VMWARE EXPORE 2023 — VMware Explore 2023, the latest iteration of the multicloud vendor’s annual customer and partner event, kicked off Tuesday in Las Vegas.

As happens each year, VMware gave journalists a preview of the technology upgrades and innovations it’s launching at the show. In some ways, VMware Explore 2023 picks up where the 2022 event left off. In others, expect entirely new takes on digital transformation and cloud computing.

VMware Explore 2023 starts, though, as none of its other annual events has — with the specter of a new owner hanging over the proceedings.

It looks like behemoth chipmaker Broadcom will indeed close its $61 billion purchase of VMware no later than Oct. 30. That date comes later than Broadcom originally hoped and after a series of regulatory holdups in different parts of the world. Even so, the vendor has cleared the last big obstacle and is working toward finalizing the VMware buy. (Expect layoffs, according to the pretty reliable rumor mill. If the gossip is accurate, Broadcom will get rid of a number of non-engineers at VMware, and could start doing so as early as next week.)

For now, though, we go into detail on all the cloud-centric updates and new developments you can expect to see and hear about at VMware Explore 2023. Click the image above to get started.
