VMware secures another technology award

VMware secures another technology award

Virtualisation solutions group VMware has seen one of its products named as one of the best products of 2008.

VMware ESXi was introduced to the market in 2007 as a hypervisor - one which the manufacturer said was the only not to include a general-purpose operating system.

It was announced as a product of the year for 2008 by SearchServerVirtualisation.com and was presented with the gold award in the virtualisation platforms category.

The vice-president of VMware's server business unit Raghi Raghuram said the title reflects ESXi's scalability and "unparalleled performance".

"[It serves as] a powerful foundation for data center virtualisation, application and infrastructure management and automation, and enterprise desktop virtualisation," he explained.

The company claims the product offers "unmatched" security levels and the highest consolidation ratios in its 32MB package, bringing users the lowest cost per virtual machine and total cost of ownership.

Earlier this month, VMware announced its infrastructure had been awarded with two titles at the Cloud Computing Conference & Expo Show Awards in San Jose, US.

The system was named best overall cloud product and best cloud platform.ADNFCR-1984-ID-19020388-ADNFCR
