Editor's note

For years, VMware was steering the future of enterprise IT, enabling consolidation, agility and pioneering a vision for the software-defined data center. Even as its core server virtualization business is facing stiff competition, VMware remains the market leader and has made bold strides into end-user mobility and hyper-converged infrastructure markets. In fact, early this year the company announced that the majority of its revenue wasn't coming from its core server virtualization management software, but from its network virtualization, cloud and end-user product lines.

However, cynics seeing new threats posed by containers along with slow NSX and EVO: RAIL adoption are asking whether the company is just paying lip service to these new trends or whether it can offer competitive alternatives as server virtualization loses its luster.

More than 20,000 attendees are expected to join the VMworld 2015 conference in San Francisco to learn more about these new initiatives and find out where the company's more established products are headed.

VMworld 2015 will take place Aug. 30 to Sept. 3 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Check back for our full coverage, including news from the show.
