In March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically. For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.
Recently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).
According to Gartner’s findings for this fast growing market segment:
- EMC is the number one vendor, with 47.9% of the market share in 2012
- EMC grew its market share to 47.9% in 2012 – up from 41.7% in 2011
- The next closest vendor lost market share in 2012 – down to 30.3% from 36% in 2011.
What seems obvious to me, with this latest market share analysis, is not the just the 47.9% market share—it’s that EMC grew market share significantly from 2012. This means, as a company, we believe EMC is not only delivering our customers and partners a vision that strongly aligns to their business needs, but we are also executing on this vision, delivering NAS and unified solutions that lay a solid foundation to handle both today’s—and tomorrow’s—midrange storage demands. Did you know that…
- EMC has shipped more than 71,000 VNX arrays
- Isilon has shipped over half an exabyte in the first six months of 2013
We’re honored to be #1… and we’re committed to delivering customers what they’re asking for: Solutions that solve real business problems.
