Top Fastest Growing Storage Companies in 2018

+500% for Rubrik, +400% for Excelero and WekaIO

Yearly since 2013, we are ranking the top fastest growing storage companies in sales, either start-ups, private or public firms, here from 2017 to 2018 (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 six – and about never reveal the exact figure of their sales, revenue growth percentage only.

In 2017, five public companies deserved a position in our ranking: Box, Micron, Nutanix and Pure Storage. This time they are ten: Box, Dell, Dropbox, Everspin, Mellanox, Mimecast, Nutanix, Pure Storage, Qualstar and SK Hynix.

This time one company recorded 500% growth,  two recorded 400% yearly growth: Excelero and WekaIO, then Portworx 376%, Cohesity 300% and Talon 128%. Last year there was also three of them grew more than 100%: Cohesity (600%), BlueData (330%) and N2WS Software, acquired by Veeam (102%).

Here are companies being our top list for two consecutive years: Box, Cohesity, Exagrid, Excelero, Micron, MSys Technologies and Talon Storage.

We think Box, Dell, Mellanox, Micron and Pure Storage 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 software, cloud and flash.
