Be sure and check out Bogomil at about 9:00 minutes in where he answers the burning question: is the hypervisor becoming commodified? (I’ll give you a hint: he says no. Bogomil spends a lot of time talking with customers, so he has some very interesting observations on what people find important in their virtual infrastructure and a reliable, proven platform is not something you can just pick up at the corner store.)

discussion about VMware’s product line, a review of the role of a
hypervisor and commoditization and the competition VMware faces from
Microsoft and Citrix.
Many many many more video interviews from Tarry, Nicolas, and Robin at virtualization.com’s video blog.
