Birth Of A Storage Giant

Dell's acquisition of EMC would make it the world's largest storage vender. The combined company would own close to 30 percent of the storage market, with EMC owning 21 percent of the pie and Dell about 10 percent, according to market research firm IDC.

Dell and EMC have a relationship that goes back years. Dell sold EMC's high-end storage products and midrange products such as EMC's midrange Clariion line of SAN arrays. EMC purchased downstream storage products from Dell. But eventually both filled out their product portfolios and competed more squarely.

Compared with EMC's 20 percent market share, HP is No. 2, at 14 percent, followed by Dell, with 10.2 percent. NetApp and IBM take the No. 4 and 5 spots, with a combined market share of 14 percent, IDC reported.
