Michael Dell And Joe Tucci's Call To Arms For EMC Sales Force: 'The Opportunities Are Massive'
'Building The Pre-Eminent, Leading Infrastructure Company'
"I think the plot in the data center is converged infrastructure and with VCE, EMC has done an awesome job in capturing that territory," Dell said. "EMC, yes, is a storage company, but it's gone way beyond storage. When I look at the leadership that you and your team have exhibited in infrastructure -- and really what we're building is the pre-eminent leading infrastructure company in the world -- this makes a ton of sense. I'll also say, that's where the headquarters is, but we're not moving people around, we're going to have people all over the world with centers of confidence and capability and we've got – the infrastructure business will be a $30 billion-plus business. We'll be based in Hopkinton, [Mass.], and we'll have a really strong position, of course, in storage, in servers and converged infrastructure. Really pleased with what I'm seeing in the hyper-converged road map. The opportunity is ours."
