Oracle VM gains the Challenger Position in Gartner Magic Quadrant

Yesterday Oracle, through its Virtualization Blog, announced the new placement of its Oracle VM in the new Gartner x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure Magic Quadrant.

The application-driven approach to virtualization that Oracle has kept so far seems to be supported from this result, Oracle itself claims to be supported by strong customer momentum gains originated from the low cost licensing model and easy software access.

Quoting from the press release:

Oracle continues to focus on delivering a strong integrated virtualization with Oracle VM and the managed stack in the following areas:

  • Integrated management with Oracle VM and all layers of the Oracle stack from hardware to virtualization to cloud
  • Application-Driven virtualization with Oracle VM templates for rapid enterprise application deployment
  • Certified Oracle applications on Oracle VM
  • Complete stack solution offering more values to customers
