2008 Virtualization Markets: Quest digests Visioncore


We will do our RTA (Real-Time Analysis) on the community blog of CEB and talk about the future (Near-Future to be precise) developments with such "implosive black-holing"phenomena. The trillion dollar question is: Where does the consumer stand in all this hyper-disruptive era).

I may also be writing for the cool domain owner Toon Vanagt of the one and only Virtualization.com soon. You'll be hearing from me soon on that one.

“We see virtualization as the next great frontier within IT,” said Vinny Smith, Quest CEO, “and the completion of the Vizioncore acquisition along with the recent additions of Provision Networks and Invirtus to the Quest family combine to position us as one of the leading pioneers in this emerging market space. As virtualization grows in importance for organizations, the demand for the kind of management products we’ve delivered for years in the database, application and Windows infrastructure areas will increase. Seeing this as the next logical step in helping customers manage the entire IT stack, we’ll be there once again to meet our customers’ needs.”

Quest also announced that Matt Dircks, recently named General Manager of its virtualization business, will initially focus on the Vizioncore product line as he develops the go-to-market plans for Quest’s growing portfolio of virtualization products. “We have a unique opportunity to meet the diverse needs of customers across many market segments with a portfolio of market-leading products, a highly skilled channel of value-added resellers, and a Quest team with demonstrated

excellence in serving enterprise customers on a global scale,” Dircks said. He added that Quest has also added industry visionary Scott Herold to the virtualization business as its Lead Architect. “Scott is a recognized expert in the field of virtualization. I look forward to leveraging his unique blend of practical experience, market knowledge, and visionary thinking across the entire virtualization business.”
