Pivotal CEO Maritz Teases ‘Linux For The Cloud’

Pivotal, a spin-off from VMware/EMC formed last December, will “later this year” launch Pivotal One, a software stack meant to support a future generation of big data, scale-out cloud operations, CEO Paul Maritz said in a rare public appearance.

Maritz offered his remarks at the kick-off address at the venture capital event, CloudBeat, in San Francisco on Monday. Throughout what was billed as a discussion of “An OS for The Cloud,” Maritz was poker-faced, explaining to the crowd that he held a great hand but couldn’t show it to them.
