Xyratex Is World's Largest OEM Storage System Supplier For Fifth Consecutive Year

HAVANT, United Kingdom, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced that it ranks as the world's #1 provider of OEM disk storage systems for the fifth consecutive year, according to a new report from IDC. The recently published report, entitled "Worldwide Disk Storage Systems 2012 Vendor Shares," notes that Xyratex holds a 50.1 percent share of the OEM disk storage systems market, over 20 percent more than the second-ranked company on the list.

"As the statistics show, Xyratex and our enterprise-class solutions like OneStorâ„¢ continue to deliver the best the market has to offer with regard to storage performance, reliability and value. This powerful combination has translated into tremendous end user experiences," said Todd Gresham, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Xyratex. "We're proud of our ranking and status as the clear leader in this category, and we look forward to continuing to deliver success in this space in the years to come."

"Xyratex has now topped our rankings of storage system OEM suppliers for five consecutive years, which is a testament to their product family, partner community and ability to execute," said Amita Potnis, senior research analyst of storage systems at IDC. "We've seen that end users are increasingly driving more efficiency from their storage infrastructures while striving to minimize cost and maximize value. This creates opportunities for suppliers like Xyratex who deliver back-end solutions that help OEMs provide superior capabilities and benefits."

The OneStor family of data storage systems from Xyratex offers a series of storage building blocks end users can deploy in a variety of ways to accommodate their most demanding storage requirements. These next-generation storage solutions consolidate both server and storage into a single storage computing platform, eliminating additional hardware costs, minimizing footprint requirements and simplifying cabling and installation. They also enable OEMs to deliver more powerful intelligent storage solutions along with their most advanced software capabilities directly to end users. For more information, visit

In addition, the OneStor architecture is a key building block of the ClusterStorâ„¢ family of data storage solutions that deliver a new standard in file system performance, scalability and efficiency for high performance computing (HPC) users. Its innovative architecture brings together what were previously discrete server, network and storage platforms with their own separate software layers, into a single integrated modular scale out storage building block. This approach enables the solution to scale both performance and capacity while aggressively reducing space, power and administrative overhead. The HPC storage market continues to show strong signs of growth, and ClusterStor has achieved significant adoption in this market space in a relatively short time. For more information, visit
