How IT shops can make the software-defined infrastructure a reality

SAN FRANCISCO -- At this year's conference, Rod Gabriel, an IT infrastructure engineer and active member of the VMware User Group community, talks about the promise of the software-defined infrastructure and the obstacles to immediate adoption.
