SAN JOSE, Calif. – Sept. 12, 2019 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced year over year market share and revenue growth in enterprise storage during the second quarter of 2019, according to the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker. HPE and New H3C’s 1.5 percent market share gain and 13.5 percent revenue growth stands out amidst a market that declined .8 percent overall1, and in which the other two vendors in the top three – Dell and NetApp – posted year over year declines.

In addition, according to IDC, HPE and New H3C grew revenue 22.7 percent and gained 2.8 points of market share in all flash array, a strategic storage market for customers.

HPE maintains a strong presence in China through a unique partnership with New H3C, in which HPE owns a 49 percent stake and the Chinese company Unisplendour Corporation owns a 51 percent share. This structure enables HPE to participate in the fastest-growing IT market in the world, through HPE’s sale of products to New H3C for resale in the China market.
