It’s not easy to select the storage booths only using the CeBIT’s catalog. That’s the reason we did it for you.

We have found 116 exhibitors that are going to present storage hardware,
software or services this year, against 142 in 2008, 153 in 2007 and a
record 236 in 1999. This lower figure can be explained by three reasons:

  • 1/ The crisis
  • 2/ CeBIT is more and more a show for CE products and less and
    less an IT professional exhibition; consequently, computer giants are
    reluctant to continue to invest in this exhibition.
  • 3/ These
    last years, there was a lot of recordable optical disc or flash keys manufacturers,
    mainly from Asia. But these markets are less attractive or too competitive. A lot of
    them disappeared and many of the surviving companies remained
    at home.
    Maybe some of them want also to avoid this time to see the German police investigating their booth for infringing patent licensing.

To name a few of the missing storage companies at the coming show,
compared to 2008: big ones like EMC, Cisco, LG, Philips, Sony or SanDisk, but also AMCC, Arkeia, BlueArc, Ciprico, CMC, Iomega, LaserCard, Lead Data, Overland, Plasmon, and Texas Memory.

The huge Hall 1 will be closed, as last year, and a lot of storage companies will be exhibiting in Hall 2 this year.

In the alphabetic list below, some companies do not have their own booth but are hosted by one of their distributors. This is not a definitive list as we generally discover new storage actors during our visit of the show.
