Feb 26 at PEX – 12:30 – 3:00 PM in Jasmine A,B, third level.
Eddie Dinel, Director of Product Management will lead this Roadmap session – A software-defined datacenter is where all infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, and the control of this datacenter is entirely automated by software. VMware is making the software-defined datacenter a reality, starting with solutions announced at VMworld 2012. This session builds on that momentum with a NDA Roadmap look at VMware’s plans for 2013, 2014 and beyond in the areas of vSphere, software-defined networking and security, software-defined storage and availability, interacting with the virtual datacenter as an IT provider and IT consumer, infrastructure management, and extensibility.
