VMWARE VMWORLD — “Multicloud is the digital business model for the next 20 years,” according to VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram.
With VMware VMworld 2021 kicking off Tuesday, he said: “It’s no longer about a ‘cloud first’ approach — it’s about being “cloud smart.”

He noted that organizations should have the freedom to choose the “right” cloud, based on their strategic business goals.
As such, VMware has unveiled VMware Cross-Cloud services to help customers navigate the multicloud era. The group of integrated services promised to help deliver “a faster and smarter path to cloud.”
VMware says today, the average organization runs 500 applications to drive its business. and those apps are distributed across clouds. Three in four (75%) VMware customers rely on two or more public clouds, and two in five (40%) use three or more. This multicloud approach allows organizations to be much more agile and resilient.
However, a multicloud environment is more diverse, complex and distributed than anything organizations have managed in the past. This complexity often forces tradeoffs between moving fast and managing risk, resulting in slower execution while increasing costs.
