Storage revs up in third quarter

Unless you're HP

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The world’s insatiable appetite for storing compliance data, viral emails and jpegs of Britney helped the external storage market boost revenues another 7 per cent in the third quarter.

Total external controller-based disk storage revenues hit $3.7bn in the third quarter, Gartner said yesterday.

EMC took the top spot, surprise surprise, with sales up 17.54 per cent, giving it 25.5 per cent on the market. IBM grew sales 17.0 per cent to take 14.8 per cent of the market. Hewlett Packard’s sales spun backwards, dropping 11.9 per cent and taking 12.7 per cent of the market.

Hitachi HDS was in fourth place with 10.8 per cent of the market. In joint fifth place, Dell took 7.3 per cent. However, the biggest growth was shown by NetApp which saw revenues up 20.4 per cent, giving it equal footing with Dell.

Gartner flagged up an increase in the sale of add-on capacity as well as new units. It put this down to a rush to comply with the US’ Sarbanes Oxley legislation.®
