VMware has invested heavily this year in Kubernetes to take the market by storm. Can you talk about Dell Technologies’ Kubernetes strategy?

First of all, we’re putting Kubernetes right into vSphere. We showed that on stage at VMworld and gave demos of it—that’s coming very very soon to the 600,000 vSphere customers that we have around the world. It’s incredibly powerful to be able to manage virtual machines and Kubernetes clusters all from the same console and framework that all these customers are already used to. It’s a big endorsement from VMware of Kubernetes and certainly the acquisition of Heptio and now the acquisition of Pivotal, which will also close pretty soon—that just strengthens our capability. We’ve had some of the new hires. We have two of the three original creators of Kubernetes working at VMware. The Dell Technologies Cloud and our infrastructure solutions are all very tightly integrated together with VMware based on the VMware Cloud Foundation, what we’re doing with the Pivotal Container Service—all of that rides on vSphere.
