EMC remains in top position with 65% of PBBA market

The latest IDC Purpose Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) market forecast and vendor share report is out and some of the highlights are below.

IDC belongs vendors should do the following and I highlighted how EMC has exceeded in each category

  • Demonstrate the utility and value of using PBBA solutions in concert with existing data protection infrastructure — software and hardware.- EMC products integrate into existing environments with multiple protocols and flexible architectures.
  • Provide nondisruptive integration of PBBA solutions to customers’ existing data protection and disaster recovery frameworks so they need not change any procedures and policies.- EMC products can integrate directly into existing software with minimal change required. All business policies and frameworks can be used in place, but in many cases the removal of tape based infrastructure will be a trigger for improving existing disaster recovery procedures by simplifying them.
  • Support seamless data movement from PBBA systems to physical tape to support archive and disaster recovery.- EMC products work with both physical tape and virtual tape environments to drive down the cost of long term archive and optimized replication technologies help simplify disaster recovery while reducing costs of bandwidth
  • Support industry-standard interfaces, APIs, and application software to ease deployment.- EMC supports automated client deployment, and supports NAS (CIFS/NFS), VTL, OST, and DDBoost protocols.
  • Add features that optimize storage efficiency and security and provide a more cohesive DR approach such as data deduplication, encryption, or replication.- All EMC solutions leverage highly efficient deduplication algorithms as well as encryption in flight and/or at rest. Replication is optimized by sending only changed data across the WAN
  • Support virtualized server environments enabling customers to use the same tools to safeguard both physical and virtual infrastructure.- EMC supports both VMware and Hyper-V hypervisors and leverages the native tools built into these applications adding increased optimization and ease of use.

“At the close of 2011, EMC remained the revenue share leader, commanding 65.5% of the total $2.4 billion PBBA solutions market. IBM and HP followed, with 15.3% and 4.1% revenue share, respectively.
