VMW has a great niche in the market but others seeing the growth of this area are getting into the picture so the dominance in this area should be less if some of the big boys want to get more involved in this area - like MSFT

Sales have increased at an annualized rate of 21% since 2007. Operating margins remain near all-time highs. FCF/share shows a strong upward trajectory.

The company holds very little debt. The margin of safety here is wide.

P/E and P/S figures show the company may currently be relatively expensive, but this is mitigated by the sales growth trend and the relative lack of solvency risk.
