VMware has released some more information about its upcoming vSphere 4 cloud operating system.

However, this bridging process is a work in progress due to the lack of standards. VMware's big pitch is that vSphere can run your data center and allow you to bridge out when external resources are needed.

John Gilmartin, director of product marketing at VMware, said the company is hoping to ease enterprises into cloud computing without redoing architecture.
