From the editors virtual desk

Hi everyone, well VMworld US 2014 is over and there were so many announcements. While I did not make it to this fantastic event this year I am sure that I will next year. There were so many newsworthy articles produced, tweets and other posts from the many VMware staff at the event and our vExpert's and customers.


I know that with all of the amazing solutions announced that it will be another amazing year to be working with VMware technology.


This edition is dedicated to VMworld US 2014, all of the dedicated professionals who helped make this event a reality and of course our wonderful customers who make this event the amazing success that it is.


I hope you enjoy all of the wonderful news from this most fantastic event.
