Video: Opportunities for Partners in VMware’s Hybrid Cloud

With the launch of its own public cloud platform that’s compatible with its familiar on-site virtualization infrastructure, VMware is making the pitch that it’s the right choice for truly flexible hybrid clouds.

I caught up with Shawn Rosemarin, executive director of architecture and professional services for VMware Canada, at the company’s VMforum event in Toronto to chat about VMware’s hybrid cloud strategy and how partners fit into the equation.
