For the third year in a row, we are ranking the top 15 most promising storage start-ups for their technology – not necessary the most growing in term of revenue. It’s not easy to classify these start-ups because they are involved in completely different technologies (advanced memories, components, subsystems, connectivity, software, etc). But we did it. This ranking is the result of the opinion of a journalist – not a consultant or an expert – following daily the worldwide storage industry, considering of course the technology of each company, but also the amount of their financial rounds of funding last year as we suspect that VCs have generally a good looking at technology and put their money in promising companies. Anybody else trying to the do the same ranking will get different results.
Actifio was named in the Top 15 in 2012.
