EMC Corporation (stylized as EMC²) is an American multinational corporation that offers data storage, information security, virtualization, and cloud computing products and services which enable businesses to store, manage, protect, and analyze massive volumes of data. EMC's target markets include large FORTUNE 500 companies as well as small business across various vertical markets. It is headquartered in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
Former Intel executive Richard Egan and his college roommate, Roger Marino, founded EMC in 1979. The company’s name, EMC, stands for the initials of the founders, and a third and fourth whose last names are Connelly and Curly hence the EMC^2. As mentioned by Joe Tucci at EMC World 2012 in May 2012, "EMC Corporation" is the company's full name. The company's logo also incorporates exponent 2, a reference to Albert Einstein's mass–energy equivalence theory.
EMC, founded in 1979 by Richard Egan and Roger Marino (the E and M in EMC), introduced their first 64-kilobyte memory boards for the Prime Computer in 1981, and continued with the development of memory boards for other computer types. In the mid 1980s the company expanded beyond memory to other computer data storage types and networked storage platforms. The company started to ship its flagship product, the Symmetrix in 1990.
The Symmetrix has been developed by a team headed by Moshe Yanai. This product was the main reason for the rapid growth of EMC in the 1990s, both in size and value, from a company valued hundreds of millions of dollars to a multi-billion company. Moshe Yanai managed the Symmetrix development from the product's inception in the late 1980s until shortly before leaving EMC in 2001, and his Symmetrix development team grew from several people to thousands. From 2001, Yanai was named a Founder and EMC Fellow, continuing to serve as a technical strategist.
EMC remains the largest provider of data storage platforms in the world, competing with IBM, NetApp, Hewlett-Packard, and Hitachi Data Systems. Consulting and IT Services have been an increasingly important source of revenue. Joseph Tucci, CEO since 2001, was paid over $9 million in 2009.
A series of acquisitions and partnerships helped grow EMC to the largest provider of data storage platforms in the world. On November 12, 2007, EMC partnered with NetQoS to deliver the first integrated infrastructure discovery and performance monitoring solutions.[clarification needed]
