Once again, we embark on an exciting journey through the ever-evolving realm of VMware Aria. In the recent VMware Explore event, VMware unvelead a strategic shift aimed at turbocharging customer's modern application endeavors. At the heart of this transformation lies the birth of a new unit known as Tanzu Intelligence. As part of this initiative, several products have found their new home under this umbrella, including Tanzu Hub (formerly Aria Hub), Tanzu CloudHealth (formerly Aria Cost), and Tanzu Guardrails (formerly Aria Guardrails). As a result, these solutions will not be part of this newsletter anymore.

Stay tuned as I bring you the freshest updates from the VMware Aria landscape.
