VMware’s Tod Nielsen Goes to the Pivotal Spin-Off

Tod Nielsen will cease being co-president of VMware’s application platform unit and join Paul Maritz

A two-month-old SEC filing that’s just been unearthed by GigaOm says that Tod Nielsen will cease being co-president of VMware’s application platform unit to join his old colleague from Microsoft, EMC’s chief strategy officer Paul Maritz, who’s running the new joint VMware-EMC Big Data-and- cloud-applications spin-off, the Pivotal Initiative.

Nielsen was involved with Cloud Foundry, the PaaS technology that’s been turned over to Pivotal.

The effort has also gotten some widgetry from the EMC-owned Greenplum as well as VMware’s Cetas analytics and vFabric.

More about Pivotal is supposed to be revealed March 13 in New York.

It should be a real company by Q2.
