Pure Storage Soars At No. 6 On All-Flash Storage

IDC, in its press statement about its first quarter enterprise storage sales, only called out the top five vendors by name. But with the surge that Pure Storage is seeing, CRN is including that company here.

IDC, in a recent separate report on all-flash storage which was available to clients but an excerpt of which was seen by CRN, reported Pure Storage had first-quarter 2018 revenue of $236.4 million, up 45.2-percent over sales in the first quarter of 2017. Since Pure Storage does not have a server business, that sales figure would be the same for the total enterprise storage and external enterprise storage, giving the vendor a strong sixth place in the storage business with a 1.8-percent share of the total enterprise storage systems market and a 3.8-percent share of the external enterprise storage market.

With that growth rate, however, Pure Storage could quickly outsell Hitachi Vantara and IBM to jump to the number 4 position. This is all the more significant given that Pure Storage sells only all-flash storage.
