Raghu Raghuram: ‘We Are A Force To Be Reckoned With’
Eighteen years after first joining VMware, Raghu Raghuram stepped on stage as CEO of the company to deliver his keynote address at VMworld 2021.
“VMworld is always my favorite event of the year. I love this VMware community and this opportunity to come together,” Raghuram said in his opening remarks to thousands of virtual attendees who tuned in to the first day of VMworld 2021 on Tuesday.
The Palo Alto, Calif.-based virtualization and hybrid cloud software star unleashed a slew of new products, services and channel partner incentives at this year’s VMworld, which was conducted virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.
Raghuram took over the leadership reins from former CEO Pat Gelsinger earlier this year with his keynote focusing heavily on how VMware is going to become the multi-cloud kingpin in the years to come.
“At this stage, it’s clear: multi-cloud is going to be the model we’re going to use for the next 20 years,” said Raghuram.
