POWER OF ATTORNEY

      I, Kenneth Denman, appoint each of Craig D. Norris, Amy Fliegelman Olli
and Larry R. Wainblat as my
attorney-in-fact to:

      (1)  execute on my behalf, in my capacity as an officer or director of
VMware, Inc. (the
"Company"), Forms 144 in accordance with Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933
and Forms 3, 4
and 5 in accordance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
and the rules
thereunder (collectively, the "Forms");

      (2)  perform on my behalf any act necessary or desirable to complete and
execute any Form,
complete and execute any amendment to a Form and timely file the Forms with the
United States
Securities and Exchange Commission and any stock exchange or similar authority;
and

      (3)  take any other action related to the Forms that, in his or her
opinion, may benefit me or
may be legally required of me.

Each attorney-in-fact has the power and authority to appoint a substitute
attorney-in-fact,
revoke that appointment and determine the form, terms and conditions of any
document executed by
him or her.  I acknowledge that none of the attorneys-in-fact or the Company are
assuming any of my
responsibilities to comply with Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933 or
Section 16 of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934. By signing this Power of Attorney, I am ratifying and
confirming all actions
lawfully taken by an attorney-in-fact in the performance of his or her duties
under this Power of
Attorney.

As of the date below, any and all prior powers of attorney executed by me
related to the Forms
are hereby revoked and superseded by this Power of Attorney.  This Power of
Attorney will remain
effective until I am no longer required to file Forms related to my holdings of
Company securities, unless
I earlier deliver a signed revocation notice to the Company's general counsel.
If an attorney-in-fact
terminates employment with the Company, this Power of Attorney will be deemed
revoked with respect
to the departing attorney-in-fact and will remain effective with respect to each
other attorney-in-fact
remaining employed by the Company until terminated pursuant to the preceding
sentence.

I have signed this Power of Attorney on January 5, 2021.
