VMware's a Keeper: EMC CEO

‘We will get more traction and more opportunities doing it the way we’re doing it’

CEO Joe Tucci said for what must be the umpteenth time Tuesday that EMC has no intention of parting with its roughly 84% majority stake in virtualization leader VMware.

The occasion was EMC's first analyst day in a dog's age.

EMC has been under pretty constant market pressure since VMware IPO'd 20 months ago to divest its position on the theory that the two companies would be more valuable split up.

Tucci, however, thinks "We will get more traction and more opportunities doing it the way we're doing it," claiming VMware helps sell EMC hardware.
