Revenues up across the board for all major storage vendors, IDC says

High-end storage systems, or those with a sticker price of more than $250,000, came in with the highest sequential growth across all storage segments, according to Amita Potnis, IDC's senior research analyst for storage systems.

"After significant declines during the 2009 crisis and the strong recovery in 2010, the high-end revenue market share is now 30.2%, thus bouncing back to the 2008 pre-crisis levels," she said in a statement.

Potnis said there were multiple reasons for the high-end system growth, most notably user demand for storage consolidation and data center upgrades supported by a "new product push from a number of vendors."
