Enterprise IT is a segment that has been underserved, says Ignition Partners’ Frank Artale, so Ignition launched a new fund to attack that opportunity.
There was lots of chit-chat on what VMware could/should/would/will do about its Amazon public cloud problem, and Amazon raised a ruckus with a free preview of Trusted Advisor.
With its newly minted Pivotal Initiative, EMC and VMware are cordoning off key technologies to attack the big data and cloud application spaces. Paul Maritz, EMC’s chief strategy officer and former VMware CEO, will spearhead this effort.
The decision by VMware and parent EMC to spin out VMware’s “tier 2” technologies into a separate subsidiary shows that they’re under pressure to compete with massive cloud providers like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft in the enterprise.
VMware plans to turn over SpringSource, Cloud Foundry, GemStone and other non-core technologies over to a new EMC-owned subsidiary, GigaOM has learned.

VMWare is going through an equivalent of executive convulsion. Paul Maritz, who was CEO for past four years have been replaced by EMC executive Pat Gelsinger. Maritz takes on new role as a chief strategist for EMC. Here are some video conversations with Maritz.

Diane Greene has joined the board of directors of Google announced today. Greene was the CEO of VMware but was replaced by current CEO Paul Maritz a few years ago. Green, who was the co-founder of VMWare is quite plugged in to the Silicon Valley ecosystem.
