In this Intel Conversations in the Cloud audio podcast: Join Conversations in the Cloud for this special edition with VMware’s Pratap Subrahmanyam, a Fellow at VMware since 2013, and Jake Smith, Intel’s Director of Data Center Technologies Marketing to hear how VMware and Intel have worked together since 2006 to innovate private and hybrid cloud solutions. Pratap joined VMware in 2000 as a member of the technical staff (MTS)and has been a key player in their virtual machine (VM) monitor group, contributing to the design of MMU virtualization, paravirtual interfaces design principles, and, more recently, symmetric multiprocessor fault tolerance for virtual machines.

In this podcast, Pratap discusses the emergence of virtualization technology, the importance of VM density, VMware’s commitment to continually updating vSphere with the latest Intel Architecture innovations, and how VMware continues to meet the challenges of managing the Edge. Always building on their core value: providing enterprises with the capability to run a large number of virtual machines on a single node.

He goes on to discuss the deep collaboration between VMware and Intel and how they continue to work together to tackle complex technology problems and come up with innovative solutions. In the past 10 years, they have worked together to optimize VMware software on various Intel Architecture features, including, most recently, Intel Optane DC persistent memory, resulting in a revolutionary technology that enables virtual machines to be more efficient and able to run bigger programs on a single node. He discusses how VMware and Intel continue to engage with the Open Source community to drive standards and optimize current and future technologies.

Pratap also talks about how increased core density and memory utilization are going to transform virtualization from the edge to the cloud. This means that businesses will be able to run more VM’s with larger CPU’s that use larger amounts of memory—all on one node. This is enormously efficient.
