Worldwide Storage Software and Public Cloud Market Shares, 4Q17: Array-Based Solutions Decline, Cloud Storage Grows, and Market Opportunity Continues to Shift Toward Public Cloud

By: Andrew SmithResearch Manager, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, Eric SheppardResearch Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group


This IDC study provides a brief overview of the worldwide storage software and basic storage (infrastructure as a service [IaaS]) market performance during the fourth calendar quarter of 2017 (4Q17) and full year 2017.

"4Q17 capped off a difficult year for the storage software market," said Andrew Smith, senior research analyst, Storage Software. "Demand for public cloud storage capacity and applications drives growth for cloud-based archiving, backup, and protection solutions — evidenced by continued growth of the PCS revenue segment — but it is not enough to offset the large declines of more traditional, array-based solutions and replication and storage management solutions. As a result, the total storage software market declined 1.4% in 2017."
