Eight data storage startup vendors to watch in 2018
This article is part of the Storage magazine issue of January 2018, Vol. 16, No. 11
The new year brings a fresh batch of enterprise-focused data storage startup vendors. The eight newcomers on this list have launched products that revolve around growth sectors, including flash, hybrid cloud, scale-out file systems and object storage. Their arrival dovetails with the proximate foundering of several vendors that made past years' lists of startups to watch. Among the 2017 casualties were Coho Data, DataGravity and Formation Data Systems. All went belly up or sold off assets last year, signifying the headwinds facing startups. Still, the storage market leaves room for newcomers to make their mark. Presented alphabetically, here is our 2018 list of data storage startup companies to watch in the coming months.

Even as other storage startup companies fail, newcomers have appeared to take on established enterprise vendors. Can they ride the momentum for flash, hybrid cloud and SDS?
Businesses want data backup that handles more data than ever, but with software and hardware that's easier to implement and manage than what they're already using.
The software-defined approach to storage is catching on. However, for now, enterprises prefer preconfigured SDS products bundled with hardware for easier deployment.
Since it doesn't lose data during power outages, persistent memory will revolutionize direct-attached storage in particular and the cost/performance ratio of computing overall.

Easy to implement and manage may be the buzzwords of the day for enterprise data storage systems, but too often daily experiences of IT professionals belie that rosy scenario.
The advent of NVMe, software-defined storage and other newer storage technologies doesn't mean we'll be looking at all-silicon-based storage any time soon.
Embracing automation through concepts like composable infrastructure cuts back on the use of manual IT tasks, which inhibit the success of digital business.
Risk-averse enterprises finally accepted the cloud in 2017, and we didn't even notice. Expect the same for these data storage technology trends in the new year.
