mark_lucovskyMark Lucovsky has rejoined VMware (NYSE: VMW). He had been working on Cloud Foundry, which VMware is spinning off as part of the Pivotal Initiative. The move comes ahead of VMware’s Q4 2012 earnings, which are set to be announced later today.

Chatter about Lucovsky’s apparent career shift surfaced on GigaOm, where seasoned reporter Barb Darrow spotted this tweet from Lucovsky’s account:

“Done with Cloud Foundry. Hand off to Pivotal Labs complete. Now hacking a mega-cloud platform for VMware with Vadim, Skaar, Oleg, Ben, and Doug.”

So what exactly is that mega cloud platform Lucovsky mentions? Perhaps it has something to do with VMware’s software defined datacenter push, which has been dominating the company’s channel marketing messages in recent months.
