CRN’s list of 10 data storage startups that made recent headlines as they came out of stealth or unveiled their first cloud storage, disaster recovery, and other innovations includes companies that story and protect data, manage it, or make it useful

Calamu in April exited stealth with a seed round of funding worth $2.4 million and plans to bring technology to let data automatically self-heal in the event of a data breach or ransomware attack.
