Good evening, channel partners. Welcome to ChannelE2E Podcast 070 — co-hosted by Content Czar Joe Panettieri and CompTIA CEO Todd Thibodeaux. Our guest is Ross Brown, senior VP of worldwide partners and alliances at VMware.

You've heard the term "software eats the world." But Brown and VMware have a different take on the trend -- viewing it as "software unlocks the world." Indeed, Brown describes how partners will leverage APIs, clouds and virtualization to unlock the full value of IT for customers. Of course, we touch on VMware's push beyond server virtualization into network virtualization (NSX) and storage virtualization (VSAN).

Here's the podcast:

This is the latest in a multi-part podcast series, in which CompTIA and ChannelE2E explore the evolving partner ecosystem with a range of channel leaders.
