Palo Alto, Calif.-based VMware reported revenue of $1.123 billion, up 22% over the prior year's quarter, beating its guidance range of $1.1 billion to $1.12 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast earnings of 66 cents a share and revenue of $1.11 billlion this quarter. The company will announce final earnings for the second quarter on Monday, July 23.

Tucci noted that, after leaving VMware, Maritz will play an integral role at EMC.

"Paul Maritz is one of the brightest minds in the IT industry. He has created a compelling and lasting vision that has transformed VMware from a technology leader in virtualization to a category leader in cloud computing," Tucci said in the press release. "Paul leaves VMware in an enviable strategic position and in great financial health. We are delighted to have Paul join the leadership team at EMC and look forward to working with him as he leads our technology strategy and directs our efforts on Big Data and emerging applications."
