Let's not forget how much EMC overcharges vs the rest of the industry
So if we are just talking about revenue, its pretty pointless. EMC maybe have shipped less useable storage than others for that amount of money.
NetApp is now second in the all-flash array market, according to IDC numbers we have been given. The numbers are for vendor revenues and the first quarter of 2016. The figures show NetApp having $181.1m revenues and a 22.8 per cent share, second to EMC’s $245.6m and 30.9 per cent share. It grew its all-flash business 238 per …
If you did some digging you would find that IDC changed how they count AFA market share starting June 2016. They now include a broader range of systems which is why you suddenly see this change. They now include more systems that have traditionally been classified as hybrid.
Flash growing at a huge rate but NetApp market share dropping drastically too.
Is someone eating their own lunch or diverting revenue numbers like some mentioned EMC did with Xtremio.
Either Way, NetApp flash portfolio can grow as fast as it wants, fact is, they are shrinking as a company and confusing customers with multiple flash products that just arent quite there regardless of whether they gave Cmode a new name(ontap 9)
It is always hard to compare numbers across vendors that have different fiscal years. The hockey stick always applies to every IT company. Q4 always was and probably always will be the highest revenue number. This being said this was NetApps Q4 and mainly all others Q1. As said it is always hard to compare cause you will never find a common basis but comparing ones best (NTAP) against all others worst doesn't seem to be a fair comparison. Will be interesting to see the Q4 numbers where NetApps Q3 and all others Q4 will be compared. An average or trend line would be best to have.
