Data Centers are undergoing the most radical transformation since they were first created. For decades, they were walled off and isolated vaults containing some of an organization’s most valued assets. Only a handful of data center shamans were authorized to query that data center for information. It’s no coincidence that that largest data center vendor in the world is named Oracle.

With a commanding 60% market share, VMware is currently the 800 pound gorilla in the virtual room. And if the news rolling out of this year's VMworld tradeshow was an indicator of its competitive strength, they're obviously not resting on their laurels.
