EMCultimately won with a $2.1 billion offer, outbidding NetApps $1.9 billion price.
Last week, I had a chance to catch up with the president of the combined EMC-Data Domaindivision, BJ Jenkins, who says two and a half years later all is hunky dory at the combinedcompanies, which have merged into EMCs "Backup Recovery Systems Division" headquarteredin Santa Clara."For EMC, its been a core competency for us to acquire companies and help them grow,"Jenkins said. "I think at the time of acquisition there was a lot of talk about East Coast vs. WestCoast culture and how would those two mesh? Were these products going to work together andgrow, or were they going to cannibalize each other? Our experience has been that the growth hasbeen great."The division makes backup systems featuring "deduplication" technology, which can identifyfiles and data that are redundant so it doesnt have to copy them again. Because they are moreefficient, EMC-Data Domain says its systems can reduce a companys storage footprint by 10 to30 times.Jenkins does have some numbers to demonstrate the divisions success: It more than doubled itsrevenue from 2010 to 2011, from $1 billion to $2 billion. Data Domain was pulling in about$485 million when it was acquired.At that time, Data Domain had about 900 employees, about half of them in Silicon Valley. EMCcombined that with 900 employees from the backup division it already had, for a total of about1,800 employees when the companies merged.Today, the division has more than 3,000 employees, with more than 1,000 in Silicon Valley,Jenkins said. It hired more than 550 people in California over the last two years and expects tohire at an even faster pace this year, he said.Leadership at the top has changed, though: Jenkins took over as president in Jan. 2011, replacingFrank Slootman, Data Domains former CEO.Jenkins had worked at EMC for 13 years, and was previously chief of staff of the backupdivision. Slootman is now a venture partner at venture capital firm Greylock Partners and CEOat San Diego-based ServiceNow, a company that makes business process automation software,according to Greylocks website.Jenkins said by acquiring Data Domain, EMC was able to take the cutting-edge deduplicationtechnology and give it the advantage of EMCs huge size and clout."We were able to really take that foundational element that Data Domain provided and just reachmore customers with it," he said. "It was not a redundancy or efficiency type of acquisition at all.We call it an offensive growth acquisition — how can we get this product in front of morecustomers faster than we could as a standalone company."Diana Samuels covers technology, cleantech, biotech and venture capital.

Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing. Through innovativeproducts and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping ITdepartments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset – information – ina more agile, trusted, and cost-efficient way.Gelsinger is responsible for EMCs Information Infrastructure product portfolio, includinginformation storage divisions, as well as Data Computing, Backup and Recovery Systems, RSASecurity, Enterprise Solutions, and the office of the Chief Technology Officer. He reports to JoeTucci, EMCs Chairman and CEO.At EMC, he has led EMC product engineering and manufacturing divisions through the largest-ever revamp of EMCs industry-leading product portfolio, including the launch of the award-winning VNX family of unified storage platforms, which have gained market share for EMC inthe rapidly growing mid-tier and small-business segments. Under Gelsingers leadership, EMChas grown its Backup and Recovery Systems division into an essential part of EMCs business,combining Avamar and Data Domain to offer next-generation backup solutions designedspecifically for new data center architectures. He has also overseen the integration and growthof Isilon scale-out NAS, as well as the introductions of the Greenplum Unified Analytics Platformfor big data analytics and server Flash caching technology, EMC VFCache. He also leadsEMCs technology partnerships with industry leaders including Intel, SAP, Microsoft, VCE (theVirtual Computing Environment Company, EMCs joint venture with Cisco), and VMware (theEMC majority-owned and publicly-traded market leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure).Prior to this, he led Intel Labs, which encompasses many of Intel research activities, includingleading Corporate Technology Group and Intel Research. As Intels first chief technology officer(CTO), he managed Intels longer-term research efforts and helped ensure consistency fromIntels emerging computing, networking, and communications products and technologies.Gelsinger also led Intels Desktop Products Group, where he was responsible for its desktopprocessors, chipsets, and motherboards for consumer and commercial OEM customers as wellas many of Intels technology initiatives and the Intel Developer Forum. He also led thedevelopment of the Intel ProShare video conferencing and Internet communications product line.He was general manager of the division responsible for the Pentium Pro, IntelDX2 and Intel486
microprocessor families. He was also architect of the original 80486 and a design engineer onthe 80386 and 80286 processor design teams.He holds six patents in the areas of VLSI design, computer architecture and communications, isa well-known speaker on technology trends, and has received a variety of industry recognitionawards.

All degrees are in electrical engineering. He is aFellow of the IEEE (2008) and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters in 2008 fromWilliam Jessup University.February 2012…Frank Slootman, the former chief executive of Data Domain, is joining venture firm Greylock partners.It is a somewhat incestuous move, since Greylock backed Data Domain, which was purchased by EMCfor $2.4 billion in 2009.Fifteen-year EMC staffer William “BJ” Jenkins replaces Slootman heading up the BRS team.EMC says that Slootman will stay on as an advisor for next generation backup and recoveryproducts.Frank Slootman will join Greylock as a partner. In his new role, Slootman will invest in datacenter infrastructure start-ups, particularly in the virtualization, networking, storage, cloud andenterprise application sectors. He will also coach and mentor up-and-coming entrepreneurs andexecutives.Data Domain was a big success, and the investors which included Greylock and NEA made abig return. We had the Data Domain guys inside the Cube at EMC World and they had nothingbut good things to say about EMC.
My Angle: This isn’t a firing at EMC, but a graceful exit for someone who is interested intechnology innovation and entrepreneurship. EMC is heads down focused on execution andnew products.Slootman moving to a venture role is a perfect position for Slootman, Greylock and otherentrepreneurs. Storage, data, and converged infrastructure is the sexiest area right now andSlootman brings a lot to the table.Here are some choice quotes from Greylock’s press releaseAneel Bhusri, a partner at Greylock. Bhusri was one of the early stage investors in Data Domainand its chairman at the time of its acquisition by EMC Corporation. Bhusri is also co-founder andco-chief executive at Workday and currently leads Greylock‟s investments in Cloudera, DataRobotics, Proferi and Pure Storage. “Frank‟s experience and perspective will be a tremendousasset to Greylock and he will be a valued partner to entrepreneurs who are building the nextgeneration of enterprise technology companies.”“Joining Greylock will enable me to get involved with many more aspiring and innovativecompanies. The world is buzzing with new ideas and innovation, and this is a great time to seekout, invest in and help bring about the next wave of exciting companies,” says Slootman.Slootman brings with him 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur and executive in theenterprise software industry. He most recently served as president of EMC‟s Backup RecoverySystems (BRS) Division. At Greylock Frank will remain in a formal advisory capacity to EMCand to the company‟s BRS Division. Prior to EMC, Frank served as chief executive of DataDomain, a venture-backed storage company that was acquired by EMC. Data Domain wasfounded in 2001 and grew at record pace. The company listed its shares on Nasdaq in 2007and was acquired by EMC in 2009 for $2.4 billion.Prior to Data Domain, Slootman served as a products executive at Borland Software andCompuware Corporation. He started his career at Burroughs Corporation in Detroit, Michigan.

MARI A D E UT SCH E R | FEBR UAR Y 24T HREAD MOREStorage giant EMC has acquired backup company Data Domain for a massive $2.1B BACK in2009, after winning in a bidding contest against competitor NetApp with an offer $200 millionhigher than the latter’s. Overall, the merger has worked out okay, according a recent interviewwith BJ Jenkins, the current head of the integrated unit.“For EMC, it‟s been a core competency for us to acquire companies and help them grow,”Jenkins said. “I think at the time of acquisition there was a lot of talk about „East Coast vs. WestCoast‟ culture and how would those two mesh? Were these products going to work together andgrow, or were they going to cannibalize each other? Our experience has been that the growthhas been great.”Jenkins provided a few figures to help demonstrate his point. The main highlight is that DataDomain’s revenue ballooned from $1 billion to $2 billion between 2010 and 2011; a very bigincrease, especially when compared with the $485 million annual revenue the companyreported prior to the EMC takeover.There have also been some internal improvements, at least from an operational standpoint.Data Domain’s original number of 900 employees was doubled right after the deal uponintegration with EMC’s backup business, and today that number has grown to 3,000. The veryleast this indicates a strong commitment by the storage giant to continue and invest in what, inretrospective, is turning out to be an increasingly profitable decision.EMC is fleshing out its on-premise storage equipment and software as new trends such as bigdata disrupt the market. At the same time, cloud providers are doing the same in the remotedatacenter. A more recent acquisition was that of Sharepoint 911, a Sharepoint servicesprovider, by cloud host Rackspace.In the same vein: EMC Breaks More Records with Symmetrix and Other New Products EMC Rolling Strong Breaking Records “Joe Tucci Loves The Cloud Action” NetApp Needs Some Missing Pieces To Keep Pace Fusion-IO Continues Its Path to Dominance in Storage Market HP, Dell and IBM Continue to Languish Compared to EMC and NetApp
