Gartner Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure 2014. VMware vSphere Leads

Recently Gartner published their annual Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualisation [2014].

A lot has happened in the virtualisation / cloud space, and VMware certainly remains the overall leader in 2014. When comparing 2011-2014, we see Citrix move into the niche player’s quadrant and VMware / Microsoft remain stable in the leaders quadrant. A new entrant for 2014 is Huawai and their hypervisor – FusionSphere which is mainly running on Huawai server hardware currently.
