Dell Takes The Lead

Dell is overtaking Hewlett Packard Enterprise as the worldwide market leader for enterprise storage sales, according to new second quarter 2018 data from research firm IDC.

Total worldwide storage revenue jumped from $10.9 billion to $13.2 billion in the second quarter 2018, representing a 21.3 percent increase year over year. Global external storage sales reached $6.1 billion, up 14.4 percent compared to the same quarter one year ago.

"Strong growth was driven by an ongoing infrastructure refresh cycle, investments in next-generation workloads, expanded use in public cloud services and data-driven initiatives," said Sebastian Lagana, IDC's research manager for Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies, in a statement. "The growing data economy is a big part of the current market growth."
