VMware is highlighting a number of different offerings at MES East 2013. The first is vSphere with Operations Management, which combines its vSphere virtualization platform with vCenter Operations Management Suite. The second is its vCloud Suite offering, which is for customers interested in building in-house cloud infrastructure. The third is vSphere Data Protection Advanced, which is an integrated, scalable, virtualization-aware backup and recovery solution for vSphere. Lastly, it will be sharing its hybrid cloud plans that give midmarket customers options to seamlessly leverage a mix of resources from their own IT infrastructure and resources from public-cloud infrastructure, giving them a lot of flexibility as they grow. "We're making it easier for midmarket organizations to manage, deliver, secure and control desktops and data," said Brandon Sweeney, vice president of midmarket and small-business customer segment at VMware.
