Jeff Nick, senior vice president and CTO of EMC, discussed the company's visioin of "last-mile virtualization" two years ago at Virtualization Expo in New York. More recently, he presented the company's virtual private cloud vision during a week when the company announced that it was joining the Plug and Play Tech Center.
Outlining key enabling technologies for virtual private clouds that EMC is working with the EMC Innovation Network and partner ecosystem to develop, he also remarked on the company's new commitment to the center as follows: "Startup companies continue to be a tremendous driver of innovation for the IT industry. Plug and Play Tech Center will give EMC's technology community access to startup activities, which will complement the organic development of new concepts at our R&D centers on the West Coast and around the world. We look forward to helping many of the companies hosted at the Plug and Play Tech Center move their ideas forward."
"Technology innovation flourishes when entrepreneurs have access to a worldwide network of business development resources," said Kayvan Baroumand, COO of Plug and Play Tech Center. "By collaborating with leading technology companies like EMC, Plug and Play can accelerate a technology startup's ability to empower its users and bring a wealth of benefits to people's digital lives and communities. We're pleased to have EMC as a sponsor of Plug and Play Tech Center. Working with the technology giant affords a heightened ability to work at the forefront of collaborative development and market evolution."
PlugandPlayTechCenter.com is a community of more than 280 technology startup companies in the areas of Web 2.0, software (SaaS), systems, semiconductor and telecomm verticals. Since its inception in January 2006 the center has helped the startups raise in excess of $800 million in venture funding.
Founded in 2007, the EMC Innovation Network is the company's global research collaboration, connecting advanced technology researchers with university and industry partners, including startup companies, from around the world. Following the motto, "expand knowledge locally - transfer it globally," the network builds fruitful collaborations between EMC's R&D operations and the technology communities in each region. By bringing together talent from inside and outside the company, EMC is expanding its knowledge in strategic areas of technology through a continual exchange of information.
