Re: VCE run rate

So here's the deal. When VCE was a standalone entity; they could talk about their annual revenues; and that included compute, storage, networking, services, and packaging. And EMC would report the storage it sold, Cisco, their compute and network, etc.

But now that VCE is a wholly owned entity, you can't count twice. The storage in a vBlock either gets counted in the Core Technology Division tally or in the VCE tally, but not both.

So I think when Joe is talking revenue for VCE, he has to take the storage component previously reported twice into account.
