VMware Wins PC Magazine Technical Excellence Award

Nov 14, 2000, 00:00 ET from VMware Inc.

    PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- PC Magazine has named
 VMware Inc. (www.vmware.com) the winner of its year 2000 Technical Excellence
 Award for software.  The award was announced during the magazine's annual
 awards ceremony last night at Comdex in Las Vegas.
     PC Magazine cited VMware software's ability to run multiple operating
 systems simultaneously or multiple instances of the same operating system on
 the same machine. The editors noted, "Unlike emulators, which merely interpret
 foreign applications (and therefore run slowly), VMware manages resources
 efficiently and separately. In fact, if you have plenty of RAM, applications
 running on these virtual machines will perform as well as those running on
 actual machines. And each virtual machine runs in its own protected space, so
 crashes in one VM won't affect other VMs that are running."
     "VMware has more than 500,000 registered users in more than 100 countries
 around the world and everyday they remind us of the power and versatility of
 our technology and the products we develop that use it," said Diane Greene,
 founder, president and chief executive officer of VMware. "We are very pleased
 that one of our industry's most respected publications also has recognized our
 technical excellence."
     VMware is a leading provider of application and service delivery platforms
 for desktop personal computers and servers. Based on innovative virtual
 machine technology developed at Stanford University, VMware products allow
 single computers to run simultaneously multiple, protected sessions on any
 combination of Linux, Windows NT and Windows 2000, offering new levels of
 flexibility, safety and security. VMware's customers include developers,
 information technology professionals and providers of hosted applications and
 services over the Internet or corporate intranets. VMware is a privately held
 company based in Palo Alto, California. For more information, please visit the
