This year's EMC World is focused on the transformational effects of cloud computing and in Tucci's mind, the argument over public or private clouds is pointless. Hybrid cloud environments are most certainly the way of the future and they'll become the most pervasive form of enterprise cloud computing, he said.
"We firmly believe, deeply believe, that there will be 100,000s of private clouds and thousands of big companies, new companies, will stand up public clouds. So it's a world of both," Tucci said.
In addition to the rousing speeches, EMC unveiled a whopping 42 products during its Mega Launch II. Chuck Hollis, an EMC CTO, highlights the product launches in more detail on his blog.

At #emcworld they announced 42 new products. Love how they tied that back the the hitchhiker's guide to the universe at the end.
