VMware Continues as #1 Vendor in Worldwide Data Center Automation
The latest IDC report is out and it should come as no surprise that VMware is once again in the top spot globally for datacenter automation software. If you are unfamiliar with IDC’s market share report on “Worldwide Datacenter Automation Software Market Shares”, it’s based on examining the leading vendor shares and market trends from the previous year. In this case, it’s for all of 2016.
VMware has been the market leader in the space, as shown by IDC, for many years and for this past year IDC has once again ranked VMware as the #1 vendor after we garnered the largest market share of 28.6% and estimated revenues in the space of $668.9 million. Beyond this the entire market continues to grow and IDC currently estimates it at $2.3 billion, up 3.5% from last year.
As the market evolves and customers continue to automate their datacenter (or cloud) workloads, VMware has the software to make it happen. This should come as no surprise since we have been able to maintain our leadership and investments in this area. VMware’s vRealize Suite delivers a comprehensive cloud management platform for this purpose. It can manage hybrid (multi-cloud) environments across on-premises and public clouds. It speeds up the delivery of IT services through automation and pre-defined policies, providing high level of agility and flexibility for developers and lines of business while maintaining governance and control.
