VMworld 2017 Highlights

Aug 28, 2017 - Las Vegas :

At the opening of VMworld 2017, VMware announces an expanded set of products and services as part of VMware CloudTM to help businesses juggle the multiple cloud services that they are currently using, and take control of, simplify and accelerate their cloud delivery strategy.

Additionally, VMware announced new releases of VMware Integrated OpenStack and VMware vRealize Network Insight to help customers modernize their data centers to increase business and developer agility while introducing increased networking and security capabilities.

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger highlights capabilites of vSphere  6.5

Across all of these platforms, businesses can fortify their infrastructure with the launch of VMware’s AppDefenseTM, an app designed for security professionals that uniquely protects applications running on VMware vSphere-based® virtualized and cloud environments. Leveraging the virtual infrastructure to create a “least privilege” model around applications, AppDefense can control app behavior, and detect and automate response to attacks that attempt to manipulate the application.



1.) VMware Helps Enterprises Succeed in the Multi-Cloud Era
  • VMware® Cloud™ on AWS is now initially available in AWS U.S. West (Oregon) region
  • New VMware Cloud Services that enable end-to-end visibility into cloud usage, costs, and networks, with consistent networking and security across public clouds and on-premises environments
  • New VMware Cloud Provider™ services and partner offerings based on VMware Cloud Foundation™
  • Expanded VMware NSX® support of networking and security for clouds and cloud-native apps
  • New VMware Cloud Provider innovations including VMware vCloud Director® 9.0

2.) VMware AppDefense

This new security solution leverages the virtual infrastructure to monitor running applications against their intended state, and can detect and automate response to attacks that attempt to manipulate those applications.

“The growing frequency and cost of security incidents points to a fundamental flaw in security models that focus solely on chasing threats,” said Tom Corn, senior vice president, security products at VMware. “AppDefense delivers an intent-based security model that focuses on what the applications should do – the known good – rather than what the attackers do – the known bad. We believe it will do for compute, what VMware NSX™ and micro-segmentation did for the network; enable least privilege environments for critical applications.”

This features leverages on machine learning technology for reasoning.

3.) VMware Advances Software to Help Customers Modernize Data Centers

  • VMware Integrated OpenStack 4 will be based on OpenStack Ocata and boost support for containerized applications
  • VMware vRealize Network Insight 3.5 to deliver increased monitoring and compliance capabilities for NSX
  • New HCI Acceleration Kit to enable distributed IT with cost-effective hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) systems powered by VMware vSAN
  • VMware to embrace Big Data and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workloads with new vSphere Scale-Out edition
