VMware Drops vRAM, Rallies Troops Around New CEO

At VMworld 2012, VMware ended its unpopular vRAM licensing scheme, which was essentially a tax on customers that overprovisioned RAM on their servers.

This news, delivered by incoming CEO Pat Gelsinger (pictured), came as welcome news to attendees, who showed their appreciation with an extended round of applause.

VMware also revealed plans to bundle vSphere with several of its management, networking, security and storage products in a new integrated offering called vCloud Suite 5.1, which it will sell as a single product.
