Why virtual RAM licensing didn't jibe with VMware shops

There was much discussion around the virtual RAM (vRAM) licensing controversy during VMworld 2012's first keynote, as new CEO Pat Gelsinger announced its end. Dan Brinkmann explains why charging customers based on consumption makes sense for service providers. On the customer side, however, licensing on a per-socket basis is more efficient for large environments.

Our experts also look ahead at day two's keynote, where VMware will cover integration between Wanova's Mirage technology and View. Plus, attendees can look forward to learning more about vCloud as the show goes on.

"If you're a vSphere customer, for most people, you're now going to be a vCloud customer as well," Brinkmann said.
