The Coolest Database System Companies Of The 2021 Big Data 100
Part 4 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the big data database system space.
The total volume of data created or replicated globally reached 64.2 zetabytes in 2020, according to market researcher IDC, and will continue to explode at a compound annual growth rate of 23 percent through 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 2021 Big Data 100, CRN has compiled a list of database system companies that solution providers should be aware of. They include more established vendors such as Redis Labs, MongoDB and MariaDB, but also many startups such as Cockroach Labs, PlanetScale and Rockset.
This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in slide shows, organized by technology category, with vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data management and integration software, data science and machine learning tools, and big data systems and 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.)
