Las Vegas replaced San Francisco as the host of this year’s VMware VMworld U.S. Conference, Aug. 29-Sept. 1.
The virtualization giant’s executives outlined new products and services and highlighted top customers and partners. Hundreds of companies showcased their portfolios in the Solutions Exchange expo hall.
