VMware takes aim at enterprise hybrid cloud
#VMware is part of #DellTechnologies and is probably best known for its virtualisation technology — but it also wants to be the platform for enterprises’ #hybridcloud deployments, along with other areas such as mobile device management. ZDNet caught up with the company’s CTO Ray O’Farrell to find out where its ambitions lie. What’s the current state of play with VMware? People think of VMware as the virtualisation company, but in practice VMware has significantly expanded beyond that core x86, virtualisation story — you will have seen it over the years with things like #SDDC and the software-defined internet. Right now, we have a focus on things like private cloud and the virtualisation of [core systems], including all those together with management and so on. We think we are putting together a large, private cloud story enabling you to set policy, security, and so on.
