The EMC Cloud Vision

David Goulden -- CEO of EMC's Information Infrastructure business, known as EMC II -- envisions a hybrid cloud future.

Goulden asserts that adoption of hybrid cloud, and saving customers money by doing it, won't happen without "some reductions in hardware." He's arguing that customers will run their business partially in the cloud and partially along traditional IT lines, moving workloads back and forth between traditional, on-premise systems and cloud services as needed.

Goulden's blog comes just weeks after EMC's truce with activist investor Elliott Management came to an end. Elliott has been pressuring EMC to spin off its VMware unit and make other changes in order to increase shareholder value.

So far, EMC has resisted those efforts, saying the company's value will be greater as an amalgam of businesses that can service the kind of hybrid future Goulden predicts.
