VMware and Salesforce.com appear to be launching a virtualization as a service offering based on a teaser Web page posted by the companies.

Details about the effort, dubbed VMforce, are sparse, but the companies promise to "make an exciting joint announcement on the future of cloud computing" on April 27.

VMware CEO Paul Maritz and Salesforce.com chief Marc Benioff will host the powwow. It's likely the two parties will announce a data center tie up and some sort of virtualization as a service offering.
