If you’ve been longing for some good, old-fashioned technology vendor smack-talk, then you’ll like Jeremy Burton. According to a reporter with Bloomberg, the chief marketing officer for data infrastructure vendor EMC Corp. described rival Dell Corp. as a smelly and bloating “beached whale.” Apparently this was over lunch; hopefully he saved the unappetizing language until desert.

According to Bloomberg, besides not liking Dell (which explains why it picked Lenovo for its new partnership to build server and storage systems together), EMC is a “data centre survivor” since Joe Tucci took the helm as CEO about a decade ago. It has been an impressive stretch of growth for EMC. And we wouldn’t be a channel-focused web site if we didn’t point-out much of that success came once EMC truly embraced the indirect model. Thankfully, we don’t have to; Tucci credited the channel himself earlier this year at EMC World.

Meanwhile, if Dell has any names to call EMC in return we’ll let you know.
