But more interesting is which will be the impact on VMware and its vision. This is the public answer from Pat Gelsinger to all VMware’s partners:

Dear Valued Partner,

Today Dell Technologies announced the biggest merger in IT history—a truly historic day. The new company creates strong capabilities in the fastest growing areas of the industry including hybrid cloud, software-defined data center, converged infrastructure, platform–as–a–service, data analytics, mobility, and cybersecurity. As Aristotle said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” and this acquisition brings that whole to life for our partners and joint customers.

We are extremely proud and excited to join the new Dell Technologies family of companies as a strategically aligned business. We will continue to operate as an independent, publicly traded company. VMware will continue to invest in and grow its thriving, open ecosystem of global partners. Our partner network is one of our strongest assets and a key differentiator in the market.

Our mission and strategy remain unchanged: to provide you, our partners, with significant value by accelerating our joint customers’ digital transformation through software and services that let customers run, manage, secure, and connect all of their applications across clouds and devices.

Together, we face a significant opportunity ahead. The breadth and scale of Dell Technologies will enable us to build on our combined success and develop even more valuable solutions to delight our joint customers across the globe.
