The Week Ending Sept. 1
This week's roundup of companies that came to win is headed up by VMware, which made waves at its annual VMWorld conference in Las Vegas with the introduction of a plan to offer Kubernetes containers as a service on an enterprise scale. The virtualization kingpin also got rave reviews from channel partners when it announced the pricing structure for its VMware on AWS Cloud service.
Also making the list are Dell EMC, which said it had patched up its partner portal sufficiently to reinstate training requirements for federal partners, as well as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which was all smiles when CEO Meg Whitman confirmed that she won't be leaving the company to head up Uber.
Of course, not every company in the IT industry was celebrating this week. For a rundown of companies that were unfortunate, unsuccessful, or just made plain-old bad decisions, check out this week's 5 Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
