      VMware

      Founded in 1998 in Palo Alto, California, VMware, Inc. is the first
      company to bring mainframe-class virtual machine technology to
      industry-standard computers. Based on patented and patent-pending
      technology, VMware virtual machine software simplifies computing
      infrastructure and dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of
      delivering enterprise services. VMware delivered its first product,
      VMware(tm) Workstation in 1999. The company entered the server market
      in 2001 with two products - VMware GSX Server(tm) and VMware ESX server
      (tm) - for departmental and enterprise servers.

      Today, VMware is the global leader of virtual machine software for
      Intel-compatible computers, with more than 1 million registered users
      spread across 80 percent of the Global 100. Customers are using VMware
      software throughout the enterprise - from the desktop to the data
      center - for server consolidation, workload management, and application
      development, testing and deployment. By running services in virtual
      machines spread across one or more PCs, VMware customers have reduced
      the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their computing infrastructure
      from 50 to 80 percent.
