VMware has remained in the news cycle since its announcements on the cloud computing front last week. In a blog post, the company announced the launch of VMware Integrated OpenStack, which, notably, is available for use, free of charge, with VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus, vSphere with Operations Management Enterprise Plus and all editions of vCloud Suite. The company is also pushing its vision of “one cloud, any app, any device.”
As I noted in this post, VMware is shrewdly moving away from eschewing open source platforms, and embracing them instead, especially with OpenStack. That’s become abundantly clear in comments VMware’s leaders have been making.
