I haven’t done one of these in a while, and as it is a question that comes up regularly during customer conversations I figured I would share a nice quote from the VMware earnings call. But before I do I want to thank every VMware employee, partner and customer who helped us reaching this major milestone. Sometimes customers ask how invested VMware is in storage, well very invested. Determined to remain the number 1 player in the hyperconverged and hybrid cloud world, and the below numbers show why!
vSAN license bookings grew over 50% year-over-year in Q1 with a total customer count growing to over 20,000. (seekingalpha.com)
Yes, that is 20,000 customers indeed. Actually, more than 20k customers. Which, again, is a great success and would not have been possible without the help from you guys. So to thank all of you Cormac and I have decided to lower the price of our book temporarily. For 1 week, today until Friday the 7th, we have lowered the price of the book by ~50%. This means that on the Amazon US store the book will be 20 USD for the paper version, and only 5 USD for the ebook. So pick it up! (It may take a day for the price change to reach some of the Amazon stores…)
It seems the price has been pushed down to all “local” amazon websites. So go to your local website and pick up the book for 50% of the previous price. Links to most localized websites here:
