Strong finish to storage market keeps EMC ahead of chasing pack

"The storage market had a strong finish to 2014."

Total worldwide enterprise storage systems factory revenue grew 7.2% year over year to nearly $10.6 billion during the fourth quarter of 2014 (4Q14), according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker.

Total capacity shipments were up 43.7% year over year to 31.8 exabytes during the quarter while spending for the full year was up 3.6% to $36.2 billion - full-year capacity consumption was up 43% to 99.2 exabytes.

"The storage market had a strong finish to 2014," says Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage, IDC.

"Fourth quarter spending on enterprise storage systems was up strongly in most major geographic markets, driven by traditional year-end seasonality, demand for midrange systems that incorporate flash capacity, and continued growth of systems designed for hyper scale data centres."

As a single group, storage systems sales by original design manufacturers (ODMs) selling directly to hyper scale data centre customers accounted for 12.8% of global spending during the quarter.
