VMware Alternatives: Exploring Your Options

Broadcom’s acquisition of VMware has mid-market organizations scrambling to figure out their next move. Do you accept the steep price increase—anticipated to be 3X what many were paying before the purchase. Or do you use this as an opportunity to explore moving to the cloud? Or do you consider a hosted option?

Join Mindsight COO and CIO Tad Gralewski on May 16th at Gibsons Steakhouse in Oak Brook to explore your alternatives and what might be best for your organization. Tad will cover in detail the pros and cons of each alternative, including:

    • Moving to Microsoft Hyper-V
    • Moving to a Hosted Cloud environment
    • Moving to a Public Cloud, like Azure
    • Or simply accepting the new terms and paying a hefty price increase


Tad will delve into the many nuances that need to be considered under each option – from talent requirements to investment requirements to training requirements. Begin the conversations now so you can be thoughtful about your plan and what will be needed to execute on your plan.

Thursday, May 16, 2024 from 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM CT

Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse, 2105 Spring Rd, Oak Brook, IL 60523
