There is a lot of excitement in the halls of HP, as well there should be. According to shipment numbers published by IDC last week, HP showed Q3 '15 storage revenue growth of 16% (Q3 '14/Q3 '15) while the other major vendors lost ground. HP gained 2 points of overall market share while market leader EMC lost 2 points. At the end of Q3 2014, HP was 6 points behind EMC in market share, now its only 2.1 points behind.

Commvault recently added new enterprise file sync and share capabilities (EFSS) to its Endpoint Data Protection Solution Set. Commvault File Sharing will help end-users securely store, access, and share files from virtually anywhere, at any time, on any device. The EFSS capabilities address not only the burgeoning need for secure file sharing among business end-users so that sensitive data is protected, but also the critical need for organizations to more easily demonstrate compliance with regulatory and government requirements through further securing and protecting those files with an integrated endpoint backup solution. These new capabilities could give Commvault a competitive advantage in the file sharing and collaboration market, where most other offerings lack any means for secure collaboration in combination with an efficient endpoint data protection strategy.
