Emerging Storage Vendors To Know In 2019

The New Generation Of Storage Leaders

The global datasphere, the collective total of digital data, is expected to explode from 33 zettabytes last year to 175 zettabytes by 2025, according to an IDC report. While some of that will reside in PCs, smartphones and other devices, a great deal of it will be stored in traditional data center systems and in public and private cloud storage systems.

IT managers are increasingly challenged to effectively store and manage all that data, tasks that require increasingly sophisticated data storage, archiving, backup and disaster recovery technologies and services – either for on-premise use of in the cloud.

While the IT industry’s leading vendors are all big players in data storage, startups develop many of the most innovative technologies being offered today – in hardware, software and cloud services – for primary storage, secondary storage and archiving, backup and disaster recovery.

As part of CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors coverage, here are 13 hot storage and disaster recovery startups, founded in 2013 or later, that solution providers should be aware of.
