VCPs, VCAPs AND VCDXs around the world - 2021 edition!

UPDATE - March 19th 2021: Added the VCDX version.

For a number of years now, VMware have published infographics about the distribution of VCPs, VCAPs, and VCDXs around the world.

The 2021 versions can be found by clicking on the images:

Some interesting observations:

  • There are now more than 100,000 VCPs in the USA, but only an additional 20,000 or so across the rest of the Americas
  • Eight countries now have more than 10,000 VCPs!
  • Ireland has 761 VCPs per million of the population, more than double that of the USA
  • While EMEA has the lowest number of VCPs it has the highest number of VCAPs
