After attending the VMWorld 2011 conference, listening to the great keynote by Paul Maritz, and along with doing a lot of reading (working on vSphere 5 upgrades for clients), I have come across a number of very interesting statistics.

  • 1 new VM every 6 second
    (Faster than rate of babies born in US)
  • More thank 20 million VMs around the world
    (If they were physicaly machines, would stretch 2x length of the Great Wall of China)
  • There are 5.5 vMotions per second
    (More than number of planes taking off globally)
  • More than 800,000 vSphere admins
