VMware promises that tomorrow (27AUG2012) "Something big is about to happen". For us who are not in San Francisco we can follow the event live by signing up here:
While we're waiting we can make some predictions on what we can expect. There have already been some rumours about what we can expect, but we wont know for sure until tomorrow.
We do know that Microsoft will soon release Windows Server 2012 with an improved version of Hyper-V and they have several TechEd sessions that compare their future Hyper-V version against the current edition of vSphere. We suspect that VMware will announce something as a response to this and more. I guess also cloud and cloud bundles is still something we will hear alot about.
