Dell today announced that it has been recognized as the No.1 storage vendor in the total number of terabytes sold (internal and external) for the first half of 2014 based on information from the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker Q2 2014. During this period, IDC reports that Dell has shipped 4,311,728 terabytes, or more than 4 exabytes, of storage capacity globally. Dell also was recognized as the leading vendor in both revenue and market share for iSCSI storage and as the leading vendor for external DAS vendor based on revenue share worldwide for the first half of 2014.
Enterprise storage has been seeing a dramatic change owing to the increasing data volumes and the growth of social media, mobility, analytics and the cloud in enterprises. Dell has recognized the impact that these changes have on customers and has designed its storage solutions to better equip its customers to efficiently manage this data growth. As the lines between servers and traditional storage continue to blur, Dell offers converged infrastructure, software-defined storage and in-server flash solutions to support IT decision makers and CIOs seeking new technology approaches that provide simplicity through tight solution integration and automation. Manish Gupta, General Manager and Director, Enterprise Solutions, Dell India said: “Dell’s market leadership has been indicative of the significant investment that we have devoted in providing our customers with future-ready data center solutions. We also have dedicated a significant amount of our resources in improving the strength of our coverage across the country. Our efforts have translated into positive results, and we look forward to further replicate this success by developing more innovative and customer-centric storage solutions.”
Since its transformation to an end-to-end solutions provider, Dell has aggressively developed a storage portfolio to provide more simple and efficient storage that is optimized to offer customers with market leading price for performance. This coupled with Dell’s customer-centric approach has been instrumental in its success in the storage market. Dell has won several awards for its storage portfolio including, most recently, research firm IT Brand Pulse 2014 Market Leader in All Flash iSCSI SSD and overall Price Leader for hybrid SSD/HDD environments and for All-Flash Fibre Channel arrays, iSCSI arrays, NAS and flash management software.
