Major VMware Announcements

First, Gigamon breaks news of the Rubicon group at VMware and a possible split of Cloud Foundry and Greenplum from their respective companies – read more here. Next, TechCrunch announces that Paul Maritz is out as CEO of VMware and that EMC COO Pat Gelsinger will be replacing him – read more here. Of course the latter news begs the question, where is Paul going? As has been rumored for some time, EMC CEO Joe Tucci is planning to retire so that is one potential option. Another would be leading the Cloud Foundry / Greenplum spin-off. Wow, what a day! Oh, and I guess Office 2013 was released today if anyone cares…
