This IDC Market Note discusses IDC's perspective on the recent announcement by VMware that it intends to acquire Datrium, subject to regulatory approvals. While much of the IT market is suffering from a decline in spending because of COVID-19, IDC believes that DRaaS and DPaaS solutions will continue to see strong demand. This could be a silver lining in an otherwise tight spending environment. This acquisition by VMware is timely.
