Even though I work for EMC, I’ve always thought of VMware as a separate company. We’ve always used the same alliance model that we use with Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, SAP, et. al.
Given the recent IPO news from EMC, I guess that was the right approach.
We’ve been very busy behind the scenes preparing our portfolio for advanced VMware users. Most of the pieces have fallen into place, so I think it’s time to start painting the picture.
I’ve written about infrastructure issues for VMware ESX 3.0 (or VMware Virtual Infrastructure) before. But there’s more to say.
So, in the spirit of my Microsoft and SAP post, here’s the EMC landscape for VMware. There’s a lot to digest, so I hope you’ll patiently wade through it with me.
