SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/13 --
Addressing the needs of organizations to simplify IT, VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today at VMworld® 2013 announced a wave of new products and services designed to help IT accelerate their adoption of a software-defined data center architecture and take advantage of the value of advanced virtualization in areas such as networking and security, storage and availability, and management and automation. The news was unveiled at the company's 10th annual VMworld® in San Francisco, where more than 22,000 attendees saw first-hand details and demos of newly-introduced technology including VMware NSX™, VMware Virtual SAN™, VMware vCloud® Suite 5.5 and VMware vSphere® with Operations Management™ 5.5.
"With today's news, VMware is further empowering IT to help organizations become more agile, responsive and profitable," said Raghu Raghuram, executive vice president, Cloud Infrastructure and Management, VMware. "New products such as VMware NSX™ and VMware Virtual SAN™ will fundamentally redefine the hypervisor and its role in the data center. Along with the recently introduced VMware vCenter™ Log Insight™, these products represent the next wave of innovation at VMware. We continue to evolve the software-defined data center architecture to address IT's critical needs -- enabling them to build infrastructure that is radically simpler and more efficient while delivering the agility and flexibility to support the velocity of their businesses."
A year after introducing the software-defined data center architecture, VMware's pioneering IT framework has gained wide acceptance across global business giants and start-ups alike. In addition, customers that moved to a software-defined data center architecture have experienced greater value than those that did not. In a recent survey, for example, VMware found two-thirds of respondents reported being able to generate new revenue for their businesses when they expanded their use of virtualization(1). Of those businesses able to take full advantage of a complete software-defined data center architecture, 85 percent were able to generate new revenue as high as 22 percent for their businesses.
