The Symmetrix line grew by 32 percent over last year, while the conpany's mid-level storage business grew by 33 percent.EMC credited the gain in large part to sales as a result of companies adopting new IT infrastructures, such as cloud computing implimentations."Never in our history have we had a stronger team, more compelling vision, or more innovative set of technologies, services, and partnerships," said EMC chief executive Joe Tucci."As a result, EMC is in an excellent position to lead this dramatic shift in IT and provide our customers with a clear path forward on their journey to the cloud."
