    HOPKINTON, MA - February 24, 2011 -

    EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that Forrester Research Inc. has recognized EMC for "solid execution and continued innovation" and "strong scale-out parallelism, coupled with its steady innovation and strong cloud focus (that) gives it a competitive advantage in the hypercompetitive EDW segment."

    The February 2011 report, "The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Warehousing Platforms, Q1 2011," states, "EMC Greenplum demonstrates strong growth, geographic diversification, vertical momentum, and partnerships in the EDW market." The analysis goes on to say that by establishing a new Data Computing Division soon after acquiring Greenplum and by rapidly rolling out a new high-performance appliance, EMC has demonstrated a "serious commitment" to this marketplace.

    "Forrester provides pragmatic and forward-thinking advice to leading global leaders in business and technology," noted Bill Cook, general manager and senior vice president of EMC's Data Computing Division. "Their comprehensive analysis factors in customer adoption and installed base, and thus we believe that this latest new Forrester report validates the growing demand for and market-leading excellence of EMC Greenplum technology."

    Forrester also reported that "business process and information management professionals regularly make substantial investments in EDW software, hardware, services, and personnel that consume millions of dollars."

    EMC Greenplum is addressing these pressing enterprise needs with purpose-built, highly scalable, parallel data warehousing solutions that architecturally integrate database, compute, storage and networks into a single, easy-to-manage enterprise-class system.
