What do you think about DELL-EMC merger?

Asked by Corbuleac (17points) December 7th, 2015

Dell announced that will buy data storage company EMC in a deal valued at $67 billion, which would be the largest transaction in the technology sector. Do you think Dell will take action in cloud hosting industry considering that EMC has VMware?

Too bad. Dell isn’t what I would call the most stable company in the business. They’re pushing service, but so is everyone else. I don’t see Dell as a long term survivor.

Having said that: EMC is a great company. But there are now other players in the virtual server market, which is a major part of EMC’s income.

I don’t see this as good for EMC. Dell tends to ruin things that they touch.

Indeed, This somewhat ‘strategic move’ may not be all that worthwhile, given that there are top rivals which have made enormous leads in the cloud rat race recently. I wrote more about it at I will write more related information in the following days and I will exclusively post on Fluther.
