Samsung leads the global enterprise SSD market
Already a world leader in advanced memory technology, Samsung has just managed to get the first spot in the enterprise SSD market. According to a few analyst firms, the company is now supplying most enterprise SSDs used in corporate data centers and managed to increase its market share with over 50 percent since last year.
According to a report by IDC quoted by Samsung, they "rose to the leader position in Enterprise SSD sales in Q1 of this year, with the IDC data showing Samsung at 32.4 percent compared to the second place finisher with 16.9 percent." The numbers depend on the analyst firm, since Forward Insights mentioned a 34 percent share, while TrendFocus charted Samsung with no less than 45 percent.
Samsung currently has over 18 SSD families aiming the enterprise market, offering more than 100 different SKUs. In the consumer market, Samsung has been the leader for no less than six years, so it is not a surprise to find out they dominate the enterprise market as well.
