EMC to Buy Software Firm VMware for $635 Million in Cash

Data-storage giant EMC Corp. will buy VMware for $635 million. VMWare is the leading vendor of “virtual hardware infrastructure,” which allows data center managers to partition servers (and desktops) into seperately-managed parts. VMWare is also important for the OS community because it helps a user run several OSes simultaneously on one machine. EMC’s acquisition will certainly steer the product even more toward the enterprise space. Wonder what will happen to the workstation product?
