If you want to know why EMC sold its Ionix intellectual property and staff to VMware, look no further than CA’s recent decision to buy 3Tera. While VMware is nothing if not popular, it would have a very difficult time competing against large systems-management vendors with legitimate cloud-computing tools. For example, once all of CA integrates all of its new pieces, it will be able to manage application deployment, monitoring, migration, scalability and much more across both physical and virtual resources. With the Ionix products now at its disposal (as well as SpringSource and Zimbra), VMware’s stock as a data-center-wide vendor is sure to rise.
