Edwin: Hi, I'm Edwin Yuen, ESG Analyst for Data Protection, Cloud, and Systems Management, and today I'd like to talk a little bit about a preview about what we expect or hope to see from Dell Technologies World.
I know that Dell provides a number of different companies, it's pretty widespread now, but from the data protection angle, we're certainly trying to see if there's any updates in terms of data domain, or in terms of any data protection software appliances, especially for the potential to go ahead and extend either into the cloud or do further protections from the cloud back to other clouds or back to on-premises.
We're also looking forward to some new announcements from VMware, either along the line from their existing virtualization software, updates to their systems management software, or the potential to have an expanded understanding of where they're going in terms of containers and cloud-native solutions.
Finally, we can certainly look to other solutions, such as Virtustream, what they're going to be doing with public cloud, and any additional strategies or any additional alliances as they are going to mate with some of the hyperscale public cloud providers.
It's certainly going to be a very exciting time from Dell Technology World, and we're going to have more videos and more recaps once the show is completed.
