Worldwide Storage Software and Public Cloud Market Shares, 2Q20: Storage Software and PCS Markets Remain Resilient Despite Ongoing Pandemic
Published: October 9, 2020 Content info: 20 Pages

This IDC study provides a brief overview of the worldwide storage software and basic storage (infrastructure as a service [IaaS]) market performance during the second calendar quarter of 2020 (2Q20)."The worldwide storage software market performed surprisingly well during the second quarter, all things considered," said Greg Macatee, research analyst, Storage and Computing Infrastructure Software Platforms. "During 2Q20, the market grew 2.7% year over year (y/y), led by double-digit growth performances within the archiving and software-defined storage controller software (SDS-CS) functional markets, while data replication and protection (DR&P) revenue came in slightly positive on an annual compare. We reemphasize the value of cloud-based use cases within storage software, whose revenue during the quarter grew nearly 13% year over year between archiving and DR&P."
