Hitachi Storage Sales Slowly Fading

Hitachi Vantara, which as of September combines the Hitachi Data Systems storage and data center infrastructure business, the Hitachi Insight Group IoT business, and Hitachi's Pentaho big data business into a combined company, saw its storage sales contract. That contraction was enough, when combined with IBM's gains, to cede the number-four spot to IBM.

IDC said Hitachi's total third-quarter enterprise storage systems sales reached $475.9 million, down 5.9 percent, while its external enterprise storage sales fell 5.4 percent to $466.9 million.
