Nexenta is proud to announce the results of its Server Hypervisor Market Share Survey. This survey was fielded in May and June 2012, and was sent to a panel of 4000 storage customers, community members and developers.
When asked to select all the server hypervisors they used today, respondents said that 79.4% used VMware. When asked to choose the primary server hypervisors, 69.3% of respondents said they were using VMware. Other hypervisors being primarily used today by respondents were Citrix, KVM and the Hyper-V hypervisors were mentioned, but none polled above 10%.
It appears from the survey that server hypervisor market share is not going to be substantially different 12 months from now. VMware remained the dominant hypervisor, at 78.4% when respondents were offered multiple choices. When asked to choose the primary server hypervisors in 12 months from now, 66.8% of respondents named VMware.
