Listen in on the audio webcast to hear about VMware’s interest as an inaugural member of Intel® Storage Builders.

For more details on Intel® Storage Builders and VMware, visit the newly launch VMware partner microsite to learn about how Intel® optimized VMware Hyper-Converged Software solutions based on Intel® architecture bring together best-in-class compute, storage, networking virtualization, and management offerings. The addition of Storage to the Intel® Builders programs drives the same value in shift to the hyper(visor)-converged infrastructure market that VMware Hyper-Converged Software drives.
