Gartner Magic Quadrant, 2011
Al Gillen – IDC
Source: Worldwide Systems Infrastructure Software Top 10 Predictions- Dec. 2011
“Microsoft has grasped the
fundamental truth about the
transition to cloud.”
“Poised against the current
features of VMware and
one-upped.”
“Microsoft claims 300 new
features… we wonder whether the
marketing guys left off a zero.”
