Due to incorrect information from the research company, the story, "Disk storage still bouncing back, IDC says," which was posted to the wire Friday, misstated the market share of 3Par in the second quarter. The company had 0.78 percent of the market.
The story has been corrected on the wire. The fourth paragraph now reads as follows:
Hewlett-Packard had the biggest revenue in the quarter, growing to 19.3 percent market share as its sales increased 33.3 percent. EMC, IBM and Dell filled out the top four. However, HP's planned acquisition of high-end storage specialist 3Par isn't likely to improve its position much in the short term, Conner said. The company HP is buying had only 0.78 percent of the total external storage systems market, according to IDC. The acquisition is likely to help HP in the long run, but how much will depend on HP's success at integrating 3Par and increasing its sales, Conner said.
