A Year of VMware Acquisitions

It has been a busy year for VMware in terms of acquisitions. This followed an almost equally busy 2010, during which it bought both SpringSouce, incorporating its technology into vFabric, and Zimbra from Yahoo, which it has kept separate.

Most of the 2011 buys we have covered in various posts here, but a few escaped our attention. I thought it would be a nice year-end post to review where things stand with each technology. By comparison, Google this past year acquired more than two dozen companies.

Things have been quiet the rest of the year, although quite a few new products have been announced around the twin VMworlds for the fall. And Let’s not forget that VMware is still a subsidiary of EMC, and this year saw EMC transfer the controlling assets of online backup vendor Mozy to VMware.

More details on support for these acquired products can be found here on VMware’s site.
