Top Fastest Growing Storage Companies in 2017

600% for Cohesity and then ...

Yearly since 2013, we are ranking the top fastest growing storage companies in sales, either start-ups, private or public firms, from 2016 to 2017 (calendar year or fiscal year), based on published figures only.

This ranking will be updated when we will get more information from other companies.

They are all privately held  – but three – and about never reveal the exact figure of their sales. But a bunch of them have published press releases demonstrating their growth in percentage of sales, bookings or in number of customers or units shipped. We have classified below these firms pending on their published growth.

In 2016, five public companies deserved a position in our ranking: Box, Carbonite, Mellanox, Micron, Nimble Storage (acquired by HPE) and Pure Storage. This time they are three: Box, Nutanix and Pure Storage.

This time just one firm surpasses 300% yearly growth: Cohesity with 600%. Last year they were two: StorPool (350%) and Unitrends (330%). In 2015 leaders were Vaultize (500%), Exablox acquired by StorageCraft (400%), Tegile (350%), Infinidat (331%), SoftNAS (330%) and Cloudian (300%).

Here are companies being in top list for two consecutive years: Box, MSys Technologies, Nakivo, Nutanix, Pivot3, Pure Storage and Veeam Software.

We think Box, Micron, Nutanix, Pure Storage and Veeam are the biggest ones in global revenue in our list and we suspect that few of other companies listed are profitable.

Of course we missed all the private storage companies that didn’t reveal anything on their financial activity. For two reasons: 1/ they are successful but neglect to inform us about it; 2/ they are not successful and prefer not divulge their results.

Among them, the majority is involved in backup software, cloud, all-flash or hyperconverged infrastructure.

Note: Other start-ups could be probably included in this table of fastest growing storage firms in 2017 but they didn’t prove it by publishing precisely their yearly growing figures: Archive360, Backup Everything, Cloudian, Compuverde, Ctera, Datrium, Hypergrid, Infinidat, MapR, Panzura, Quobyte, Rubrik, Talon Storage, Virtual Instruments.
