Microsoft and Citrix Embrace Heterogeneity, VMware Hunkers Down

Most large enterprises have mixed operating system environments, running at least two of Windows, Linux and Unix. And in the future the same may be equally true when it comes to hypervisors: many enterprises could soon be using a combination of virtualization technologies, running at least one of Hyper-V, Xen or KVM in addition to VMware. Why? One reason is that many organizations are interested in cloud computing, and in particular setting up private clouds. Solutions built on OpenStack or Project Olympus — Citrix’s implementation of OpenStack — may well be more cost-effective than comparable VMware solutions.
