Virtualization has less than 1% market share in Korea

ETNews is reporting an interesting statistic about the diffusion of virtualization technologies in the Korean market: less than 0.5% so far, with VMware as the only player.

Both Microsoft and Citrix are approaching the country with their hypervisors so the market share is expected to surpass 1% (no mention of when this is expected to happen).

In the whole 2007 collected several feedbacks reporting that the whole APAC market may become a serious playground for virtualization between the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009.

A confirmation of this may come from some key steps that some virtualization players took in these months like the Citrix OEM agreement with Lenovo.

Hopefully the Japanase edition of, launched last month, may accelerate the customers evangelization and technology adoption.
