Dell EMC Still Sort Of Number One In Sales, But Growth Still Sort Of Growing

Whether Dell EMC grew storage sales also depends on how sales were measured.

Dell EMC is only number two in terms of total enterprise storage systems sales at $2.2 billion, or about 18.8 percent of the market. Revenue was up about 1.6 percent over last year, IDC said.

However, in terms of external storage systems sales, Dell EMC is number one by far at $1.6 billion, which was down 4.0 percent over last year.
