As Chris mentioned during the briefing, backup solutions grab data. In most cases this data is then never used, or in some cases […]

Last week I was talking to a customer and they posed some interesting questions. What excites me in IT (why I work for VMware) and what is next for hyper-converged? I thought they were interesting questions and very relevant. I am guessing many customers have that same question (what is next for hyper-converged that is). They […]
