VMware to make serious network virtualization news at VMworld?

A nice find by Stu Miniman at Wikibon. He dug up this video in which VMware’s director of research and development Howie Xu previews his session at VMworld, “The Future Direction of Networking Virtualization.

In the video below, Xu talks about VMware’s plans to announce an “open, extensible networking virtual chassis platform so that anyone can develop the on-demand networking service on top of vSphere.”

Hit pause at the beginning of that video and look at the white board. As Stu pointed out in his blog, you’ll see the term “vFabric” at the top, to the right. Stu thinks this could be the name of a new virtual networking OS from VMware.

I'm thinking there will be a vCenter plugin that pretends to manage the switch that VMware is connected to. Second guess, an extension that integrates with certain vendors to provide dynamic L2 extension - think F5 and their pseudo feature.
