Clarifying the confusion on the VMware Cloud Strategy

Clarifying the confusion on the VMware Cloud Strategy

Now that VMworld is in full swing, I have had the opportunity to talk to a considerable amount of VMware Service Providers, Customers, and Cloud Consumers.  Everyone has asked the question what does the AWS announcement mean for [Insert vCAN, vCA, IBM] as cloud providers. From a vCloud perspective, adding AWS into the mix is simply just another VMware operated cloud provider.  VMware powers over 4200 service providers around the globe offering capabilities from Managed Services, Hosting and Cloud Services.  This announcement doesn’t change that, so how does it actually all fit together?  Lets try clarifying the confusion on the VMware Cloud Strategy with a diagram; This diagram speaks a thousand words (provided by Jenny Fong for VMworld). vCloud Air Lets start by looking at VMware vCloud Air, this is a VMware owned, VMware operated public cloud.  It runs in a VMware managed data center, is operated and supported by […]

VMware vCloud Air VMworld sessions available Now that VMworld has passed, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share the presentations that I gave. VMworld was incredibily busy time again this year, and the interest in VMwares’ vCloud Air continues to grow.
