Part 2 of CRN’s Big Data 100 takes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the database system space.

Running The Bases

By 2025 the total amount of digital data generated, gathered, copied and consumed is expected to exceed 180 zettabytes. That’s the kind of statistic that gives CIOs, database administrators and other IT executives nightmares.

To make productive use of the ever-growing volumes of data, businesses and organizations need the right database technology to manage all that data and make it available for transactional and analytical applications.

Not surprisingly, the database market is one of the largest and fastest-growing markets in all of software and is forecast to reach $123.4 billion in 2026, according to IDC.

As part of the CRN 2023 Big Data 100, we’ve put together the following list of database system companies—from well-established vendors to those in startup mode—that solution providers should be familiar with.

These vendors offer next-generation relational database systems that can handle growing volumes of data and transactions, analytical databases designed to process complex queries against huge data sets, and more specialized systems such as graph databases and time series databases.

This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in a series of slide shows, organized by technology category, spotlighting vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data warehouse and data lake systems, data management and integration software, data observability tools, and big data systems and cloud platforms.

Some vendors market big data products that span multiple technology categories. They appear in the slideshow for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.
