Global enterprise storage systems factory revenue dropped 7% year over year to $8.2bn during the first quarter of this year, with Hewlett Packard Enterprise HPE and EMC finishing in a statistical tie for the top position, according to International Data Corporation IDC .

IDC declares a statistical tie in the global enterprise storage systems market if there is less than 1% difference in the revenue share of two or more vendors.

NetApp held the next position with 7.9% of spending.

IDC said IBM and Dell rounded out the top five in a statistical tie with a 7.9% and 6.9% share, respectively.

The total all flash array market generated $794.8m in Q1, up 87.4% year over year, and the hybrid flash array segment of the market generated $2.2bn in revenue and 26.5% market share.

"Spending on server-based storage was up, spending on traditional external arrays continues to decline, while the nature of hyperscale business leads it to fluctuate heavily with that market segment seeing a heavy decline in 1Q16."
