CBR: VMware Revamps vSphere for Cloud Era

VMware has updated its vSphere virtualisation suite and introduced a new Cloud Infrastructure Suite that it hopes will make, “infrastructure go away,” according to CEO Paul Maritz. Maritz added that VSphere 5 is the, “first step along the road to a more automated world where infrastructure is something people can just rely on.” VMware’s boss added that vSphere 5.0 is four times more powerful than its predecessor, with the ability to process over one million IOPS (input/output operations per second).
