It is only day two of VMworld, and there is so much excitement around cloud services from VMware. On August 21, we announced the rebranding of vCloud Hybrid Service to vCloud Air, our new name for the industry’s only enterprise-ready Hybrid Cloud. We also introduced the vCloud Air Network, providing more choice in cloud service options to our customers than any cloud provider in the industry.
The cloud is VMware’s second DNA, and the rebrand to vCloud Air represents how VMware will deliver innovation as a service, from the data center to the desktop and mobile applications, all on top of the vCloud Air platform.

We have so much to share with you and there are too many for me to cover here in my blog so I am going to focus on the exciting announcements made this morning.

In addition, we will showcase innovative use cases for our products on stage at the general session later this morning to spotlight how they work in the real world.
