Gartner Magic Quadrant: x86 Server Virtualization

Gartner recently released its 2013 Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization. Quick summary in comparison to last years Quadrant (see 2012 below): Not much change for Oracle, Parallels and Redhat. On the other hand Citrix lost some ground (probably due to the fact that they are focusing on Desktop Virtualization), and with no surprise Microsoft’s score has increased. It seems that Microsoft’s platform has matured and is beginning to turn heads in bigger enterprises, VMware still dominates the enterprise market. As much as I love VMware’s products, I like the fact that Microsoft is doing well and keeping VMware on their toes. Remember that competition sparks innovation and lower costs and will always benefit the customers. I encourage you to read the full report from Gartner and let me know if you agree with their assessment.
