Creating The Enterprise Cloud: A Q&A With VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger

By | May 11, 2014

The term “cloud” is by now so overused that most people lump it in with the rest of the marketing buzzword pantheon with terms like “solution”, “leverage” or “ROI.” You’re probably thinking that the cloud is what Google and Amazon do and how could it possibly be relevant to your business? Well it is (what Google does) and it will be (important to every business) and VMware wants to be the company that delivers it. It’s called the software defined data center (SDDC) and for CEO Pat Gelsinger it’s increasingly a part of discussions with his C-level customers.

In part one of this exclusive Q&A after his Interop keynote, Gelsinger shares details about VMware’s SDDC strategy and how it’s evolved from servers to networks and storage.
