, through its global investment arm, Intel Capital has agreed to become an investor in virtualization software company VMware.

In addition VMware and Intel have entered into a routine and customary collaboration partnering agreement, and want to improve cooperation in various joint development, marketing and industry initiatives.

Intel will invest a total of $218.5 million, this should be enough to get them ownership on 2.5% of VMware's total outstanding stock.

VMware also used the occasion to announce the availability of its VMware Lab Manager 2.5, the latest version of the industry's leading virtual lab automation system.
