Safe And Ready For Any, Say VMware Execs

Ever since Dell announced its plans of $67 billion acquisition EMC, making it the largest tech mergers of all time – tech enthusiasts and analysts have gone wild predicting how Dell will integrate EMC into its current offerings. One of the most discussed part of the Dell-EMC merger is VMware’s fate. While, some believe Dell’s biggest gain in the deal is VMware, the independent public company acquired by EMC, several others (including heads of some rival companies) opine would Dell destroy VMware.

According to Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst & CEO, Greyhound Research, “VMware is a good complement to Dell’s other offerings as businesses can expect a complete package deal out of Dell using EMC storage, Dell servers, and VMware.” However, he believes that a majority of corporate data centers, most IT departments are moving to cloud-computing services such as AWS and Microsoft’s Azure, as they do not use its software and thats where the risk lies.
