EMC was acquired by Dell in 2016; at that time, Forbes noted EMC's "focus on developing and selling data storage and data management hardware and software and convincing its customers to buy its products independent of their other IT buying decisions" based on "best-of-breed."[6] It was later renamed to Dell EMC. Dell uses the EMC name with some of its products.[7]

Prior to its acquisition by Dell, EMC had, in 2008, acquired Iomega;[8] Dell EMC formed a partnership with Lenovo in 2013, as LenovoEMC, that superseded and rebranded Iomega.[9]
