Worldwide Storage Software and Public Cloud Market Shares, 3Q17: Market Growth Driven by Cloud Services Deployments

By: Andrew SmithSr. Research Analyst, Storage Software, Eric SheppardResearch Vice President, Server and Storage Infrastructure


This IDC study provides a brief overview of the worldwide storage software and basic storage (infrastructure as a service [IaaS]) market performance during the third calendar quarter of 2017 (3Q17).

"3Q17 was a return to growth for the storage software market segment, driven by public cloud services revenue," said Andrew Smith, senior research analyst, Storage Software. "Flexible pricing, integration, and management capabilities for high-value storage workloads like archiving and data protection and recovery (DP&R) continue to drive customers to cloud. This trend is accelerating in part because of the rapidly growing basic storage market, which allows customers to access a range of storage platforms and architectures for their cloud and hybrid cloud deployment needs."
