In March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically. For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.Recently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).According to Gartner’s findings for this fast growing market segment:EMC is the number one vendor, with 47.9% of the market share in 2012EMC grew its market share to 47.9% in 2012 – up from 41.7% in 2011The next closest vendor lost market share in 2012 – down to 30.3% from 36% in 2011.What seems obvious to me, with this latest market share analysis, is not the just the 47.9% market share—it’s that EMC grew market share significantly from 2012. This means, as a company, we believe EMC is not only delivering our customers and partners a vision that strongly aligns to their business needs, but we are also executing on this vision, delivering NAS and unified solutions that lay a solid foundation to handle both today’s—and tomorrow’s—midrange storage demands. Did you know that…EMC has shipped more than 71,000 VNX arraysIsilon has shipped over half an exabyte in the first six months of 2013We’re honored to be #1… and we’re committed to delivering customers what they’re asking for: Solutions that solve real business problems.We’ve made the new Gartner Market Share Analysis available at no cost.Download the report today!

On Feb. 18, 2012, the inaugural World CSR Day brought together global representatives from both the private and public sector to share experiences, challenges and opportunities to build a better society. Fast-forward to the year 2020, that inaugural event turned out to be a harbinger for things to come. Eight years later, we regularly see people vow to use only metal straws, cities banning plastic bags, and corporations pledging to go carbon neutral.In fact, I’m proud to say that this past fall, Dell Technologies announced our new social impact plan for the next decade, Progress Made Real, in which we made a promise to use our global scale, broad technology portfolio and expertise to yield meaningful and measurable impact on society and the planet. With this plan, we outlined a series of aggressive “moonshot” goals that we hope to accomplish by 2030. Today, I’m asking for your support in helping us achieve one of those goals.The plan stated that by 2030, for every product a customer buys, we will reuse or recycle an equivalent product. To help us do just that, Dell Technologies is hosting the Erase E-Waste Sweepstakes, inviting U.S.-based K-12 schools to recycle used consumer electronics for a chance to win technology for their classrooms.“E-waste,” short for electronic waste, describes discarded electrical or electronic devices, including used computers, televisions, smart phones, and laptops. E-waste is one of the fastest-growing global waste streams. According to an United Nations University report, we are expected to see over 52 million tons of e-waste by 2021 and currently, only 20% of electronics are recycled responsibly. When not recycled, electronics typically end up in landfills, where they can leach toxins like lead, mercury and cadmium into the soil and groundwater.By registering for the Dell Erase E-Waste Sweepstakes, schools will automatically receive a sustainability kit, with information on how to recycle electronics responsibility, tips for setting up a recycling drive, sustainability education resources as well as templates to help participants promote.In addition to advancing sustainability, we are also committed to transforming lives through technology. This sweepstakes was a perfect opportunity to tie the Dell Erase E-Waste initiative to driving transformation in education. As such, those U.S. schools that pledge to recycle and share on social media about their recycling drive are automatically entered to win a collaborative learning space.We know that digital tools help deepen learning and develop future readiness for students. That’s why Dell Technologies supports school districts in designing student-centric learning environments, inspiring students to lead their own path of discovery.If you are a student, teacher, administrator, parent or just a concerned citizen, we’d encourage you to work with your schools to help set up a recycling drive, and post about it using #EraseEwasteSweepstakes.Dell Technologies is committed to driving human progress. Through our reach, technology and people, we strive to create a positive and lasting impact on humankind and the planet.Learn more about our recycling services and register today. Eligibility: The Sweepstakes is open only to K-12 schools located in the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia with the following exceptions. K-12 schools in the state of New York, and K-12 schools with the open Category 2 Form 470s, or RFPs are not eligible to participate. The Sweepstake is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited. Participation constitutes Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — California has reported 40,000 coronavirus deaths as the state’s steepest surge of cases begins to taper. Data reported by Johns Hopkins University shows the state passed the milestone Saturday. The grim number comes amid a sharp recent decline in cases and hospitalizations but while deaths surge at a record pace. It took six months for California to record its first 10,000 deaths, then four months to double to 20,000. In just five more weeks the state reached 30,000. It then took only 20 days to get to 40,000. Now only New York has more deaths but at this pace California will eclipse that too.
NEW YORK (AP) — Deborah Archer, a law professor at New York University with expertise in civil rights and racial justice, has become the first Black person in the 101-year history of the American Civil Liberties Union to be elected its president. The ACLU announced Monday that Archer was elected in a virtual meeting of the organization’s 69-member board of directors. She succeeds Susan Herman, a professor at Brooklyn Law School who had served as president since 2008. The fight against racial injustice is expected to be a top priority for the ACLU now that Donald Trump’s presidency is over. While Trump was in office, the ACLU filed more than 400 lawsuits and other legal actions against his administration.
NEW YORK (AP) — Cicely Tyson, the pioneering Black actor who earned an Oscar nomination for her role as the sharecropper’s wife in “Sounder,” won a Tony Award in 2013 at age 88 and touched TV viewers’ hearts in “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,” has died. She was 96. A onetime model, Tyson began her screen career with bit parts but gained fame in the early 1970s when Black women were finally starting to get starring roles. She earned an honorary Oscar in 2018 and won two Emmys for playing the 110-year-old former slave in the 1974 television drama “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman.”
