Worldwide, storage software turned in revenues of $3.5 billion for the first calendar quarter – up 12.4 percent on the same quarter last year.
Within the sector, storage infrastructure was up 29.3 percent. Data protection and recovery accounted for $1.4 billion during the quarter.
IDC thinks that a desire to protect and improve corporate data is a prime driver in the marketplace.
