EMC's Major Product Launch: From Entry-Level To Enterprise Storage


EMC on Tuesday made its biggest product launches in years, with a special focus on its new VNX/VNXe family of SMB storage appliances backed by plans to expand its solution provider base by thousands of partners.

The VNX/VNXe launch gives EMC the opportunity to grow its share of the SMB storage market, a market where the company has dabbled but not really been focused, said EMC Chairman, CEO, and President Joe Tucci.

"(SMB) is a huge market, whether it is another 25 or 30 percent potentially. Something in that order probably, potentially, where we haven't been," Tucci said. "When we enter a market we try to become number one. That would be significant for EMC."
