later, at VMworld Europe 2018, we announced the beta of the commercial solution – VMware Blockchain – that is built on […]

Post Quantum Cryptography and the Approaching Storm

There is no shortage of excitement surrounding recent advancements in quantum computing! Whether it’s company press releases on new prototypes and products (e.g., IBM Q System One, IonQ), academic research on quantum applications or the physics of qubits (e.g. molecular simulation, single-photon emitters), or government-related announcements on new research initiatives (e.g., National Quantum Initiative, Stanford […]

Machine Learning at VMworld US 2019

Machine Learning (ML) creates tremendous opportunities for enterprises to detect patterns in the data they collect, and then use those patterns to create new products or services, improve existing offerings, and improve their internal operations. To obtain these benefits, enterprises will need to navigate a number of challenges. These challenges, and more, are discussed in […]
