All-Flash Storage Sales Skyrocket

While first-quarter all-flash storage array sales of $794.8 million represent just under 10 percent of the total enterprise storage systems market, it is the part of the market enjoying the biggest growth, IDC reported.

All-flash storage array sales grew 87.4 percent during the first quarter of 2016 compared with the same quarter of 2015.

EMC remained the top all-flash storage vendor. However, the big surprise was NetApp, which kept its No. 2 position but saw its all-flash storage sales grow by 238.2 percent, the only one of the top five vendors to see triple-digit growth.

All-flash storage sales still have a way to go to catch up with hybrid flash and disk array sales. IDC estimated that hybrid flash array sales accounted for over one-fourth of the total storage market in the first quarter at $2.2 billion.
