VMware Gets Intel Investment - SWsoft Says 'Been There - Two Years Ago'

With all the news publications talking about the Intel investment into VMware and the approaching IPO of the giant virtualization company, SWsoft reminds us that they too have had an investment from Intel... two years ago!

Ilya Baimetov writes on SWsoft's official blog:

"Having Intel's support is very important and extremely valuable. We know because we received it, along with investment from Intel Capital, back in 2005, and this support allowed us to deliver better products, faster. We view the VMware IPO and Intel's investment as good news for the virtualization industry and all related vendors because it emphasizes the high level of interest and market opportunity. It's worth mentioning that SWsoft is a clear #2 virtualization vendor:

  • SWsoft software runs on 130,000 servers and 500,000 desktops;
  • SWsoft virtualization business has a growth rate of more than 600%, as compared with VMware's 98% percent – according to IDC, the fastest growing virtualization vendor."
