Notice anything different around here? We’ve put up some new curtains and rearranged the furniture. The VMware website has been completely renovated. We hope you like it and find it useful.
Along with the new paint, notice that we’ve reorganized. The five main tabs along the top of the page now contain the major sections of the site.
VMware. This is the main section, with information on VMware, our products and services, and our partners. Here you can also learn more about virtualization in general.
Communities. This section gathers together the VMware Technology Network discussion forums as well as other communities where VMware, our customers, and our partners can all interact. Blogs are also in this section, both from VMware as well as the greater virtualization blogosphere.
Virtual Appliances Marketplace. The VAM finally gets its own tab. Learn more about virtual appliances, and then download any of the over 550 virtual appliances, including production-ready appliances for your virtual infrastructure.
Store. Purchase products and support as well as manage your account, licenses, and contracts.
Support. Everything you need to successfully deploy and manage your virtualization infrastructure, including documentation, the knowledge base, and tools to interact with our support organization.
Everything that was here should still be here, so please poke around a bit if we’ve moved a side table or lamp. If you notice problems or can’t find something, please use this website feedback form. That’s the most direct way of reaching the web team. Feel free to leave general comments, both positive and negative, here on this blog post.
Led by the web team, an entire swath of VMware has worked to make this happen, including corporate marketing, sales operations, IT applications, IT operations, and QA. We’re proud of the new site and we hope whatever you need is both easier to find and easier to use — and looks better as well.

p.s. If I can get her to stand still, next week I’ll try to get Sindy Braun, senior director of web marketing, to say a few words here on the blog about the design philosophies and motivations that went into the redesign.
