VMworld 2015 Video Retrospective and Wrap Up

As virtualization community members get ready for the fast approaching VMworld Europe 2015 event taking place in Barcelona, I thought it appropriate to take a quick retrospective look at what took place at this year's VMworld US 2015 event in San Francisco.  While VMblog won't be able to attend the show in Europe, we are already looking forward to next year's event as it moves to Las Vegas in 2016.  We hope to see you there!
