Theoretically, a VMware acquisition for Dell would prime that, making it the most important expertise deal ever. Dell acquired greater than 80 % of VMware when it accomplished its deal for EMC in 2016. VMware’s platform virtualization software program was a key motive Dell pursued EMC two years in the past.
Whereas VMware’s income has constantly grown every year, that has slowed. Annual gross sales rose 6.7 % in 2016 from 2015 after six consecutive years of double-digit proportion development. Nonetheless, internet revenue of $1.2 billion was an all-time excessive for the corporate for 2016, and 2017 full-year estimates recommend the corporate will prime that mark.
Spokespeople for Dell and VMware declined to remark.
