How strong is the Dell-VMware alliance and partnership right now?
[It] continues to grow and get stronger. VMware had another strong fourth quarter. We continue to partner closely together on hyperconverged infrastructure, on multi-cloud, all the work we’re doing around storage and data protection, the edge.
There are 80 million VMware workloads in the world. Some portion of them have already moved into multi-cloud with VMware Cloud on AWS, at Azure, at Google Cloud, at Oracle, IBM, 4,000 other partners -- and increasingly, customers are making that journey to embrace VMware Cloud Foundation as the multi-cloud framework. Customers are selecting Tanzu as the application development environment that allows them to develop apps in a location-agnostic way, especially now including the edge. We’re doing a lot of work with Nvidia with the AI-ready platform. There’s a lot on the agenda for VMware and Dell Technologies together.
What type of new CEO does VMware need to continue the Dell-VMware relationship?
To be clear, that’s not the only role of the VMware CEO. So I don’t want to over-index that. As we’re in the middle of the VMware CEO search, let me say, we have lots of great candidates. Stay tuned.
