New Magic Quadrant from Gartner for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure

On Thursday Gartner released their 2013 Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure, in which they positioned Microsoft as a “Leader” in the industry.

For anyone unfamiliar with the format of the graphic below, the Magic Quadrant is used by Gartner to present an apples-to-apples review of the capabilities of vendors in a specific part of a market. While the position of each vendor on the graphic is important, it’s also important to read the strengths and cautions for each vendor in the report linked above.

It’s great to see recognition like this from a third party like Gartner; Microsoft has been consistently moving ‘up’ and to the ‘right’ in the Magic Quadrant graphic for four consecutive years. I believe our positioning as a “Leader” confirms that Windows Server 2012, System Center 2012, and Hyper-V are powerful options for enterprise-scale virtualization.

I recommend downloading the full report (compliments of Microsoft) and reading it in detail.
