When considering storage, companies must consider solutions that provide cost-effective, scalable, flexible storage with high availability and performance. IBM has been tackling critical storage issues for large and small companies - in practically every industry - with everything from strategy to implementation. And that commitment continues today from IBM and Progress Systems. Together, we're here to make your storage decision easier. IBM gained more overall market share than any of the top ten disk storage suppliers in 2001, according to a report released May 30, 2002 by Gartner Dataquest. Highlights from the report entitled “RAID-based Disk Storage Market Share Report, 2001" include

  • IBM, buoyed by increased TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server (code named "Shark") sales, gained 4.2 points of external RAID controller-based storage market share in 2001.
  • IBM led the top five storage vendors in 2001 with a 21.2% external RAID controller-based storage revenue increase.
  • IBM regained the #1 position in mainframe (OS/390) external RAID controller-based storage market share and revenue in 2001 with 48% of the market, a 17.1 point gain over the previous year.
  • IBM's SAN-attached external RAID controller-based storage revenue grew 72.6 % in 2001
  • IBM gained share in the total UNIX, Linux, IBM AIX, Sun Solaris and HP-UX external RAID controller-based storage operating system markets.

"IBM's end-to-end disk storage product portfolio, led by the Enterprise Storage Server, rose to the challenge of a price-conscious, cutthroat storage industry to deliver impressive, unmatched business growth in 2001," said Linda Sanford, senior vice president and group executive of IBM's Storage Systems Group. "The Gartner analysis marks another significant milestone in our unwavering march to leadership in the enterprise storage industry."
