IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that leading industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM as the market share leader in its Dataquest Insight evaluation of major Storage Services vendors just released this month.*

The June 2007 report “Dataquest Insight: Storage Services Market Leaders, 2006: Tight Race for Second Place” examined nine storage services companies and determined IBM as the leader with 21.1 percent market share, with the nearest competitor having a 7.7 percent share.

“We believe our unwavering commitment to providing world-class storage services to our global clients has led to this important milestone,” said Paul Fried, vice president for Storage and Data Services, IBM Global Technology Services. “We are honored by Gartner’s recognition of our continued leadership in storage services. IBM helps its clients to store, manage and leverage data so they can focus on what matters to them, the growth and innovation of their business and leveraging information on demand.”

IBM is the largest storage services provider worldwide and has more than 100 System Storage Solution Centers. IBM Global Technology Services uses methodologies and prior engagement experiences to offer solutions that help maximize operational effectiveness and gain competitive advantage while minimizing costs for clients.

In the first quarter of 2007, IBM Global Technology Services acquired privately held data migration specialist Softek Storage Solutions Corp. into its storage and data services business unit.
