VMware and Pure Storage

We value VMware’s expertise, but part of the OpEx advantage of the VMware solution is that our small staff can work with this technology without hundreds of hours of training and without requiring extensive knowledge transfer from consultants.

Greg Wolverton, CIO at ARcare.
VMware and Tegile

… we did our due diligence and talked to Microsoft, Citrix, and others. Frankly, [Microsoft] Virtual PC was out of the question—it simply was not an enterprise-class product. My team also evaluated Citrix, and in the end they recommended VMware Horizon with View. The decision was based on technical capabilities, the reputation of the vendor, price, roadmap and other factors. VMware simply had the best total package.

Vincent Lo, Vice President, Network Application and Support at Bank of Stockton
