Dell EMC’s Rocket Ship in All Flash: Dell EMC Shipped Over an Exabyte of All Flash in 2016 – 2x Share of the Closest Competitor

During 2016, the “Year of All Flash”, Dell EMC shipped more than an Exabyte of all-flash array capacity[i]. As a market and innovation leader in enterprise storage for decades – Dell EMC ironically was considered to be a bit late to the ‘All Flash’ storage market. Today we’re taking share from our competitors and growing revenues faster than the all-flash storage market according to IDC. Dell Technologies’ all-flash revenue growth is 72.1%, versus the 61.2% growth for the overall all-flash storage market[ii].

In fact, this month marks the one-year anniversary of Dell EMC’s VMAX All Flash array. In 2016, we introduced the VMAX 450F and VMAX 850F then the VMAX 250F, inline compression and non-disruptive migration. During this transformative year, the VMAX business grew bookings of VMAX All Flash from 21% in Q1 2016 to approximately 70% in Q3, 2016 with continued progress in Q4.[iii]

Dell EMC has been a leader in mainframe storage for more than 26 years, starting with the introduction of the first Symmetrix disk array, and our legacy of innovation and enterprise storage market leadership[i] continues today with Dell EMC VMAX All Flash primary storage and Disk Library for mainframe (DLm) virtual tape, which has dramatically eliminated the need for physical tape.  Today at SHARE 2017, Dell EMC is announcing DLM release 4.5 for cloud-based physical tape replacement. We aim to put to rest any further arguments about whether physical tape should still be considered a go-forward long-term retention strategy.

While our Dell EMC HPC team spends this busy week meeting with countless customers, partners and fellow industry leaders at SC16, I think back to our participation at SC15 last year and how much we’ve accomplished in one lightning fast year.

At last year’s annual HPC industry conference, we said we were going to disrupt, democratize and drive industry differentiation in a way that takes what we’ve learned from the most sophisticated research institutions and government agency supercomputers, and making it easier for a broader set of organizations and businesses to benefit and transform from HPC systems in this digital world.

Based on that declaration, we have significantly grown our business. In fact, leading HPC market firm Intersect360 Research just declared that Dell EMC holds THE #1 position in total HPC revenue share heading into 2017.
