No year is complete without VMworld Europe. In 2015, a record breaking 10,000 people made their way to Barcelona, where some of VMware’s top execs outlined the new and updated products that are coming together to deliver the One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device vision. These included vRealize Automation 7, vSphere Integrated Containers and the vCloud NFV platform.
