Bookmark and Share

We all know that cloud computing is driven by virtualization. However, considering many virtualization vendors and products in market we cannot easily gauge what exactly happening from perspective of users’ interests. I have tried to put together a test using Google Insights for search and Google Trends for different virtualization solutions available.

And the results are in.

Web Search Interest: "vmware vsphere", kvm, "microsoft hyper-v", xen, "vmware esx" 
Worldwide, 2004 - present

Web Search Interest: vsphere, kvm, hyper-v, xen, esx
Worldwide, 2004 - present

This one is interesting as VirtualBox seems to be way ahead from other peers. I tried to craft into desktop virtualization though xen and kvm are also included.

Web Search Interest: “vmware workstation”, kvm, virtualbox, xen, “parallel desktop”
Worldwide, 2004 - present

And approximately same results observed from Google Trends.
