Over 28 exabytes of storage shipped last quarter

More than 28 billion gigabytes of storage shipped last quarter. Lucas Mearian. Computerworld. June 30, 2015.
Worldwide data storage hardware sales increased 41.4% over the same quarter in 2014. This past quarter, 28.3 exabytes of capacity was shipped out.  Traditional external arrays decreased while demand strongly increased for server-based storage and hyperscale infrastructure (distributed infrastructures that support cloud and big data processing, and can scale to thousands of servers). The largest revenue growth was in the server market (new server sales and not just upgrades to existing server infrastructures).  The most popular external storage arrays were all-flash models and hybrid flash arrays that combine NAND flash with hard disk drives.
