"The Internet-driven economy is creating unprecedented demand for intelligent enterprise storage," Michael Ruettgers, EMC President and CEO, said in a statement. "The growth of online information and the need to uniformly manage and protect it have become critical business challenges not only for the dot-com pioneers but also for the Global 2000," he added.
Despite the strong report, EMC's stock fell 4-5/16 to close at 65-1/8.
