VMware dominance to remain despite contest

Errol Rasit, principal research analyst at Gartner, labeled groups such as the Open Virtual Alliance (OVA), which include Red Hat, IBM, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Intel, and OpenStack, with notable members including Cisco Systems, Rackspace Hosting and Citrix, as “credible”. Competition from these coalitions, he noted in a phone interview, was “good for customers” in terms of lowering costs and offering choice. The OVA was announced on May 17, according to a report by ZDNet Asia’s sister site, ZDNet UK. It aims to make the open-source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor the fundamental layer on which the cloud is virtualized, it stated.
