Western Europe Storage Software Market Shares, 2016

Western Europe Storage Software Market Shares, 2016

This IDC study examines the 2016 Western European storage software market, which was driven by data protection and recovery software and grew a steady 8.3%, accounting for 40.6% of the total storage software market. 2016 also saw strong double-digit growth in the software-defined storage-controller software (SDS-CS) segment. Although it still accounts for a tiny portion of the overall market size (6%), it outgrew all the other storage software categories with its 12.3% YoY growth rate in 2016. "The presence and high growth rates of data protection and data security vendors — Veritas and Veeam in the top 5, as well as Commvault, Acronis, Mimecast, and Varonis in the top 15 — shows that data protection, governance, and management are at the heart of storage investment in Europe, while software categories more closely linked to storage hardware sales saw a slowdown in 2016 due to the commoditization that has hit the storage hardware market," said Archana Venkatraman, research manager, IDC European Storage Research.
