Nexenta Server Hypervisor Market Share Survey indicates vSphere remains dominant hypervisor

Nexenta is proud to announce the results of its Server Hypervisor Market Share Survey. This survey was fielded in May and June 2012, and was sent to a panel of 4000 storage customers, community members and developers.

When asked to select all the server hypervisors they used today, respondents said that 79.4% used VMware. When asked to choose the primary server hypervisors, 69.3% of respondents said they were using VMware.  Other hypervisors being primarily used today by respondents were Citrix, KVM and the Hyper-V hypervisors were mentioned, but none polled above 10%.

It appears from the survey that server hypervisor market share is not going to be substantially different 12 months from now. VMware remained the dominant hypervisor, at 78.4% when respondents were offered multiple choices. When asked to choose the primary server hypervisors in 12 months from now, 66.8% of respondents named VMware.
