Virtualization Technology News and Information
EMC says it has no intention of selling VMware spoke with EMC's chief executive Joe Tucci and was told that the storage giant has no intention of selling off VMware.

“Our plans for VMware will be to continue to run it as a majority-owned company of EMC. We don’t have any plans to sell our 85pc share in the company,” Tucci affirmed.

“It will continue to be an independent company and work in the most open, even-handed way possible with all other players in the IT landscape that choose to be part of this great technology. EMC will do nothing that advantages itself exclusively with this technology.”

Tucci said that he believes that VMware is right at the heart of the major technology changes shaping the enterprise and consumer IT world over the next decade.

“VMware is right at the nexus of three of the future high growth areas in IT. The data centres of the future are going to be virtualised data centres and over 90pc of hardware will have a virtualisation layer and then, of course, infrastructure services on top of that. Services that help you provide business continuity, security and VMware have 20 of them today.

“Another growth area is going to be cloud computing and the third area is going to be virtual desktop infrastructure and VMware technology plays very well there. When you look at where some of the macro trends for IT in the future will be, VMware is well positioned.”
