The 10 Coolest Storage Startups Of 2013


Primary Data

CEO: David Flynn

Salt Lake City, Utah-based stealth-mode enterprise software company Primary Data in November made itself known with the unveiling of the close of a $50 million financing round.

Primary Data also made waves because of its co-founders CEO David Flynn and CMO Rick White, both of whom co-founded flash storage vendor Fusion-io.

The company is developing what it called next-generation data virtualization and mobility technologies to manage how information is stored and shared globally, and it expects to bring its technology to market in the second quarter of 2014. That technology is touted as helping span data from flash storage through to the cloud.
