EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the #1 choice of customers for information storage in VMware virtual and cloud environments by a wide margin according to a recent Wikibon1 survey, has assembled and will announce a lineup of products and technologies designed to transform IT and business at the VMworld 2012 conference on August 26-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The combination of EMC's industry-leading information infrastructure products, solutions and services with VMware virtualization and cloud infrastructure technologies accelerates the customer journey to the cloud — lowering IT costs and improving business agility.

With opportunities to provide a hands-on experience to learn and acquire practical guidance, attendees will develop skills from EMC's vExperts and their peers to experience the benefits of EMC with VMware virtualization and cloud infrastructure technologies.
Key opportunities to listen, learn and gain hands-on experience:
Show goers will gain a deeper understanding of how to secure, backup and protect their EMC and VMware virtualized and cloud environments with vLabs featuring EMC Avamar®, RSA® and EMC VPLEX®. On full display will be EMC and EMC partner technologies offering end- user customers and service providers "three paths to the cloud" choice and flexibility — best-of-breed cloud infrastructure products for customer implementation, VCE Vblock Systems for converged infrastructure and the channel-only EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure.
