VMware customers are always on the lookout for new products and upgrades and the company continues to try to find ways to innovate and spread its tentacles into different areas of the data center. Between its cloud vision and its recent venture into containers with Photon Platform and vSphere Integrated Containers, the software giant's effort to expand its market is evident.
However, there were some cries for help on social media over the last couple of months. Ranging from those looking for help to those frustrated with download issues, VMware customers let their voices be heard. While the company continues its focus on updates to fix certain issues and alleviate the frustration that users experience, there are still those looking for help.
VMware customers expressed their frustration over vCloud Connector and other downloading issues. One user also complained about how Linux desktop users don't get all of the same features as other VMware customers. One user even boasted how a VMware Certified Professional, one of the company's certifications that users can earn, had come to them for help. Even though they held the certification, they still sought help from someone with their environment.
Over the past month, those VMware customers took to Twitter to vent their feelings and frustrations and in hope of finding help.
