EMC, VMware And Friends Launch Pivotal
EMC and VMware formally launched Pivotal, the spinoff company associated with the Pivotal Initiative the pair originally revealed last December. Both companies have committed key existing technologies, people and programs focused on big data and cloud application platforms to the Pivotal organization, which will be led by former VMware CEO, Paul Maritz. The groups aligned with Pivotal include EMC’s Greenplum and Pivotal Labs organizations, and VMware’s vFabric (including Spring and Gemfire), Cloud Foundry and Cetas organizations.
Rather than an energetic startup with improbable ambitions, Pivotal is a new company formed to help established enterprises address new challenges and solve next generation problems posed by the Consumer Grade Internet. From where we stand, Pivotal appears well-positioned to do just that.
