History

EMC began in 1979. The founders were Richard (Dick) Egan and Roger Marino, the E and M in the company's name. (EMC did not adopt the EMC² notation to refer to Einstein's famous equation, E=mc².

With work from Moshe Yanai (who now works at XIV), EMC grew to the top with innovative and large storage platforms. Joseph Tucci became CEO in 2001, replacing Michael Ruettgers who continued as chairman until 2006. Also: 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins. ... Richard (Dick) J.
