EMC Enhances Network

HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced the formation of the new EMC Innovation Network. The global, collaborative community including some of the world's brightest technology minds comprises EMC research, advanced development resources, university research partners and key customers that will seek to drive the exploration, discovery and application of new technologies that will shape the future of information infrastructure.

In addition to a broad range of ongoing EMC advanced development and research, the EMC Innovation Network will explore key insights into how information technology is delivered, particularly as it relates to the management and use of information itself. Through the EMC Innovation Network, EMC will explore areas such as:

-- Semantic Web, search, context, and ontological views
-- Service-oriented infrastructures for IT orchestration and business IT
insight
-- Information-centric security

-- "Web 2.0" storage that scales gracefully to communities of millions of
users
-- Information grid for real-time, complex information analytics
-- Virtualization of information infrastructure within and across
organizational boundaries

Through the new EMC Innovation Network, EMC will harness the collective research and development power of its approximately 5,000 technical R&D employees; align research resources from around the globe, including those housed in EMC India-, China- and Russia-based Centers of Excellence; and foster academic collaboration through new and existing university and consortia relationships. The global collaboration will harness the collective knowledge of EMC's extended research community and expand the value of EMC's more than $1 billion annual R&D investment.
