+ - VMware, EMC Shakeup Hints At Data Center's Future->

Submitted by

gManZboy writes "What's really behind the leadership switch that will see Paul Maritz become EMC chief strategist and Pat Gelsinger become VMware CEO? It's EMC's need to push its vision for the software-defined data center.

The EMC/VMware vision for a "software-defined data center" takes a conservative approach. Think of it as pulling existing legacy systems into one management console without worrying about the IT changes a cloud environment demands, like letting employees self-provision their computing capacity or imposing a strict environment limited to x86 servers. The software-defined data center message lets EMC/VMware cater to both legacy and newly built, cloud-oriented, applications without VMware or EMC needing to tell customers which camp they should be in. Here's a close look at the pieces that EMC and VMware need to work closely on together, to make such a data center a reality."
