VMware’s cloud infrastructure, based largely on vSphere virtualization technology, is threatening to competitors because it provides an important launch pad for the company’s burgeoning vFabric application platform. Ever since VMware launched its cloud strategy at its VMWorld conference last year, officials have highlighted application development as an important layer of its cloud compute ecosystem.

One month after announcing its vFabric 5 integrated application platform for virtual and cloud environments, VMware rolled out this week the next-generation integrated cloud infrastructure, along with a new licensing model, optimized to support its application platform including its PaaS-based option called Cloud Foundry, thereby providing a clear and present danger to competitors IBM, Oracle and others.
