According to Gartner, â€œVirtualization (in the form of VMs and containers) is a fundamental enabler to IaaS, and it 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.â€
â€œCustomers around the world both large and small rely on VMwareâ€™s unified platform of virtualized compute, network, and storage software to power their businesses,â€ said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president of product management and marketing, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. â€œWe believe that VMwareâ€™s placement in the Leaders Quadrant demonstrates the impact our vision, strategy, and offerings are having in todayâ€™s IT environments. We will continue to drive innovation across VMwareâ€™s unified platform, including VMware vSphereÂ®, to enable our customers to virtualize any application and to achieve breakthrough IT efficiency, agility and flexibility across hybrid cloud environments.â€
