Today VMware announced their being name a leader in the Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure. A few days ago I posted the Citrix press release so wanted to mention VMware as well.
According to Gartner, “Virtualization penetration has surpassed 50 percent of all server workloads, and it continues to grow.” The report continues: “The x86 server virtualization infrastructure market is the foundation for two extremely important market trends that relate and overlap: infrastructure modernization and cloud computing. Virtualization is a fundamental enabler to IaaS, and will be used to establish private cloud services, public cloud services and interoperable hybrid cloud services.”
“VMware customers of all sizes are leveraging a decade of virtualization investments to build cloud operations that will allow them to achieve the peak in automation, flexibility and efficiency,” said Rick Jackson, VMware CMO. “We believe our placement in the Leaders Quadrant underscores that VMware has the vision, strategy and offerings to help customers transform IT and deliver on the promise of cloud computing.”
