To add more products to Dell/EMC networked storage systems portfolio
Dell and EMC, a provider of information infrastructure technology, have announced a multi-year extension of their global alliance through 2013.
In addition to extending the partnership, Dell and EMC are expected to add the EMC Celerra NX4 storage system to the portfolio of Dell/EMC networked storage systems.
Dell and EMC formed their alliance in October 2001 to help customers reduce complexity and effectively store, manage and protect their information through networked storage. From the outset, Dell and EMC implemented a model of collaboration to utilize each other’s strengths in order to deliver value to customers.
Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell, said: By broadening and extending our deep alliance Dell and EMC are able to deliver to customers fully integrated datacenter solutions as the preeminent storage partners to customers worldwide. Users and Enterprises in the Connected Era have an insatiable appetite for storage. Today’s economic realities place an emphasis on efficient solutions that consolidate and virtualize – which through our long-standing partnership we are well positioned to deliver.
Joe Tucci, chairman, president and CEO of EMC, said: This relationship had its genesis during a challenging time in the economy and a desire by both companies to provide cost-effective solutions to customers who still had to manage ever increasing amounts of information. The same is true today, and while Dell and EMC are both very different than they were in 2001, we are committed to our mutual customers and to delivering industry-leading technologies that can provide them maximum return on their investment.
