This week, as promised, we're recording the show from VMworld in San Francisco, and -- as expected -- it's been a busy show. VMware finally raised the curtain on its new hyper-converged infrastructure product family called EVO, there were some updates to their end-user computing portfolio, and they've managed to confuse us all by rebranding their cloud services and management tools.
In this episode of the This Week in Virtualization podcast I catch up with Simon Crosby, the CTO of Bromium, to follow up our previous conversation on containers for a quick chat about VMware's support for Docker containers and where the future of virtualization is headed. I also sit down with Bob Plankers, a Tech Target contributor and IT architect, to ask him about EVO:RAIL and the software-defined data center trends he's seeing at the show. We also talked about the level of innovation from vendors on the show floor and his thoughts on the Best of Show winner from our Best of VMworld Awards, Data Gravity.
