As the open source players have been "jockeying for position," VMware's network of providers that offer public cloud compatibility with on-premise VMware-powered infrastructure has surpassed 100 vendors, it announced. The blogpost plays on a theme of a fairy tale, equating the open source providers as "the ugly sisters.""
