Today at VMworld Barcelona, VMware introduced new cloud management solutions to simplify and automate the operations of cloud computing.

As part of the vCloud® Suite, or available separately, new VMware cloud management solutions simplify and automate IT management while empowering IT to govern services across multiple platforms and providers. These new offerings, which include VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite™ 5.6, enable you to help your customers rapidly deploy and provision cloud services across private and public clouds.
