The Register: VMware Orders vCloud Army Across Five Continents

VMware envisions a world where applications can roam across one big intercloud. Apps won’t just jump from internal data centers to public cloud services, the company believes. They’ll move from cloud to cloud like phone calls across cell networks. That’s why VMware is keen on getting its vSphere server virtualization not only in the corporate data center, but out there on the service providers who want to be the next Amazon EC2. Then VMware can own the corporate cloud computing on both sides of the firewall.
