If you’re like countless organizations around the world, then chances are you depend on VMware’s products to run mission-critical applications in a secure, resilient, and cost-efficient manner. You’ve also likely invested in perpetual licenses, support contracts, and hybrid cloud credits to get the most value from your VMware solutions. And you’re (hopefully) happy with your IT infrastructure’s performance, availability, and efficiency.

But of course, times change – and so do the OEMs you rely on.

Introducing VMware by Broadcom

Broadcom has recently acquired VMware for $61 billion and has restructured the company into four divisions: VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), Tanzu (TNZ), Software-Defined Edge (SDE), and Application Networking and Security (ANS).

With this acquisition, Broadcom is also streamlining VMware’s product portfolio and transitioning to 100% subscription licensing.
