Keith Norbie, vice president of Nexus, a Stratos company, discusses the VMworld 2012 keynote speech, including VMware's cloud efforts, vFabric Application Director plans and interface changes. Norbie also notes the importance of the Nicira and DynamicOps acquisitions for multi-hypervisor and cloud implementations.
