In addition to leading the overall storage software market for the full year of 2009, EMC also led in three storage software categories – storage replication, storage device management and storage management.  EMC’s leadership position in storage software played an important role in supporting the company’s $12 billion information infrastructure business in 2009.

Pat Gelsinger, President and Chief Operating Officer, EMC Information Infrastructure Products said, “There are tremendous opportunities for customers to better manage and protect the growing sea of information as they transition their data centers from four walls to a hybrid model that leverages virtualization and automated policies across geographically dispersed locations. The tenants of automated data movement across tiered storage coupled with the best-of-breed data deduplication and discovery technologies are the keys to helping customers achieve success. With the advancements and additions we made to our storage software portfolio in 2009, EMC has never been in a better position to ride this next big wave of IT convergence.”

Additionally, EMC announced on March 5, 2010 that it was the #1 provider of external disk storage systems again in 2009, according to the latest IDC Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker, March 2010. [b]
