THE RECESSION

The recession forced EMC to kill off nearly 2,500 jobs early on, claiming to save up to $500M. At the beginning of the malaise, it was thought the storage market would suffer significant declines, but it’s mostly gotten through it with fine numbers. The most recently quarterly report showed the company gained $4.1 Billion in revenue last year, just a 2% increase over last year.

The company’s stake in VMWare (software for data centers), which also has a successful business and didn’t fall off the last two years, means they are well-positioned for the next few years. This is increasingly the case as more companies that are looking to save some costs by adding secure enterpriuse software will most likely look to EMC.
