Why do they even call it a backup appliance? Just call it an EMC

Re: Market share?

it should have read revenue share

in that case EMC usually wins anyway

Market share?

so is this 70% of the 1% that uses backup appliances?

I expect quite a number of cases of 'backup software on a commodity, but dedicated' servers are in use, but left out of the market overview

Backups? Use disk. Archives? Disk. Particle accelerators? Fine, tape

Re: @Praise tapes

So tapes are difficult to use.

Apart from the obvious downside, there is an advantage that it's also not easy to accidentally wipe backups from tapes (physically) from within an application/command line.

Ok, perhaps drying the water-damaged tapes in the micowave wasn't a good idea
