Today officially marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, where we bring awareness to the importance of climate action to help heal our planet. We’re facing unprecedented times—sheltering in place, homeschooling, and taking care of loved ones over phone or video. This is a powerful reminder of how interconnected and interdependent we are on each other, our communities and our planet. And how VMware’s rallying cry this Earth Day—Every Bit Counts—is more meaningful than ever.

PALO ALTO, California /3BL Media/ - 2018 marked a very special year for us at VMware. We celebrated our 20th anniversary, and brought together our founders, along with our current leadership, during our employee all-hands meeting, to reflect on the past and celebrate how far we’ve come. We created a timeline that begins when five forward-thinking technologists in 1998, all passionate about creating a new way to compute, came together to form the business.

As VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger prepared last month to raise funds for charity by climbing one of the world's highest peaks, he had already been scaling another mountain of sorts in his efforts over the past two years to transform the company.
Like Mount Kilimanjaro, which Gelsinger successfully hiked to help fund the construction of a girls' school in Kenya, the summit he was aiming for was high: reshape the company's public cloud strategy, transition its go-to-market strategy and solidify its relationship with parent company Dell Technologies.
