My Point of View for the Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure of Gartner

Gartner released their Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization infrastructure and Microsoft is a leader. The bad news is that VMware are still in front. But if we look in the article we will see that Cautions mentioned for Microsoft are all addressed as features in System Center 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Azure Pack. So Microsoft is already one step ahead by providing Preview for these products and releasing them before the end of the year. But what about VMware? Well from my point of view they haven’t moved significantly forward. Let’s remember this video from more than an year ago and we will see a promise that I cannot say it is fully fulfilled. I am not VMware expert but this is my point. Taking also the fact that Microsoft now has a faster release cycle I can predict if Microsoft is not first in this quadrant it will be at least head to head with “the other guys”.
