Maritz will be replaced by Pat Gelsinger, president and COO of EMC's information infrastructure products division. The EMC leadership watch continues.

Paul Maritz is out as VMware CEO, and he is being replaced by Pat Gelsinger, president and COO of EMC's information infrastructure products division, CRN has learned.
