Frankly, I don't see how it complements their business and why they would want it. Better matches would be VMware buying EMC or vice versa.
EMC actually already owns 80% of VMware; EMC acquired VMware in 2003, then spun VMware off in an IPO in 2007, but still maintains about 80% ownership. EMC partners with VMware (and Cisco) in the VCE coalition, but VMware is still run completely independently -- e.g. despite being 80% owned by EMC, VMware is still free to go to market with competing storage and server/networking vendors.
