Gartner Wonders; Will VMware become the next Novell?


I know, I know, the title alone can be misleading, but what I’m thinking here is a result of yet another trip down memory lane.   I was talking with a client at the IT Operations and Management conference this week and he was a huge VMware fan (as are many).  During the conversation he was completely dismissing the potential impact of Microsoft (or anyone else) on future virtualization markets, so I convinced him to do a little what if analysis with me, just to see what would evolve.  I started by putting him in the way-back machine and telling him the short version of “what ever happened to Novell”. 

Back in the early 1990’s Novel owned the local area network market – they were as dominant as VMware is today with well over 90% of the market and had an incredibly loyal following (I can attest to this having attended multiple Brainshare events with 10,000+ attendees – and I have the t-shirts to prove it).
