2014 was yet another bumper year for VMware Solution Exchange with 256% YOY increase in total number of content views and 240% YOY increase in total number of content trys (proxy for download). Customers and Partners continue to see the tremendous value in creating and consuming content, eventually helping in deriving greater value from the management products. Just to give you an idea on how the content is consumed, here is a snapshot of our activity this past year:
The Top 4 content types (Content Packs, Application Blueprints, Orchestrator Plug-ins and Advanced Management Packs) are almost even across all four vRealize management products (Log insight, Automation, Orchestrator and Operations).
Looking forward into 2015, we see more exciting changes coming up for Solution Exchange that will give Partners, Customers and Developers much richer user experience in discovering, consuming and managing the content.
I look forward to meeting some of you during VMware Partner Exchange 2015 (PEX) at Moscone Center, San Francisco on February 3. As a reminder you can look at all of the VMware, Partner and Community content on the Solutions Exchange.
