Storage Industry Highlight: Flash Storage Sales

Flash storage continues to be a big driver of storage system sales as customers find more options and the difference in total cost of ownership between flash and disk-based storage becomes less and less of a factor.

Total sales of all-flash storage arrays reached nearly $1.6 billion during the third quarter, up 38.1 percent over the same period last year.

Sales of hybrid flash storage arrays, which combine flash and disk storage, reached $2.3 billion in revenue, accounting for 19.1 percent of the total storage market, IDC said.
