VMware Adds Pivotal Hybrid Cloud Foundry and OpenStack Support
The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Discover how IT departments looking for ways to keep up with demand for business apps has caused a new breed of developers to surface - the Rapid Application Developer.
Along with adding support for OpenStack in vSphere, VMware also announced this week at VMworld that they are rolling out their joint initiative with Pivotal (a spinoff from VMware that owns SpringSource and Cloud Foundry).
