8 VMworld Scenes That Show The Expanding Influence Of VMware And Partners


Bigger And Better Than Ever

There's nothing quite like VMware's VMworld conference in the tech industry landscape. For the past few years, virtualization and cloud experts have flocked to San Francisco to hear about the vendor's latest and greatest technologies and bask in the glow of data center innovation.

This year, VMware had arguably its biggest fusillade of product promotion ever, pitching new tech like NSX network virtualization, VSAN storage and EVO:RAIL -- VMware's answer to products from scrappy, hyper-converged startups like Nutanix and Simplivity.

The excitement spilled out onto the streets of San Francisco too. CRN was there and captured some scenes that show that VMware's reach is broader and more profound than ever.
