"Our performance in Q2 reflected strength in our subscription and SaaS product offerings, which grew 44% year-over-year," said Zane Rowe, VMware's CFO. "We plan to accelerate certain product initiatives through the remainder of the year, which will further support customers' digital transformations and grow our Subscription and SaaS product offerings."

The company didn't issue guidance for the third quarter. Shares of VMware were up just over 1% after hours.
