VMware Apologizes for Dishonest FUD Video of Hyper-V on YouTube

Posted on June 14, 2009 at 11:57 am

For those of you who have been following the “VMware FUD Fiasco” blog thread (Part 1Part 2Part 3 & Part 4), it’s been an unfortunate incident that has gone on far too long. However, I’m pleased to report that we’ve finally reached resolution and it’s time to close this chapter. What resolution am I talking about? Specifically,

VMware has admitted their mistake, apologized and removed the video.

Let’s start with VMware’s apology and then I’ll discuss our testing and results.

VMware Apology From Scott Drummonds

“I made a bad call.

About a month and a half ago, I anonymously posted a YouTube video depicting a controversial test of Microsoft’s Hyper-V.  The video was a bit hyperbolic in its dramatization of Hyper-V’s reliability.

Unfortunately, my intention to stir the pot with eye-poking banter has put my credibility and by association VMware’s credibility in question among some of you.  For this I apologize.
