This IDC study provides a brief overview of the worldwide enterprise storage systems market performance during CY 4Q19.

"Holistically, the enterprise storage systems market fared well in 4Q19, growing 5.1% year over year (y/y). This was led in large part by greater-than-expected hyperscaler demand for ODM Direct systems, resulting in a sales increase of 38.2% y/y," said Greg Macatee, research analyst, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies. "Meanwhile, the external storage systems market remained relatively flat during the quarter (-0.1% y/y), which all things considered was noteworthy given a quite difficult year-ago comparison, while sales of all-flash array (AFA) systems overtook hybrid flash array (HFA) system sales in 4Q19 as the top revenue generator within the external market. There is great downside risk to the market's short-term outlook, however, as we start gathering early 1Q20 results and assessing the broader impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on vendor performance."
