2011 is off to a great start at VMware! One of my favorite aspects of being CTO is the time I get to spend with our customers, and just the first month of this year has already wowed me in their enthusiasm to embrace cloud computing. From my local dry cleaner and his surprisingly rapid adoption of a cloud-based business model, to the fascinating cloud-based assembly line employed by LEGO, I continue to be inspired by the way our customers are using cloud to transform their approach to IT.
As I wrote in my previous blog, VMware has a strong focus on partnering with service providers to further enable our customers’ adoption of cloud and their movement toward IT as a Service. We are heading to Barcelona next week for Mobile World Congress and are fired up to show our customers and partners how to deliver the mobile enterprise.
Service providers are arming consumers with increasingly sophisticated devices and mobile services. VMware is arming enterprises to transform and consumerize how they do IT with cloud computing. Together, we can bring the cloud to VMware’s 250,000 business customers.
This takes a strong focus on both partnerships and products.
On the partnership front, just this last week we announced that Bluelock, Colt, and Verizon will be offering vCloud Datacenter services. By providing globally consistent cloud infrastructure, management and security, vCloud Datacenter services make it possible for enterprise customers to move computing workloads from internal virtualized infrastructure to any VMware vCloud Datacenter service and back. This is a key requirement for enterprise customers seeking to realize the potential of cloud.
On the product front, we have some cool handset and cloud-based software to showcase at Mobile World Congress:
We are looking forward to a busy week in Barcelona, and a great year in advancing our customers along their journey toward IT as a Service. Keep in touch with us here, on the CTO website, or on Facebook or Twitter. I would love to hear what you think!
This is great stuff, try google VM and the results are ....
This is great....
VM results could rank the VMware website as the best. MVP on the client side, ESXi for the servers and leading the farm based computing- will there be any difference between the client and server.
welcome to the world of VM... ARGoogle
Regarding the mobile virtualization; I've seen the video and it looks very cool indeed.
I have a question; My company has a use case for this that requires a custom Android build (custom kernel, custom OS, custom apps) - I've not been able to find any pointers on what we need to do (over and above the usual Android build process) to target a VM.
Can you point me to this information?
