Reading time ( words)

Total worldwide enterprise storage systems factory revenue grew by 6.8% year over year to nearly $8.8 billion during the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15), according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker. Total capacity shipments were up 41.1% year over year to 28.3 exabytes during the quarter.

"Following a busy end-of-year spending environment, the enterprise storage market fell back into what has become a familiar market pattern," said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage at IDC. "Spending on traditional external arrays fell during the quarter while demand for server-based storage and hyperscale infrastructure was up strongly during the quarter."

EMC finished in the top position within the total worldwide enterprise storage systems market, accounting for 17.4% of all spending in 1Q15.

HP held the number 2 position with a 14.6% share of spending during the quarter. Dell accounted for 10.2% of global spending.

As a collective group, storage systems sales by original design manufacturers (ODM's) selling directly to hyperscale datacenter customers accounted for 12.6% of global spending during the quarter.

Open networked disk storage systems highlights
