CRN looks at 10 startup storage vendors that in 2019 made headlines as they came out of stealth, unveiled their first storage products, or pursued acquisitions.

StorCentric

CEO: Mihir Shah

StorCentric is a most unusual storage startup. It came out of stealth last year by announcing the acquisition of two legacy storage vendors, prosumer-focused storage developer Drobo and midsize and enterprise storage developer Nexsan. In July of this year, StorCentric followed up with the acquisitions of SMB data protection vendor Retrospect and flash storage developer Vexata. The company expects acquisitions to continue being its primary driver for growth in the future.
