HP: Fastest-Growing Vendor In Q4
HP's external controller-based disk storage revenue grew 25.3 percent in the fourth quarter compared with last year, which was faster than any other major storage vendor's growth, Gartner reported.
As a result, HP revenue hit $600.7 million, or just $58 million less than that of NetApp, giving HP a chance to take the No. 3 position assuming its future growth continues to exceed that of the rest of the industry.
Gartner cited broad acceptance of HP 3Par storage solution and the HP StoreOnce disk-based backup platforms as the key behind HP's blistering growth.
