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.
Multiple sources familiar with the situation confirmed the CEO switch to CRN Monday. But it is unclear if Maritz, who has led VMware since 2008, will be taking another position within EMC or leaving the company.
A VMware spokesperson declined to comment, citing company policy of not responding to "rumors or speculation." EMC did not respond to a request for comment.
