Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Run VMware
Small and medium-sized businesses run on VMware. In many cases, they have evaluated other offerings in the marketplace, but ultimately chose VMware.
"We considered other server virtualization platforms during our exploratory process, but security is a big concern for us and we felt that the secure foundation on which VMware’s ESXi platform is built upon, the ease of deployment and management, plus the number of applications per host density VMware offers made them the obvious choice. VMware is the brand that large and medium-size companies—in serious need of reliable virtual systems—choose. Beyond that, VMware solutions present remarkable benefits and are proven to be easy to integrate with most existing IT platforms."
Myron F. Steves and Company
"The first virtualization platform they tested was Microsoft Hyper-V. They found the technology cumbersome. ‘It took us a month to get it working,’ says Tim Moudry, Associate Director of IT, Myron Steves, adding that a high-maintenance solution wasn’t an option. ‘Ten years ago, we had around 13 IT people on staff. Today we have six, and we’re supporting the same number of employees.’ Then they tried VMware vSphere. ‘Within two days, it was fully functional,’ Moudry notes"
"VMware came top of our evaluation in terms of cost effectiveness and we were very impressed with the tools and features available with vSphere. Other solutions, such as Microsoft Hyper V, were overly complex and unsuitable for a business of our size."
"With VMware technology, we’re not limited to any one physical server, location or desktop. Resources are more flexible, resilient and better able to support reliable, high-quality service to county citizens…We felt VMware was the market leader. We’d looked at Hyper-V and other vendor solutions, but they were never serious contenders."
