The New Year starts out with some great additions to the VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion teams. As a result of continued growth and ongoing product development, VMware has decided to add more product marketing and product management expertise to the Fusion and Workstation teams.

Bo Fu, Nannette Vilushis, and me, William Myrhang, wanted to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves, revitalize the Workstation and Fusion blogs, and engage with our Workstation and Fusion users. We bring many years of product management and marketing experience to the team along with passion for helping IT to use virtualization software to be more successful.

We’re very excited to be working on products with great track records. VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion are exceptionally cool, proven, and reliable products that continue to win industry awards. Newbie product VMware Player Plus has surpassed all expectations in its first release as the best way to deliver a managed desktop. This success is largely due to our loyal user communities, who amaze us with their enthusiasm, ingenuity, and dedication to excellence. We want to celebrate our communities with frequent posts to the Workstation and Fusion blogs on product news, usage tips, links to other “creative” works, and occasionally share a little bit of information on what we are thinking or new features that we are considering….

In addition to our blogs, we are becoming active in VMware’s social communities (Community, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn).  If you have product suggestions, want to brag about something awesome that you have done with our products, or show off your encyclopedic knowledge of everything virtual… we look forward to hearing from you in the communities!
