KVM? Us? Amazon erases new hypervisor from AWS EC2 FAQ

Adam 52 Silver badge

AWS hasn't switched any significant amount of workload yet (as far as we know). Google might use a heavily modified KVM but they don't use Qemu so there's very little point in comparison with VMware.

Agreed that VMware doesn't look good a mega scale, but for a smaller outfit (i.e. anyone with < $10bn revenue) where you don't have a dedicated engineering team to continually tweak the hypervisor and build your own management tools then it's still a viable option if you really don't want to do "cloud".
