VMwares focus is on enabling our customers to run their datacenters as internal clouds and operate in a far more flexible and cost-efficient way, said Paul Maritz, president and chief executive officer, VMware. Our customers want the plumbing to disappear in the datacenter, on the desktop and in the cloud so they can focus their staff time and IT budget on delivering business value. They want cloud-like services so they can act as hosting providers to their internal customers. Our Virtual Datacenter Operating System Initiative will accelerate customers down the virtualization path so that they can run their IT as an internal cloud service. The VMware vSphere generation of products, which are currently in development, will be a new class of software that delivers on this strategy. And, as customers become cloud-enabled, they will have the flexibility to securely and efficiently expand their internal clouds to tap the resources offered by external service providers through our VMware vCloud Initiative. I am excited to share the progress weve made on our initiatives at VMworld Europe.
