VMware: Leading our Industry into a Software-Defined Future with Strategic M&A


At VMware, we’ve been a pioneer and leading innovator in “software defined” for nearly two decades. To get there, we have championed our own internal innovation, and augmented those efforts with acquired technologies. Previously, I outlined our three key tenets of our M&A strategy – platform acquisitions, industry acceleration acquisitions, and technology tuck-ins. This strategy helps us enhance our current product and service portfolio, keeps us at the forefront of industry leadership. Today I’m excited to share with you news about our latest platform acquisition with our intent to acquire VeloCloud Networks, the industry-leading cloud-delivered software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology for enterprises and service providers.

With VeloCloud, we will build on the success of the industry’s leading network virtualization platform – VMware NSX. What NSX does for data center networking, VeloCloud does to the wide-area network and edge environments – all in software.

Customers choose VMware NSX because it delivers network and security services closest to the application. Upon closing, VMware and VeloCloud will bring the same properties to the WAN with a comprehensive SD-WAN solution that provides full visibility, metrics, control and automation of all endpoints, resulting in better performance and availability for enterprise and cloud applications.

It’s A Software-Defined World

Networking in software is emerging as the de facto underpinning of an everything-to-everything connected architecture among data centers, branches, and the cloud. It exposes capabilities to enable access and interoperability across virtual machines and containers, IoT edge devices, domains, geographies, and organizational boundaries. And with the impending explosion of cloud services, customers will require new multi-cloud networking, security, and management capabilities that provide visibility, automation, and control from the data center to the cloud to the edge.
