Editor's note

In the last few months VMware finalized its biggest acquisition ever, taking control of Airwatch for a hefty $1.54 billion. The addition of Desktone, a Desktop as a Service provider, and hints that more purchases could be on the way have many IT professionals wondering exactly what the virtualization giant has in store. There are also serious questions about whether the company can make a successful transition from software vendor to service provider with its vCloud Hybrid Service lagging far behind the likes of Amazon, Google and Azure.  

More than 20,000 attendees are expected to join the VMworld 2014 conference to learn more about these new initiatives and catch up on the latest advances in server virtualization.

VMworld 2014 will take place August 24-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Check back for our full coverage, including news and videos from the show and the Best of VMworld 2014 award winners.
