VMware’s smoking, Microsoft opens up

Third quarter sales for EMC’s hot virtualization subsidiary were up 86 percent to $188.5 million, its biggest surge in more than a year.

EMC’s overall sales were up 19 percent, according to today’s earnings release.

The quasi-local player in VMware’s space is XenSource.

Both companies are based in Palo Alto, Calif., but XenSource is allied with Microsoft. It also recently opened an R&D office in Redmond that’s led by former ‘softies Frank Artale and Gordon Mangione.

Both companies also have open souce credentials, so it’s no wonder Microsoft is opening up its own virtualization technology, although today’s announcement in Brussels may be aimed more at European regulators than customers and developers.
