"In keeping with IBM's strong track record of combining innovation with open technologies, IBM welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with VMware and other industry participants to bring open standards to the virtualization marketplace and foster a closer integration between the two companies technologies. The combination of VMware virtual infrastructure and IBM xSeries virtualization and management will bring flexibility, scale and simplicity to enterprise data centers. IBM intends to work with VMware to explore xSeries virtualized solutions based on an open API environment."
"Virtualization is about making IT resources changeable matching ITsupply to business demand, which is key to becoming an Adaptive Enterprise, where business and IT are synchronized to capitalize on change. HP and VMware are committed to simplifying a user's IT infrastructure through consolidation and migration to the latest evolution in industry standard solutions. Through our collaboration with VMware in the Community Source Program and our joint efforts across our servers, management tools, storage solutions, consulting and support, we are helping enterprise customers drive down IT costs, increase business agility and free up resources for innovation."
"Standardization brings benefits to the entire industry. Dell continually innovates around standards to deliver on our Scalable Enterprise vision with products and services that help customers better utilize computing resources and keep costs low. We applaud VMware for opening its APIs to standardization to promote interoperability and flexibility in customer computing environments."
"Virtualization is a game-changing technology for the data center, and we expect VMware's open collaboration to help foster a broad set of well-integrated commercial solutions for AMD Opteron processor-based systems. VMware has significant market experience, focusing on robust and accelerated support for AMD's 'Pacifica' specification. We support VMware's lead in offering API's to further drive market adoption of virtualization. As a founder of the HyperTransport Consortium, founding member of the Trusted Computing Group and leader in defining x86-based 64-bit computing, AMD is a huge proponent of customer freedom and we support open standards for virtualization."
"More than ever standards are critical to innovation in enterprise infrastructures. Red Hat applauds the efforts of technology partners like VMware who are working to establish open, standards-based solutions. We are pleased to work with VMware, partners and the community to offer customers virtualization as a key component of their open source architectures."
"Supporting and working with key enterprise platforms like VMware virtual infrastructure is what sets Novell apart as a global data center infrastructure vendor. We are seeing strong adoption of VMware's proven, highly performant data center virtual infrastructure across Novell and SUSE LINUX customers, and we believe that VMware's commitment to open technology and common standards for virtualization will benefit the industry and customers alike."
