In Forrester's 40-criteria evaluation of private cloud solution vendors, we identified the nine most significant software providers — BMC Software, Cisco Systems, Citrix, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, Red Hat, and VMware — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals select the optimum private cloud solution. I&O pros can customize criteria weightings to align with their own private cloud initiative. It is a refresh to Forrester's "The Forrester Wave™: Private Cloud Solutions, Q4 2013" report.
