The solution capitalizes on some of the company's key acquisitions and combines the Spring Java development framework with VMware's new vFabric application services.
VMware rolled out its new strategy and solutions for cloud application platforms during its annual VMWorld Conference in San Francisco. The strategy aims to enable developers to build and run modern applications that intelligently share information with underlying infrastructure to maximize application performance, quality of service and infrastructure utilization, according to the company.

The VMware Cloud Application Platform combines Spring and vFabric to deliver a complete cloud application platform that ensures performance and portability across heterogeneous cloud environments. vFabric is a comprehensive set of integrated application services including a lightweight application server, global data management, cloud-ready messaging, dynamic load balancing and application performance management.

VMware's cloud application platform strategy is a key tenet of the companty's IT-as-a-service vision. IT-as-a-service is about optimizing the production of IT services and creating new models of IT consumption that dramatically improve IT agility. This changes the traditional view of IT as a cost center to one of value creator.
