VMware Virtualization Software Market Size, Scope and Forecast

London, England, July 4th, 2020 — VMware is a software that offers virtualization and cloud computing services. Based in Palo Alto, California, the company was founded in 1998 as a subsidiary of Dell Technologies. Before becoming a subsidiary of Dell Technologies, VMware was acquired by EMC Corporation in 2004. In 2016, Dell Technologies acquired EMC and became the sole owner of VMware. VMware virtualization technology is based on its bare-metal hypervisor ESX/ESXi in an x86 system.

When virtualizing a server, a hypervisor is installed on the actual server to allow numerous virtual machines (VMs) to run on a single server. This technology allows each VM to operate an independent operating system (OS). Thus, a single server can support multiple OSes. One of the advantages of using VMware is that all VMs can share the information and resources within the same server, including RAM and networking. 

In 2019, VMware introduced containerized workloads support using Kubernetes cluster in the hypervisor. These workloads can be managed by the system managers like the way virtual machines are operated. Additionally, the DevOps teams can deploy containers, in the same manner, as previously.

Scott Devine, Diane Greene, Mendel Rosenblum, Edouard Bugnion, and Edward Wang were the founders of VMware. The first product was launched in 1999, and an upgraded ESX was released in 2001.

The current CEO of VMware is Patrick Gelsinger, who started in 2012. The company’s services include networking and security management tools, data center, and storage software.

VMware vSphere is the virtualization products suite from VMware. Before 2009, this product was called VMware Infrastructure. It includes the following components: ESXi, vCenter Server, vSphere Client, and vMotion. The current version of the product is vSphere 6.7, which has three main versions: Standard, Enterprise Plus, and Platinum. VMware also provides two three-server kits to serve small and medium-sized firms, vSphere Essentials and Essentials Plus. With VMware Cloud on AWS, clients can run a cluster of vSphere hosts with vSAN and NSX in the Amazon platform while managing the system with VMware tools.

VMware NSX is a virtual networking service offered by the company. It was created after the acquisition of Nicera in 2012. Through NSX, admins can virtualize numerous network factors, allowing them to deploy, develop, and configure virtual networks and switches using software instead of hardware. A software overlays the hypervisor through the VM system. It will enable administrators to divide a network into multiple virtual networks. Other networking technologies operating with the same approach are NSX-T Data Center, which allows network virtualization through ESXi and KVM as hypervisors. NSX-T Data Center can also enable Network Function Virtualization, which allows the running functions in a virtualized environment.

VMware vRealize Network Insight is another network operations and management tool that allows the admin to plan micro-segmentation and assess the VMware NSX health. This service was developed in 2016 after the acquisition of Arkin. 

In summary, DomainRooster VMware Servers offer numerous benefits to system users. It provides comprehensive security based on a zero-trust model compared to container systems like Kubernetes. There is also better sharing of resources and applications in a network. The data management is simplified and becomes manageable. VMware also increases the efficiency and agility of the data center systems.
