April - 2016 issue > 20 Most Promising Enterprise Storage Companies - 2016  



A decade back, a few hard disks were sufficient enough for any company to store their business as well as users data. The times have changed drastically now. With the advancements in technology, more people have started relying on businesses for their varied requirements, thus resulting in large amounts of data being produced each day. Despite having an in-house data center, the businesses are now relying on external data centers or expanding their in-house data center infrastructure to manage this massive data upsurge.

According to a recent survey, the global enterprise storage market is expected to witness a stable growth of 5-6 percent in the next five years and is expected to reach close to $38 billion by 2017. This can be mainly attributed to the increased adoption of cloud-based storage solutions, big data analytics and IoT by businesses on a massive scale. Even though there are a large number of enterprise storage service providers who offer multiple services at varying price range, very few have been successful in developing storage systems that are cost-effective, highly reliable, performance-oriented and less energy consuming.

With a vision to highlight such outstanding players and assist the businesses to efficiently manage & secure their user data, siliconindia brings out '20 Most Promising Enterprise Storage Companies - 2016'. A distinguished panel of industry's topmost CIOs, CEOs, VCs and industry experts including siliconindia's Editorial Board scrutinized the list of companies in different business touch points. The thorough analysis delved into business practices, services compared them against industry standards to ensure that the work is of best in class quality and finally led siliconindia to come up with the best companies in the Enterprise Storage domain. While this column intends to facilitate such outstanding companies, it also serves as a quick guide for people to partner with the best, who in-turn transform the Enterprise Storage space into one of the most sought-out verticals to operate in.
