RulerOf writes: TechNewsWorld is carrying an article, detailing that Intel has made an investment in VMWare for $218.5 million in anticipation of VMWare's imminent IPO. With an expected value of $23-25 a share, VMWare's IPO shows a value of $950 million. This investment brings Intel to an approximately 13% ownership of the EMC subsidiary, and helps to strengthen the ties between the two companies, as, according to the article, "VMware's virtualization platform runs on Intel architecture and most deployments of the tools are on systems using Intel chips."
