Dell No. 1 In Storage Capacity Shipped
In the ongoing storage wars, every victory is celebrated. And Dell is no exception. In a blog post on the company's website, storage executive Travis Vigil said that in the first quarter Dell became the largest storage vendor in terms of Terabytes shipped.
This occurred despite the fact that Dell's overall storage revenue has been in decline.
"This latest ranking demonstrates Dell's ability to successfully offer customers both traditional external arrays and, as storage continues to move closer to the compute node, internal storage from our server business. This is becoming increasingly important as technology advances and the IT industry evolves into one that appreciates a solutions approach to data center needs," he wrote in the blog.
