VMware has also partnered with a number of hardware providers to offer appliances that midsized organizations could use to rapidly deploy a private cloud. These packages, under the name EVO-RAIL, will be offered by Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, Inspur, NetOne and SuperMicro.
While VMware partners with other companies, it continues to advance its technology.
It has released a new version of its NSX software for virtualizing networks, which promises to make rerouting data-center traffic as easy as moving a virtual machine from server to server. NSX, version 6.1, includes additional security enhancements to make it more suitable for enterprise quality operations.
The software, released a year ago, is being used by over 150 enterprise customers, Gelsinger said.
VMware is also beefing up its hybrid cloud services, which it recently renamed VMware vCloud Air (it was previously called VMware vCloud Hybrid Service). It has eight centers in the U.S., U.K. and Japan. The service now accepts credit cards for instant access. It is also working on an object storage service where organizations can keep their application data.
