The total amount of data created and replicated worldwide reached 64.2 zettabytes in 2020, according to market researcher IDC, and is continuing to grow at a CAGR of 23 percent. That means the total “global datasphere” will reach 181 zettabytes in 2025.
Statistics like those make database administrators, who have to manage, organize and process all that data, shudder. To make productive use of ever-growing volumes of data, businesses and organizations need the right database technology to manage massive volumes of data and make it available for transactional and analytical applications.
As part of the CRN 2022 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 include providers of database technology designed for running enterprise applications and processing huge numbers of transactions. They also include developers of database software focused on the data analysis tasks companies use to get insight into their business and gain competitive advantages.
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 platforms, data warehouse systems, data management and integration software, data science and machine learning 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.
