Todd Paoletti, vice president of product marketing at Pivotal, thinks the company’s new cloud and data services will enable more data-driven applications and easier analysis.
Big data isn’t an afterthought anymore as Pivotal introduces a commercially supported Cloud Foundry distribution with multiple data services to run on top of it.
Sources confirm that EMC and VMWare will be putting their cloud-related businesses, including Cloud Foundry, into a new unit led by Paul Maritz. It will not be an independent company, however.
VMWare is planning to spin off Cloud Foundry and a number of its other products into a separate division owned by corporate parent EMC.
