Description

VMware, Inc. is an American publicly traded software company from California, USA. It provides cloud computing and virtualization software and services. It was one of the first commercially successful companies to virtualize the x86 architecture.

VMware's desktop software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS, while its enterprise software hypervisor for servers, VMware ESXi, is a bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

History

n 1998, VMware was founded by Mendel Rosenblum, Diane Greene, Scott Devine, Ellen Wang and Edouard Bugnion. Rosenblum and Greene, who are married, first met while at the University of California, Berkeley. Edouard Bugnion remained the chief architect and CTO of VMware until 2005, and went on to found Nuova Systems (now part of Cisco). For the first year, VMware operated in stealth mode, with roughly 20 employees by the end of 1998. The company was launched officially early in the second year, in February 1999, at the DEMO Conference organized by Chris Shipley. The first product, VMware Workstation, was delivered in May 1999, and the company entered the server market in 2001 with VMware GSX Server (hosted) and VMware ESX Server (hostless).

In August 2016 VMware introduced the VMware Cloud Provider website. New branch role is funneling cloud-related information as central source of cloud provider technology content. Thanks to a “services first” approach, cloud providers can find differentiated and monetizable services they can deliver leveraging VMware's platform. Now the latest case studies, demos, blogs, and architecture toolkits of VMware are available in one place.

Mozy was transferred to Dell in 2016 after the merger of Dell and EMC.

In April 2017, according to Glassdoor, VMware was ranked 3rd on the list of highest paying companies in the United States.

In Q2 2017, VMware sold vCloud Air to French cloud service provider OVH.

In August 2017, VMware and Amazon Web Services jointly announced the launch of VMware Cloud on AWS, a SaaS service delivering a vSphere compatible cloud in an AWS datacentre. VMware has since returned to the “hybrid cloud” naming convention to describe this use of consistent platform across on-prem and public clouds.

Conceptually similar services, but not managed directly by VMware, have since been announced by CloudSimple and Virtustream, hosted in Azure and by CloudSimple hosted in Google Cloud, built on the VMware Cloud Provider Program.
