Worldwide purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) factory revenues declined -8.0 percent year over year totalling $726.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15).

According to the IDC, total PBBA open systems factory revenue decreased -9.0 percent year over year in 2Q15 with revenues totalling $654.4 million while the mainframe market experienced a growth of 1.8 percent for the same period.

Total worldwide PBBA capacity shipped for 2Q15 was just shy of 694 petabytes, an increase of 18.0 percent year over year.

“The worldwide PBBA market experienced a year-over-year decline in the second quarter of 2015 as the market continues to evolve,” says Liz Conner, Research Manager, Storage Systems, IDC.

“Focus continues to shift away from hardware-centric, on-premise PBBA systems to hybrid/gateway systems.

“The results are greater emphasis on backup and deduplication software, the ability to tier or push data to the cloud, and the increasing commoditisation of hardware, all of which require market participants to adjust product portfolios accordingly."

EMC maintained its lead in the overall PBBA market with 57.1 percent revenue share in the second quarter, followed by Symantec with 14.4 percent share.

IBM was in the third position and HP was in fourth, posting 7.4 percent and 5.1 percent market share, respectively.

Barracuda finished the quarter in the number 5 position with 3.7 percent market share.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
