Report: VMware Planning to Spin Out Cloud Computing Offerings

Unnamed sources “close to the deal” tell GigaOm that VMware and parent company EMC are planning to spin off several of cloud computing assets into a separate company. The newly formed company would include Cloud Foundry, which is VMware’s platform as a service division, as well as Project Rubicon, an EMC/VMware joint venture designed to develop an infrastructure as a service offering. In addition, the new company would own EMC’s Greenplum Big Data software, Chorus analytics software and two Hadoop distributions.

The sources say VMware might announce the spin-off when it reports quarterly earnings on July 23, or it might wait until VMworld in August.
