List: As flash becomes more popular, the competition between vendors heats up.
NetApp isn’t a new player in the flash market, although it was slightly late to the game, but it has recently rocketed into second place position in the market.
The company saw a 238.2% revenue growth from Q1 2015 to Q1 2016, raking in $181.1m and grabbing hold of 22.8% of the market, according to IDC.
One of the boosts to NetApp’s flash storage business came through the acquisition of SolidFire for $870m.
The acquisition has helped the company to provide offerings across the three largest market segments, traditional enterprise infrastructure buyer, application owner, and the next-generation infrastructure buyer.
The company is aiming to provide a similar style infrastructure as the likes of Amazon Web Services, and Google.
