In August, enterprise software company VMware Inc. announced an agreement to acquire cloud platform company Pivotal Software Inc. for $2.7 billion. The deal—which will enable VMware to expand its cloud offering—is expected to close by the end of the year, VMware CEO Patrick Gelsinger announced Tuesday at the company’s annual conference in Barcelona. VMware is neutral, Gelsinger told Calcalist in an interview. Its software can work with various vendors, such as HP, Lenovo, IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, and SAP. The company’s technology enables collaboration with many of the rivals of its parent company, Dell, and though it has expanded from its initial specialization, virtualization, it still operates only in the infrastructure sector.
