30% Increase In Year-Over-Year Backup Appliance Growth

September 25

We’re excited to see industry growth, and the backup appliance market continues to grow steadily. According to the International Data Corporation, their Worldwide Quarterly Purpose-Built Backup Appliance Tracker has posted a year-over-year increase of 29.8% for Worldwide Purpose-Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) in total factory revenue. This is barely under $657.4 million of revenue in 2Q12—that’s a more than $150 million dollar total increase in revenue in 2Q12 over 2Q11; a cool 27.7% increase for our growing industry.

We’re in the business of backup, and cousin, business is a-boomin’!

Note: According to the article, IDC defines a purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) as a standalone disk-based solution that utilizes software, disk arrays, server engine(s), or nodes that are used for a target for backup data and specifically data coming from a backup application or can be tightly integrated with the backup software to catalog, index, schedule, and perform data movement.
