The majority of respondents, over 60%, said they are considering VMware for their next cloud project in order to ensure interoperability with their internal data center. Amazon and Microsoft follow with a little over 50% and 35% of your vote, respectively. 

Are you a current VMware customer? (if you’re a VMware partner, select “No.”)

An overwhelming majority of respondents, 70%, are current VMware customers.

As you can see, most of our audience already has a relationship with us, and for that, we’re thankful. We hope to continue to provide you with useful content about VMware and how the hybrid cloud can benefit your organization, regardless of size. 

Thanks again for everyone who took our survey, and if you were one of the first 200 respondents, enjoy the coffee.
