A couple of weeks back, we announced our Q2 financial results. If you missed it, you can read the transcript from Seeking Alpha. Overall, Q2 was a great quarter overall and for our the End-User Computing team.
A couple of things worth highlighting from Q2:
- We closed the largest View deal ever – Q2 saw the continuation of previous quarters momentum for View. In fact, ee closed a major retailer in the US, which was the largest deal for VDI overall with well over 100,000 seats. We will be working with this company to help them manage their remote, in-store desktops. This is an exciting deal and one that speaks to a leading use case for VDI.
- Customers moving from POC to large deployments – Another highlight is the growth in the number of existing customers, coming back and buying more. While this is definitely a good trend for us, we also think that it is a good sign for the industry at large as VDI takes hold, and moves into an expanding number of use cases. One customer worth mentioning is the largest bank in Tokyo. I have shared some info with you before about their deployment in a previous post. They have aggressively been deploying additional users on View and as of today, their deployment has reached 20,000 users.
As I written before, this is still an early market. New customers are always interested in referenceable customers. VMware View leads the way in terms of public customer references with over 1,000 seats, which is a testament to the great customer adoption that VMware View is experiencing.
Also, last week we also issued an announcement highlighting some great customers stories in the Education vertical as well. Worth checking out if you get a chance.
