The new cloud services business will work to combine Virtustream's Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform with EMC's Object Storage Services and Storage Managed Services, Cloud Managed Services from EMC's VCE subsidiary and VMware's vCloud Air offering.
Pat Gelsinger, VMware CEO, said the new business will offer hybrid cloud tools for customers that seek to manage both on-premise and off-premise information technology environments in the cloud.
VMware will also set up a second business unit that will work to provide cloud-based software platforms for cloud providers and help them promote hybrid cloud adoption among their clients through the integration of cloud offerings from Virtustream and VMware.
The new unit will offer VMware's vCloud Air Network and vCloud Director and Virtustream's software business offerings such as xStream tool for cloud management and Advisor Planning and Migration platform.
Ajay Patel, senior vice president at VMware, will lead that business.
