Subject Company’s Commission File No.: 001-09853

On August 7, 2007, the following communication was sent via email to eligible employees of VMware, Inc. (“VMware”) in connection with EMC Corporation’s (“EMC”) and VMware’s offer to exchange certain outstanding options to purchase shares of EMC’s common stock for options to purchase shares of VMware’s Class A common stock and certain outstanding restricted stock of EMC for restricted Class A common stock of VMware.

 


TO:

The EMC-VMware Exchange Program has been extended and will now expire at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, August 13, 2007 , unless the offer is further extended. The Exchange Program had previously been scheduled to expire at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on August 9, 2007.

Additionally, we would like to inform you that all employees eligible to participate in the Exchange Program will be subject to a blackout period in order to process elections made in the offer. As a result, immediately after the Exchange Program expires on August 13 (unless the offer is extended), you will be unable to make transactions related to EMC options within your UBS account for the remainder of the trading day. On August 14 (unless the offer is extended), if you have made election(s) to exchange in the offer, EMC options within your UBS account will remain subject to blackout, so your election(s) can be properly processed. We expect the blackout to be lifted entirely on August 15 (unless the offer is extended).

If you are eligible and decide to participate in the Exchange Program, you must make your election(s) before the offer expires. We urge you to allot yourself ample time to familiarize yourself with the site, the offering materials, and the process for making your election(s).

As a reminder from the earlier e-mails that have been sent to you, the online Election Site for the EMC-VMware Exchange Program is available at: https://www.corp-action.net/vmware , and the following personal identification number (PIN) has been assigned to you:
