Google hires VMware co-founder as cloud chief, aiming for enterprise adoption

VMware co-founder Diane Greene will oversee all of Google’s cloud businesses, including its Cloud Platform and Apps productivity suite, the company announced Thursday

Greene, who has been on the company’s board of directors for three years, took the position as the technology giant agreed to acquire Bebop, a stealthy startup that she co-founded. In a blog post announcing the news, Google CEO Sundar Pichai called the company’s product “a new development platform that makes it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications.”

It’s not clear what exactly that means, but Pichai went on to say that he expects the deal to let more businesses reap the benefits of cloud computing. In addition to Greene, the rest of the team from Bebop is also slated to join Google as part of the acquisition.
