EMC + VMW = $90 billion - The math: $70 billion increase in total Market Cap in less than 180 days
i am a systems architect. Poor adoption in production? Whatever you have been smoking - pass it over here. Every major financial in NYC either has some VMware in production or had plans to implement it. Performance degradation is expected and accepted.. the penalty is not that high. 8-10% from our tests across different platforms. Network performance degradation is NOT noticeable, as long as you dedicate NICs to VMs. Nobody really cares about VMware on desktop - it's all about the server market (ESX), which DOES have it's embedded OS.. and if you install it at least once you would know that.
