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.
