VMworld hasn’t officially started yet for the masses, but there are numerous internal partner and VMware events and discussions going on. This is building up to be a landmark event for the virtualization community, which is no surprise. Aside from VMware, many 3rd party vendors both hardware and software have major announcements that will be surfacing this week.
A couple of items that are gaining steam and will flood communication lines the next few days:
Cloud Computing and How VMware is Addressing – VDC OS (Scott Lowe’s Blog does excellent job defining this – http://blog.scottlowe.org/2008/09/15/follow-up-on-the-vdc-os-announcement/
Updated Core Products – ESX 4.0 Beta, VDI 3.x and more
Improved Enterprise Desktop to include Application Virtualization via ThinApp

Public announcements will be more detailed starting Tuesday morning after the keynote by Paul Maritz. This entry will be updated to reflect the news once public.
