EMC was a US computer storage company, now called Dell EMC after its $67bn merger with Dell Inc.
EMC was considered a market leader in IT storage, boasting over 70,000 employees and regarded as the world’s largest provider of data-storage systems by market share.
Competing against NetApp, IBM, HPE and HItachi Data Systems, EMC provided data storage, information security, virtualisation, analytics and cloud computing to organisations wanting to store, manage, protect and analyse data.
In what was the biggest-ever acquisition in the technology industry, Dell completed its acquisition of EMC in 2016. As a result of the merger, the company was renamed Dell EMC.
