VMware Aims To Be A Top 3 IaaS Cloud Provider
After Gartnerâ€™s annual Magic Quadrant placed VMware in the top 14 IaaS cloud providers, executives at the company asked users to give the company time and assured customers of their commitment to â€œbe a top 3â€ cloud provider. Despite VMwareâ€™s incredible success in the hypervisor market, they havenâ€™t had a major public cloud push until last yearâ€™s launch of vCloud Hybrid Service. However, Gartnerâ€™s biggest knock against VMware is their lack of appeal to developers compared to Amazon Web Services, the clear market leader. VMware hopes to address these shortcomings with big plans to offer developer-friendly capabilities, plans to target independent software vendors, and building their partner community.
