VMworld conference sponsored by VMware is an exhibition of neutrality, it is most important to already become network industry at present Virtual Exhibition. There are about 200 manufacturers, there is cooperative partner of VMware, there are its rivals too, will participate in this VMworld exhibition held in San Francisco soon.
But ever praised Microsoft and Citrix of VMworld highly, criticizing VMware limits the competition in the respect participating in the exhibition inequitably, so determine not to support again.
In Microsoft, Citrix two Las Vegas from September of 2008 and France VMworld exhibition in February of 2009, once ” The gold medal sponsor ” .
But at next week’s VMworld exhibition, Microsoft and Citrix are both no longer sponsors, and only the exhibiter in exhibition of the small-scale. According to the statement of Citrix, VMware has refused it at the exhibition of this year as the application which the sponsor can offer, the reason is that two companies have not signed the formal cooperative agreement. In addition, Microsoft claims, VMworld has made the new restriction to the exhibiter, this makes it unable to show its System Center Virtual Machine Manager SCVMM on VMworld 2008; Citrix charges too, VMware requires it to rearrange time table of Citrix technologist’s summit by force, in case that conflict with the summit of VMworld.
VMware denies its policy about sponsor and exhibiter violates the place of the general trade exhibition professional etiquette, and the purpose to claim to do so is not for restraining the competition manufacturer from showing their own technology at the exhibition.
But one spokesman of Citrix claim ” the intersection of VMworld and the intersection of exhibition and guide prohibit Citrix by official order make sponsors already in E-mail to give Network World. ”
” VMworld is by the exhibition of operation of a company, ” Citrix marketing Vice President Kim Woodward says in a statement. “By end moment, it has the right to change the rule of any exhibition according to one’s own meaning. Citrix respects this, will totally follow the exhibition contract signed between us and handle affairs too. If the exhibiter requires a more open exhibition, then they must provide for VMware and feedback the suggestion directly, or vote clear-cutly with the foot. ”
This the same as position of Citrix of Microsoft is not strange, because two companies have close fictitious compound that make the relation, coveting and capturing the position of VMware on x86 virtual market. Because the market competition intensified last year, Microsoft and strategy of Citrix were to more closely combine their own management products, so that the customer can use a management two different hypervisors of managing the platform.
