VMware Killing It!

When Microsoft shipped Hyper-V, it was supposed to be the beginning of VMware's long, inexorable descent into computer oblivion. Hyper-V has been out a while and already has, according to some, about a quarter of the hypervisor market. That combined with a tough economy must spell disaster for the VMware balance sheet, right?

Wrong! VMware knocked it out of the park this past quarter with revenue up 25 percent. Like Microsoft, which reported increased revenues, VMware profits were also down.

Sounds like you IT whizzes are getting better at driving down prices!
