Maritz Reportedly No Longer CEO of VMware
GigaOm is as well running a story saying VMware, a subsidiary of EMC, is considering spinning out its open source, increasingly cloud-neutral Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service as a separate EMC subsidiary along with EMC's Greenplum Hadoop/Big Data business and the nascent VMware- EMC Infrastructure-as-a-Service joint venture Project Rubicon.
It thinks that Tod Nielsen, co-president of VMware's application platform business, or Mark Lucovsky, VP of engineering in charge of Cloud Foundry, could be put in charge on the spin-out, aimed at building a cloud computing services company to compete with Google, Microsoft and Amazon.
It said, "If Maritz is come to think of it out at the company afterwards four years at the helm, it may be because VMware has let its lead on virtualization - its core business - slide during pursuing enterprise applications and higher-level software. Instead of buying things like Zimbra from Yahoo, VMware needed to keep its eye on the management of scaled-out enterprise infrastructure, focusing on building software to monitor and manage multiple cloud environments and span hybrid clouds."
Last week EMC said its vice-chairman Bill Teuber would get responsibility for strategy and business development in emerging markets during Bill Scannell replaces him as president of global sales and customer operations.
