In this episode we discuss VMWare. Based on recent article in GigaOm, “VMware Hotseat Getting Hotter by the Minute”. We end up discussing how the virtual machine changed its nature to become a cloud instance and how the cloud quickly takes the place of the expensive traditional VMWare layer. That takes the discussion straight to an interesting new startup - Ravello that already made start up financing round of $26M . Ravello allows you to encapsulate a complete application (load balancers, app servers, web servers, databases, etc.) AND it’s environment (networking, storage, etc.). The result is complete portability across clouds and between on-premise and public clouds.Click Here for More CloudChronicle Episodes
