VMware Announces That VMware vSphere 4(TM) Surpasses 500,000 Downloads

Momentum of Award-Winning Platform Driven by Demand for a Pragmatic Path to Cloud Computing

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/22/09 -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced accelerated momentum for VMware vSphere™ 4, with more than 500,000 customer downloads since being made generally available on May 21, 2009. This pace has rapidly increased to an average rate of more than 3,660 downloads per day. VMware vSphere is the world's leading virtualization platform, delivering customers unmatched business agility, cost savings; and efficiency required to run business critical applications; along with uncompromised control over application service levels. The award winning VMware vSphere platform is broadly recognized as the foundation for a pragmatic path to Cloud Computing.

"As customers continue to leverage virtualization for business critical applications, what becomes paramount is not just virtualizing server resources but also improving availability, security and scalability for applications," said Raghu Raghuram, VP and general manager of VMware's server business unit. "VMware vSphere is a proven platform that has consistently delivered optimal performance, security and cost savings to businesses of all sizes."

Unmatched Customer Benefit Through VMware vSphere
Proven customer results in efficiency, control and flexibility are driving the momentum behind VMware vSphere. VMware customers consistently report significant cost savings, including reduction in capital expenditures (CapEx) by up to 60 percent and average reduction in operating costs (OpEx) of 33 percent when comparing their VMware environment to a physical environment. With industry-leading performance and scalability, VMware vSphere extends these benefits to 100 percent of applications while delivering twice the consolidation ratio of competitive offerings.

Only VMware vSphere delivers these results through a comprehensive set of capabilities for virtualizing, pooling and dynamic load balancing of servers, storage, and networks. VMware vMotion(TM) was the starting point, enabling seamless virtual machine migration with zero downtime. With 70 percent of VMware customers indicating production deployment of vMotion(TM), VMware estimates that vMotion(TM) has driven nearly 350 million live migrations from its introduction through 2008, providing an estimated $459 million in IT administration savings.

VMware vSphere has built upon the VMware vMotion success, adding capabilities to provide higher service levels to applications at lower cost and administrative overhead, enabling customers to more fully embrace virtualization for business critical applications such e-mail, database, ERP, and CRM systems. VMware Storage vMotion and VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch enable customers to extend mobility to their storage and network while VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler and VMware Distributed Power Management simplify management and layering on policy driven automation. These automation tools have delivered for some customers a 47 percent improvement in application performance and a 20 percent reduction in power consumption. VMware High Availability and VMware Fault Tolerance bring unmatched resiliency for service level guarantees, while VMware vShield Zones adds the ability to manage logical security policies that are tied to applications and not devices. Customers deploying VMware vSphere 4 will be able to quickly take advantage of these capabilities and more, enabling the delivery of efficient, flexible and reliable IT as a service.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
