VMware is losing its appetite for virtual machines, and is now focusing its efforts on cloud computing instead.
The company announced that it would be taking the plunge by shutting down its legacy VMware Fusion and virtualization business on October 1st, 2018, but has since rekindled the interest in virtualization.
VMware has not provided any specific numbers, but analysts expect the company to lose about a billion dollars on the investment.
The reason for VMware’s decision to shut down the business is a combination of two factors: the decline in the value of virtual machines and the impact that a disruption in the VMware Fusion business has had on its business model.
VMware Fusion has long been a popular choice for VMware, especially when it comes to running its datacenters.
The VM business is VMware’s core business, and has been one of its main growth drivers.
The virtual machines used to run the VM are powered by the VMware Embedded Server and VMkernel technologies, but they also offer support for other cloud platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, and Microsoft Azure.
In 2017, VMware launched the Virtual Machine Appliance, which is a virtual appliance that runs VMware virtual machines.
But VMware has been increasingly focusing on its own hybrid cloud platform called Hyper-V for the past several years.
In addition to offering the VM platform, Hyper-VD is the virtualization service that is used to connect virtual machines to VMware virtualization infrastructure.
Hyper-VM is currently available only on VMware Horizon, and VMware plans to release a new version of the product in 2019.
With Hyper-VE, VMware now offers a number of other cloud-based applications and technologies, such the Cloud Platform Management Server, Hyper Storage Manager, and the Cloud Management Server.
It is unclear exactly how much of VMware’s revenue comes from the VM business, but the company said in its Q4 2018 earnings call that it expects the business to lose a few billion dollars.
“The VM business was a real winner for VMware,” said Mark Wozniak, senior vice president of the Enterprise and Consumer Solutions group at HP, in a recent interview with CNBC.
“It’s the biggest value of all.
And it’s still going strong.”
Woznisak said that while VMware had not released specific numbers on the impact of VMware Fusion on its financials, the company expected its sales to decline because the demand for virtualization has waned.
But that could be a good thing for VMware because it could increase its revenue.
According to a report by Gartner, VMware is one of the most profitable companies in the world with $15.3 billion in revenue in 2017.
“Virtualization and the cloud computing boom is really a key driver for VMware revenue growth,” said Alex Giannapoulis, an analyst with Gartners.
“VMware has been a pioneer in the industry for a long time, and it has a lot of growth potential going forward.
It’s a good business for them to be in and they need to focus on their customers.”
A VMware spokesperson declined to comment.
