Some great news for VMware and something I would encourage you to share with your IT team if you are still deciding on which virtualization platform to invest in. VMware is positioned in the leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure.
According to the VMware Press Release:
“The market continues to embrace virtualization as a foundation for IT transformation, gaining maximum efficiency from existing resources while establishing a new model for efficient, agile cloud operations,” said Rick Jackson, chief marketing officer, VMware. “We believe our position as a leader reflects VMware’s success in leading the market beyond early-stage server consolidation to establish the globally consistent infrastructure for private and public cloud environments while also creating the new backbone of the modern desktop.”
It’s an exciting time to be part of this data center virtualization movement. I am working hard on moving from bare-metal to virtualized servers. It will take time but the pay offs will be incredible.
