Newly Launched VMware Edge Cloud Orchestrator Helps Customers Deploy, Manage, and Better Secure Edge-Native Applications and Infrastructure at Scale
Enterprises and service providers alike are looking to the edge as the next frontier for digital transformation. Edge deployments today are proprietary integrations of custom hardware and software. They are giving way to the new software-defined edge that is intelligent, programmable, and scalable.
At VMware Explore 2023 Las Vegas, VMware, Inc. announced new capabilities, solutions, and services to help customers accelerate their digital transformation at the edge. Among the new announcements are New VMware Edge orchestration capabilities to orchestrate and manage multiple edge services at scale; and a new retail edge industry solution to support customer engagement, loss prevention, and point-of-sale transformation.
VMWare also announced the VMware Edge managed connectivity service, which would enable wireless service providers to deliver private 4G/5G services to enterprises. The VMware Edge managed connectivity service will be made available soon.
Sanjay Uppal, senior vice president and general manager of Service Provider and Edge, VMware, said, “The VMware Edge Cloud Orchestrator is a powerful new tool that extends our proven network automation and orchestration capabilities to help organizations more securely and cost-effectively install, configure, operate, and maintain their edge deployments.”
Building off the VMware Edge Cloud Orchestrator launch, VMware also unveiled new orchestration capabilities for VMware Edge Compute Stack based on Project Keswick. Keswick is available as a Technology Showcase today and allows edge administrators to work with VMware to develop use cases.
Today, VMware also unveiled the VMware Private Mobile Network, a managed connectivity service to accelerate edge digital transformation. The service will become initially available in the current quarter.
