Comparing Search Trends of Hyper-V, ESX, XenServer

Below is a map from Google Trends on the searches that people have been doing for the leading hypervisors. This is a trend view of the past 12 months. Notice that –

  • Citrix observed a nice surge to pull it away once the announcement of the availability of free XenServer was made (Point “F” in the diagram)
  • Hyper-V along with VMware has steadily climbed in the search interest levels. The overall upward trend of these 3 searches indicate to me that virtualization is something that people are still very much interested in, despite of the economic slowdown.

What are your takeaways?
