Recent Highlights & Strategic Announcements

  • On May 21, 2013, VMware unveiled VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, an Infrastructure as a Service (“IaaS”) cloud operated by VMware and built on the trusted foundation of VMware vSphere, giving customers a common platform to seamlessly extend their data center to the cloud.
  • On May 22, 2013, VMware and SAP AG announced a new model to deliver SAP Core Solutions and SAP HANA® in the newly announced VMware vCloud Hybrid Service.

The joint offering is expected to deliver a fully managed subscription service offered by VMware on-premise, in the cloud or within hybrid deployments.
  • On June 10, 2013, VMware announced that NTT Communications (“NTT Com”), the cloud service provider of one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies NTT Group, will deploy VMware network virtualization as a core technology for its new cloud service, Enterprise Cloud (“EC”).  By incorporating VMware network virtualization into its EC service, NTT Com will provide seamless and flexible connectivity between customer data centers and the NTT Com cloud without changing the IP addresses of a customer’s existing, on-premise environment.
  • On June 11, 2013, VMware introduced VMware vCenter Log Insight, a new automated log management and analytics product for the Cloud Era. By extending analytics to logs, VMware enables IT organizations to gain real-time insights from vast amounts of log data generated by applications, physical hardware and virtualized infrastructure, helping to minimize troubleshooting times as well as improve operational efficiency and reduce IT costs.
  • In May and June of 2013, VMware made announcements regarding VMware vSphere integration with Apache Hadoop.  MapR Technologies, Inc. and VMware announced that MapR’s Distribution for Apache Hadoop is now certified for VMware vSphere. In addition, Cloudera and VMware announced that Cloudera Enterprise is now certified to run on vSphere. Through the VMware Ready program, VMware and Cloudera completed a detailed joint validation process, which enables enterprises to simplify and accelerate the use of Apache Hadoop within virtual and cloud environments.

Pat Gelsinger, chief executive officer, VMware, said:

The second quarter was a strong finish to a solid first half of 2013 for VMware, we see a significant market opportunity in the second half of 2013 and beyond. VMware continues to succeed because we are uniquely positioned to help customers move from the client-server era to the mobile-cloud era of computing.
