September 04, 2012 02:56 PMVMware's focus has shifted from virtualizing servers to virtualizing whole data centers--and storage vendors are happy to jump on for the ride.
August 30, 2012 01:37 PMRiverbed introduces new products at VMworld that address application deployment for cloud architecture, software-defined networking and virtual desktop infrastructure. Learn more about how the vendor is building on its VMware partnership.
August 29, 2012 11:35 AMSeveral vendors, including VMware, showed VXLAN implementations with vSphere. That's a good start for a new protocol, and with VMware's backing we'll see even greater support coming up.

August 27, 2012 04:13 PMThe VMware brass takes the stage at VMworld to announce a top-down and bottom-up approach that promises better support for integration and better management of storage and networking in its software-defined data center vision.
September 19, 2011 08:18 AMIt would be hard to call the recent VMworld anything but a rousing success. After all, 20,000 attendees descended on The Venetian in Vegas, and the vast majority would agree the trip was worth it. However the total experience wasn’t perfect, and as someone who’s attended, covered and occasionally exhibited at conferences for more than 25 years, I think it’s time for VMware to stop running the whole show itself and hire a professional trade show management company.
September 01, 2011 02:03 PMDespite Hurricane Irene’s best efforts, I finally made it to Las Vegas for VMworld late Monday night, and I have to say the joint is jumping. VMworld is starting to feel more like Comdex or Interop in their heyday than a vendor-driven education conference. I, for one, was ecstatic to get back to the days when people were excited about the tech as opposed to the stock price, and the tech talk spread from the show floor and breakout rooms to the craps tables.
September 01, 2010 10:36 AMOne of the key themes at VMworld this week is dealing with the I/O challenges that a physical host loaded up with a dozen or more virtual machines places on the storage and the storage infrastructure. This is caused by consolidating hundreds of I/O friendly stand alone systems into a few dozen hosts. While virtualization reduces the number of physical servers, it now makes every server an I/O nightmare.
August 31, 2010 10:26 AMVMworld kicked off yesterday, and despite the crowd, everything seems to be under control. The media/analyst area is no exception. It is under strict control (i.e. too much), making it very difficult for industry people like myself to get information to you about what is going on at the event. VMworld organizers will let the analysts and press in the area, but not the vendors we need to speak to. Anyone see a problem with that?
