Global market revenue for enterprise external OEM storage systems declined 1.4 percent year over year to nearly $6.8 billion during the third quarter of 2020.
Total external OEM storage capacity shipped was up 9.6 percent to 18.9 exabytes during the third quarter.
Revenue generated by the group of original design manufacturers (ODMs) selling directly to hyperscale datacenters grew at 8.7 percent to $6.4 billion in 3Q20, while capacity shipped grew by 41.4 percent to 74.5 exabytes.
Total capacity shipments for the market (External OEM + ODM Direct + Server-Based Storage) increased 31.8 percent to 129.8 exabytes.
ODM vendors selling directly to hyperscale customers (i.e., ODM Direct) was once again a bright spot for the market. Collaboration tools and content delivery networks were key drivers of ODM sales as consumers continue to demand these types of at-home services on top of traditional enterprise-driven ODM Direct infrastructure consumption, Greg Macatee, research analyst, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC, said.
The total All Flash Array (AFA) market generated $2.7 billion in revenue during the quarter, up 0.5 percent year over year. The Hybrid Flash Array (HFA) market was worth nearly $2.8 billion in revenue but was down 0.7 percent from the year ago quarter.
Storage revenue in China grew 21.2 percent. Japan declined 4.4 percent, while EMEA was down 4.8 percent in aggregate, the United States was down 5.5 percent, Asia Pacific (excluding Japan and China) was down 7.5 percent, Canada declined 9.4 percent, and Latin America was down 14.8 percent, IDC said in its research report.
