The virtualization solutions provider VMware has launched vSphere 4, an operating system for cloud computing. The new release is claimed to be the first operating system for building internal cloud.

An extension of the VMware Infrastructure 3, a previous platform by the same company, vSphere is said to deliver the efficiency and performance required to run business critical applications in large scale environments, providing control over application service levels and preserving customer choice of hardware, operating systems, application architectures, and on-premise versus off-premise application hosting.

We see a huge potential for cloud computing in the Indian market, says Ganesh Mahabala, Regional Director - India and SAARC for VMware. "Our customer base in India has doubled over the last year and currently we have over 550 customers here, with many of them in the IT and ITES segments," he adds. The company also has some government agencies in its customers list.
