Dell, however, did very well, with total disk storage systems revenue rising 4.0 percent to $912 million. Dell last month reported a 16 percent drop in total storage revenue over last year due to Dell's decision to end its deal to resell EMC storage, but said storage based on its own intellectual property fell 3 percent year-over-year. However, Dell also reported a 4.0 percent rise in server sales over last year, which likely dragged along a strong storage attach rate to give it an overall storage growth of 4.0 percent.
As a result, Dell saw a slight increase in market share to 11.6 percent, up from 11.5 percent last year.
NetApp was the No. 5 vendor.
Meanwhile, the "other" vendors enjoyed an 8.9 percent growth in storage revenue to $2.0 billion, IDC reported.
IDC also reported that sales of open SAN products, which includes iSCSI storage, rose 4.4 percent over last year, with EMC the leading vendor thanks to a 29.8-percent market share, followed by IBM at 14.0 percent, Hitachi at 12.2 percent and HP at 11.8 percent.
For iSCSI-only sales, which rose 6.9 percent over last year, Dell was the leader with a 28.3-percent market share followed by EMC at 19.8 percent and NetApp at 13.3 percent.
On the NAS side, where revenue rose 5.7 percent over last year, EMC led with a 43.6-percent market share followed by NetApp at 29.4 percent.
