VMware Names New Data Centre Business Leaders In EMEA
VMware has appointed Sylvain Cazard as its new vice president for Central EMEA, succeeding Luigi Freguia. Freguia’s promotion to general manager and senior vice president for EMEA was announced in November 2019.
Cazard has previously led VMware’s software-defined data centre business (SDDC) for the last two years, following three years as country manager for France and several years managing global accounts.
He will now be responsible for driving business growth, sales and operations across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Russia/CIS countries, Israel and Eastern Europe.
Taking over from Cazard is Nick Cross, who has been appointed as the new SDDC leader for EMEA. Cross brings with him more than 20 years of experience, including roles at Oracle, Dell/EMC, Pillar Data Systems and Morse, but was most recently leading VMware EMEA’s HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure) team.
Luigi Freguia said: “I want to thank Sylvain for his excellent leadership of our SDDC business, competing successfully for HCI opportunities over the past two years.”
On Cross’ appointment, Freguia said: “Nick has been instrumental in driving success with VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware’s HCI offerings. He is well qualified to leverage the SDDC as a bridge between past and future, between on-prem and off-prem assets and the enormous value and power of the hybrid cloud.”
At last November’s VMworld in Barcelona, Pat Gelsinger, VMware CEO, said: “Technologists who master multi-cloud will own the next decade.” As far as he is concerned the integration of Kubernetes with the firm’s own vSphere and NSX cloud control and management systems around containers is key.
VMware’s Cloud Foundation services were recently made available in AWS’ data centre facilities in Sweden for the first time. And when it comes to the edge, the company has moved to support what it calls the Telco Cloud.
Gelsinger said the telcos were creating the biggest edge opportunity with their roll-out of 5G, which would create new micro services that had to be supported across end user smartphones and the telcos’ own core infrastructure. Involving NSX, the vendor has launched Project Maestro to help support Telco Cloud orchestration. Over 100 telcos globally are already involved in the effort.
