VMware falls short explaining the software-defined future

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gartner analyst Chris Wolf dissects the keynote address from Day 1 of VMworld 2013.

Wolf explains that though VMware talked up the software-defined trend, it still has work to do to ensure VMware shops fully understand the technology and how they can start to implement it in their data centers. He goes on to say that VMware has the ability to be more of a cloud provider like Amazon, but needs to "take it a step further."

In this video, hear about some of the highlights from the address and whether VMware really is addressing the needs of modern data centers.
