Yesterday, EMC announced that the acquisition of Seattle-based Isilon Systems is nearly complete. First and foremost, I'd like to welcome our new friends to the EMC family. I suspect you'll quickly find the EMC culture a warm, welcoming and exciting place.
Having joined EMC through acquisition myself, I know there can be some level of uncertainty as to what exactly happens next. As Chuck points out, EMC has gotten pretty good at this stuff with over 50+ acquisitions in the last few years.
My advice while all of the little details get worked out, keep doing what you do best - Focus on innovation and meeting customers needs. I'd also encourage you to get to know your new extended family. EMC|ONE is a great place to begin. With tens-of-thousands of active EMC'ers, it's a great place to start getting to know us all.
Weclome aboard and get ready to have some fun!
