We are pleased to announce that VMware – for four years running – has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure” (read the press release). (1)
To access the complete Gartner report, go to:
According to Gartner, “As of mid-2013, almost two-thirds of x86 architecture workloads have been virtualized on servers.” The report continues: “Virtualization is a fundamental enabler to infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and will be used to establish private cloud services, public cloud services and interoperable hybrid cloud services. Effectively, all IaaS offerings will rely on VMs or container technology.”
We believe the recognition of VMware as a leader by Gartner highlights VMware’s vision, strategy and offerings to help customers achieve increased levels of agility, control and efficiency of their IT infrastructure. Over half a million customers of all sizes rely on VMware vSphere, the world’s most widely deployed virtualization platform, to simplify their IT footprint and maximize utilization of their existing IT infrastructure.
Thank you to our customers and partners for helping us achieve and maintain our market leadership.
