VMware has used its virtual VMworld 2021 event to introduce VMware Edge, a portfolio that will cater specifically to help enterprises run, manage, and secure edge-native apps across multiple clouds.
According to VMware Edge and Service Provider SVP Sanjay Uppal, the company wants to help address two main problems that organisations face when deploying software stacks.
“There’s a challenge of real-time access and there’s a challenge in terms of scale in terms of the number of locations — and we will be addressing both of them,” he told media.
He also took the opportunity to define what the “edge” means to VMware, acknowledging the definition in the industry can mean something different to everyone.
“The edge is distributed digital infrastructure … for running workloads across a number of locations, and these locations are placed close to endpoints that are producing and consuming data,” Uppal said.
