SAN FRANCISCO—eWEEK's Eric Lundquist described VMworld 2014 very accurately and succinctly the other day in our publication with his piece titled "VMware Bridging Gap Between Traditional, Virtualized Data Centers." "Traditional technology vendors, and VMware in particular ... are eagerly trying to show that they can build bridges between the two worlds," he said. "However, building bridges requires more than simply dropping off loads of components and hoping that somehow the bridge gets built. You need a skilled team ranging from architects to welders to make a bridge happen. VMware doesn't want to be left behind as the best virtualization provider around in an era of cloud and mobile computing." IT is all about moving forward, improving upon what's already been improved, and getting new-gen products and services into production so that enterprises can be profitable. IT is nothing if not simply sophisticated tools for this purpose. In this eWEEK slide show, we offer a few highlights of new products being shown at the conference, which about 25,000 people attended Aug. 24-28 at the Moscone Center here.
