A Partnership for High Performance


VMware and McLaren Racing are embarking on a technology-fueled journey that will empower McLaren Racing to freely and flexibly manage, connect, protect, and deliver the cloud-based apps and workloads their teams rely on, wherever they are, at race speed.



The McLaren Racing team will leverage VMware technology to power:


App Optimisation Across Multiple Clouds: McLaren Racing runs apps in their own datacenters, in the public cloud, and at the edge trackside. VMware’s multi-cloud solutions will enable McLaren Racing to better understand, optimise, and secure their cloud footprint today, whilst architecting their environment for the future to meet the rapidly changing demands of a team operating at the cutting edge of technology.

Edge Connectivity: VMware SD-WAN will enable McLaren Racing to utilise bonded networks and smart traffic shaping to deliver reliable connectivity at the extreme edge.

An Anywhere Workspace: VMware Anywhere Workspace will enable McLaren Racing to deliver a seamless user experience to team members as they access apps from multiple devices both at base, and on the road. This combined with zero touch device provisioning, will enable IT to provide support for their global team whilst gaining full visibility of both device performance and user experience.


Laura Heisman, Chief Marketing Officer, VMware , said, “McLaren Racing and VMware share a commitment to excellence and a desire to push the boundaries of what is possible to take on the biggest challenges. Through this multi-year deal, we will help drive innovation for the McLaren Racing team in their pursuit of a world championship.”
