SWsoft reveals milestones and first half growth

I missed this in all mayhem. Anyways , I had been on vacation until the 14th August , and intentionally didn't want to blog around from the forest where we didn't have any internet connection.

The sales growth reflects accelerating customer demand for SWsoft virtualization and automation technology. The company's Parallels, Virtuozzo and other products now power more than 1.3 million virtual desktops and servers:

  • More than 130,000 physical servers are currently powered by SWsoft products.

  • More than 600,000 physical desktops and notebooks use Parallels software.

  • More than 700,000 virtual environments (or containers) are powered by Virtuozzo.

  • Nearly every Fortune 500 company uses Parallels virtual machine software.

"These results are clear indications of the useful innovation and unique value that SWsoft products offer hundreds of thousands of customers every day," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "Our company is differentiated as the only one delivering both OS virtualization and virtual machine software, along with a suite of automation software. Rather than creating new software platforms, SWsoft is focused on enhancing existing operating systems and applications for the benefit of customers and other software vendors."

Not bad at all, read the rest of the press release here.

    I think SWsoft is confused. They might have _sold_ this many licenses of Parallels Desktop for Mac, but make no mistake, what people actually _use_ nowadays is VMware Fusion.

    Not very surprising, given how Fusion trounces Parallels in benchmarks.
