There has been a lot of news about consolidation in the storage industry as of late. In August, Seagate announced it would acquire array vendor Dot Hill, and later in October EMC and Dell announced their deal. Shortly after, Western Digital announced its acquisition of SanDisk that had taken over Fusion-io in 2014. Most recently, HPE acquired SimpliVity for $650M and Nimble Storage for $1B.
With all this activity, the dust hasn’t settled and the clear leaders have not emerged. One day I am hoping to claim that ioFABRIC’s revenues exceed those of the big players, but for today, I am happy to report that ioFABRIC has been listed in the Top 10 Fastest Growing Storage Companies by Silicon Review.
Congratulations to my dedicated team for this great recognition. Storage is the industry to watch in 2017! We are up the challenge and welcome the competition.
