"VMware executed at a remarkable pace in 2007 as customer interest and partner attention increased several fold," said Diane Greene, president and chief executive officer of VMware.  "We begin 2008 with more than 100,000 customers, 500 technology and consulting partners, nearly 10,000 go-to-market partners, and more than 5,000 employees.  As others begin to enter the market, VMware and our partners are continuing to broaden and deepen our highly reliable end-to-end virtualization solutions.

"From the desktop to the datacenter, VMware products are providing significant capital and operational cost savings to customers," continued Greene. "VMware is enabling organizations of all sizes to deploy and manage two to three times the number of application workloads per administrator, while using four to 10 times less data center capacity. VMware's vision for the virtual datacenter is delivering tremendous value to our customers today and our product pipeline for 2008 promises to deliver much more."
