VMware has updated its stack of data center virtualization software, rounding out capabilities that allow an organization to run an entire data center operation and related cloud services as a single unified entity.
Among the new additions are components to the vCloud Air suite of software for running cloud services. The company has expanded its network virtualization software to provide more ways of moving a workload across a data center. And it has also released a new version of its OpenStack distribution for running cloud workloads.
The architecture best suited to deliver enterprise and cloud-native applications is one based on virtualizing organizations’ compute, network and storage resources so they can be delivered on multiple platforms, said Mark Chuang, VMware’s senior director of product marketing and management.
