Is that how you define a flash array, IDC?

IDC expanded:

As of Q4/15, Dell and HDS did not have any storage arrays that met our definition of an All Flash Array even though they have all–flash configurations of arrays that we consider to be Hybrid Flash Arrays or HFAs so they are not in the this table of AFA vendor revenues.

So we have a Gartner-like exclusion policy operating to classify AFAs that can have disk in their configurations not to be AFAs.

Kaminario has much larger revenues than Violin but we are not releasing those publicly they are still a privately held vendor that does not want us to share that data so we collect the data from them to make the overall market revenue accurate but they are not broken out separately – their revenues appear in the Others category.

Thanks for the explanation, IDC.

That puts NetApp in striking distance of Pure and wouldn't the Kurian clan be pleased, so truly, madly, deeply pleased, to pass Pure next quarter.

* Violin's lQ4 2015 quarter was a $10.9m one, indicating a $44m run rate.
