IBM Showing Good Storage Sales Recovery

IBM was the fourth-largest storage vendor either way it was measured. IDC said Big Blue had $487.1 million in external storage system sales, up 5.1 percent over last year. IBM also enjoyed $508.7 million in total enterprise storage sales, which IDC said was 4.5 percent over its last-year sales.

While IBM sold its x86-based server business to Lenovo a couple years ago, the company still sells Power processor-based servers and mainframes which include storage.
