Enterprise Network Storage: EMC
CEO: Joe Tucci
EMC won 17 of 18 criteria and all three major subcategories to emerge victorious in this year's ARC survey for Enterprise Network Storage, as it did in 2011. EMC widened its lead against second-place challenger NetApp and left other competitors in the dust. With an overall score of 85.4, the vendor beat NetApp, Dell, IBM and Hewlett-Packard, which, in last place, scored more than 15 points lower than EMC. Product quality and reliability was EMC's strongest suit; the one criteria it lost to NetApp was in ease of doing business.
