Virtualization’s Second Act

I was quite disappointed with the coverage and analysis of VMware’s new vCloud Director (VCD) product, which the company introduced at its annual VMworld conference earlier this month in San Francisco. I think people focused too much on the superficial message of vCD being yet another new cloud platform, but missed the more important insight into what makes this product different from the virtualization we all know so well.

I wrote up my own take on the real change vCD represents in terms of organizational behavior, work flows, and approaches to managing mass virtualization. It was published this week on the VMware blog, so I must have been at least partially right. Go have a look and tell me what you think.
