This article is regularly updated when we will get more information from other companies.
Yearly since 2013, we are ranking the top fastest growing storage companies in sales, either start-ups, private or public firms, here from 2018 to 2019 (calendar year or fiscal year), based on published figures only.
They are all privately held – but four – and rarely reveal the exact figure of their sales but revenue growth percentage only.
In 2018 ten public companies deserved a position in our ranking: Box, Dell, Dropbox, Everspin, Mellanox, Mimecast, Nutanix, Pure Storage, Qualstar and SK Hynix. For 2019 they are Dropbox, Mellanox and Pure Storage already listed last year, plus Cloudera.
One company recorded 500% growth in 2018, Rubrik, two recorded 400% yearly growth Excelero and WekaIO, then Portworx 376%, Cohesity 300% and Talon 128% with 7 firms at more than 100%. For the following year, WekaIO is on top with 600% followed by Humio (550%), Datera (325%) and Portworx (200%), and this time six at more than 100%. The record was 800% by Nakivo in 2013.
Here are companies being on top list for two consecutive years: Mellanox, MSys Technologies, One Stop Systems, Portworx, Pure Storage, Talon Storage and WekaIO.
Remark than Dell was listed last year with +50% and Micron with 50%, these percentages diminishing to 7% and -33%, respectively, in 2019.
We think Acronis, Cloudera, Dropbox, Mellanox 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.
