VMware doesn't do Crazy Eddy prices
Hey, Lorna, it takes a special business psychology to try to take market share through price cutting.... and VMware doesn't have it. On the contrary, its a premium spread company. VMware is leaving the outlying areas of virtualization to Microsoft and Citrix but dominating the data center and charging a premium for it. It's whole problem with getting into cloud is that it has little experience in operating infrstructure as a service, it's opening its own data centers to get some, but as it learns, Amazon and Microsoft keep pushing the break-even point lower. VMware will damage its quarterly earnings if it tries to compete on price, so don't hold your breath waiting for that one.
