Veeam launched V-index earlier this year. V-index, a free community resource, provides quarterly updates about the virtualization community.
This quarter, VDI hypervisor statistics are in place. Also this quarter, the number of entities surveyed this quarter increased to 578. As always, our respondents were not necessarily Veeam customers, Veeam prospects, or previous-quarter respondents. Find out more at www.V-index.com.*
Results worth noting this quarter include:
The average consolidation ratio was 5.1 to 1
VMware hypervisors took 67.7 % of the server virtualization workload
Reliability, application performance and data protection were top virtualization concerns
We recently interviewed Martin Turze from Vanson Bourne, the firm that conducts V-index research and reporting. Listen to our interview with Turze by clicking Veeam Community Podcast, episode 29.
