Storage growth slowing to normal


By Stephen Lawson – The systems shipped in the quarter added up to 5,429 petabytes, up 30.7 percent from a year earlier. In the second quarter, it had grown by 46.7 percent from a year earlier.

Enterprise storage revenue totaled $7.6 billion in the quarter, of which EMC took 21.7 percent. Revenue for external disk storage, a figure that excludes disks located inside servers, increased 10.8 percent to just under $5.8 billion. EMC expanded its share of that market to 28.9 percent from 25.9 percent a year earlier, according to IDC.
