Amazon, VMware discussing data center software partnership, The Information says

Amazon Web Services (AMZN) could "shake up the enterprise software industry" if it goes forward with a potential plan being discussed to develop data center software with "one-time arch enemy" VMware (VMW), said The Information's Kevin McLaughlin. Such a plan, if it moves forward, would be AWS' first large-scale effort to develop software for corporate data centers, the report noted. Reference Link

VMware upgraded on 'strong earnings results' at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded VMware to Buy from Hold. Analyst Brad Reback upgraded the stock based on what he calls "a series of strong earnings results" by the company. He says that the company's newer products have grown at "healthy" rates, while the decline of its core vSphere business has been less intense than feared. The firm's checks indicate that hybrid clouds are being adopted more quickly than expected, added Reback, who raised his target on the shares to $109 from $96.
