When it comes to storing, protecting, managing, migrating, and manipulating data, regardless of whether it‘s on-premises, in the cloud, or both, there is no lack of new data storage companies entering the market. The underlying trends related to storage continue to change, but the ability for inventors and investors to come up with new ways to work with data doesn’t.
Data storage is a fast-moving industry, and it falls on storage startups to find new ways to advance the technology. Some will become successful on their own, some will be acquired by larger companies to make the technology part of a greater whole, and yes, some will fail. But all will leave their mark in the future of storage.
That future is constantly changing. CRN keeps a close watch on the key emerging data storage trends, including the fact that businesses are now more focused on how data impacts their top and bottom lines and how it advances their mission, and increasingly less on how or where or on which brand the data is stored.
The following 10 data storage startups are working on the leading edge of helping customers advance their missions. Click through the slideshow to learn more about them.
