VMware, Open Source, and the New World of Enterprise IT


From its beginning as an enterprise software company, VMware has had an active relationship with the open source community. But this should come as no surprise. The focus and innovations of the open source community in virtualization and cloud technologies has, in many respects, progressed in parallel with VMware. Cloud Foundry, the leading open source, multi-cloud application platform for global enterprises, originated in VMware; and both Spring Source and Pivotal Software, two key drivers of open source innovations, have strong connections with the company.

VMware’s close relationship with the open source community also reflects the enhancements that community brings to VMware products. VMware encouraged the creation of a developer ecosystem large enough to leverage and take advantage of the possibilities of VMware virtualization. “We wouldn’t have been able to support all that,” says VMware Executive Vice President and CTO, Ray O’Farrell, “so we opened up our model to allow others to provide their own drivers. We opened the APIs so they could plug directly into our products.”
