EMC Corporation is an American multinational corporation that sells data storage products and services used to build web-based computing systems. It is headquartered in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
Former Intel executive Richard Egan and his college roommate, Roger Marino, founded EMC in 1979. The company’s name, EMC, stands for the initials of the founders, and a third and fourth whose last names are Connelly and Curly hence the EMC^2. As mentioned by Joe Tucci at EMC World 2012 in May 2012, "EMC Corporation" is the company's full name. The company's logo also incorporates exponent 2, a reference to Albert Einstein's mass–energy equivalence theory.
