RIP Sherman Helmsley, the great George Jefferson

VMware acquires Nicira

We’ll were movin on up
In the cloud stack
To a deluxe datacenter, made of software
Moving on up
In the cloud stack
We’re finally getting network marketshare.

VMs got stuck in the rack
VLANs just didn’t scale
Took a whole lotta tryin’
Configs not to let things fail
Now we’re up in the big leagues

Getting our turn at nets
As long cloud scales, it’s you and me baby
There ain’t nothing washed about that

We’ll were movin on up
In the cloud stack
To a deluxe DC, made of software
Moving on up
In the cloud stack
We’re finally getting network marketshare.

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
