How will the VMworld news about SDN, storage affect VMware partners?Date: Aug 30, 2013
When VMware displayed a list of partners for its new NSX network virtualization platform at VMworld 2013, Cisco was notably absent.
That was the most glaring example of how this year's VMworld news could signal significant changes in virtualization market dynamics. But it wasn't the only one. VMware's push into software-defined networking and storage could create more competition with other VMware partners as well.
In this VMworld news video, Stu Miniman, principal research contributor at Wikibon, discusses the changing market dynamics and what they could mean for VMware partners.
