Gartner Recognizes EMC as #1 NAS and Unified Storage, Worldwide Market Leader in 2012

first_imgIn March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.Recently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).According to Gartner’s findings for this fast growing market segment:EMC is the number one vendor, with 47.9% of the market share in 2012EMC grew its market share to 47.9% in 2012 – up from 41.7% in 2011The next closest vendor lost market share in 2012 – down to 30.3% from 36% in 2011.What seems obvious to me, with this latest market share analysis, is not the just the 47.9% market share—it’s that EMC grew market share significantly from 2012.  This means, as a company, we believe EMC is not only delivering our customers and partners a vision that strongly aligns to their business needs, but we are also executing on this vision,  delivering NAS and unified solutions that lay a solid foundation to handle both today’s—and tomorrow’s—midrange storage demands.  Did you know that…EMC has shipped more than 71,000 VNX arraysIsilon has shipped over half an exabyte in the first six months of 2013We’re honored to be #1… and we’re committed to delivering customers what they’re asking for: Solutions that solve real business problems.We’ve made the new Gartner Market Share Analysis  available at no cost.Download the report today!last_img
