VMware says users run away screaming after trying OpenStack
VMware has reported a cracking first quarter for 2016, with year-on-year revenue growth of five per cent making for a US$1.59bn revenue haul for the three months to March 31st.
Not everything is rosy down VMware way: compute virtualisation sales were off ten percent and revenue down one point, as expected. Licence sales ticked up a little, but revenue from licence sales fell. GAAP net income for the first quarter was $161 million, or $0.38 per diluted share. That’s down from the $196 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, from 2015’s first quarter.
