    HOPKINTON, MA - March 08, 2011 -

    EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced its EMC® VNX® unified storage solutions are guaranteed to be 25% more efficient than any other unified storage solution in the market—with no hidden caveats. The guarantee is timed with the general availability of the VNX family of unified storage systems (introduced in January 2011), and highlights the simplicity, efficiency and power of EMC's unified storage offerings.

    In May 2010 EMC established a 20% more efficient guarantee. Numerous customers proved that guarantee to be too conservative, which is why EMC is increasing its commitment to helping our customers maximize storage efficiency.

    Announcement Highlights

    • The new EMC 25% Storage Efficiency guarantee is based on out-of-the-box best practices. Now, EMC customers can purchase 25% less raw capacity than products from any other unified storage solution while benefiting from the same amount of useable capacity. Buying less raw capacity can substantially reduce acquisition and operational costs, while enabling customers to buy more raw and usable capacity from EMC for the same amount of money as they would pay for a competing solution.
    • The 25% Storage Efficiency guarantee covers the EMC VNX series and EMC Celerra® unified storage systems.
    • In related news, EMC announced worldwide general availability of the VNXe series and VNX series of storage solutions.

    Boston Medical Center, a private, not for profit, 626-licensed bed academic medical center that is the primary teaching affiliate for Boston University School of Medicine, uses EMC unified storage.

    "EMC Unified storage enables Boston Medical Center to manage our information simply and efficiently — while being powerful enough to handle our growth and the demands of our virtualized applications. EMC Unisphere™ made management a breeze—just a few clicks to provision, protect and report on both physical and virtual resources. Our EMC unified storage deployment was more-than 20% more efficient than competitive offerings, and we feel that EMC can easily attain its new 25% guarantee," said Joe Pesaturo, Senior Storage Architect, Boston Medical Center.

    Azimut Yachts, an Italian luxury yacht builder, chose EMC unified storage over products from HP, IBM and NetApp.

    "EMC unified storage is simple, efficient and powerful. We've been approached by other companies with guarantees—but EMC is the only company with no hidden caveats. The company's confidence in its storage efficiency is evident by this 25% guarantee. This is part of the reason we chose EMC—based on innovations to maximize SSDs, SAN/NAS multiprotocol connectivity, and the price/performance ratio. Another key criteria has been EMC's quality consulting and service throughout the selection process—a true added value to the offering," said Claudio Bertotti, ICT System Architect at Azimut Yachts.

    "The simplicity, efficiency and power of EMC unified storage is unmatched in the market," said Rich Napolitano, President, Unified Storage Division at EMC Corporation. "The EMC 25% storage efficiency guarantee is EMC's promise to customers that we help them do more with less—in virtualized environments or standard deployments. While other companies have 'guarantees', they come with pages of caveats and fine print. The EMC guarantee is plain and simple—manage your information simply, for less money with the most powerful unified storage solutions available."
