VMware's growth under Paul Maritz

SAN FRANCISCO — During his final VMworld keynote this morning, outgoing VMware  CEO Paul Maritz shared these figures showing how much VMware and its community grew under his four-year tenure from 2008 to 2012:

Intel-based servers virtualized: 25% to 60%

VMware Certified Professionals: 25,000 to 125,000

VMworld attendees: 13,000 to more than 20,000

Once new VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger took the stage, he said more than 90% of servers will be virtualized within the next three years. Maritz received a nice standing ovation from the crowd when he left the stage.
