Unstructured data growth and cloud data migrations drive demand for analytics-first approach to enterprise storage, backup and cloud investments
San Jose, CA – January 13, 2021 – Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven data management as a service, today announced it achieved record growth in 2020, despite the challenges of the pandemic. Key growth drivers included: unstructured data under management grew by over 300%, a record number of major enterprises signed up as new customers, and the company expanded key strategic partnerships in 2020. Ideally suited for IT organizations dealing with petabyte-scale volumes of unstructured data across on-premises and cloud infrastructures, Komprise puts customers – not storage, backup, or cloud vendors – in control of their data so they can easily analyze, move, manage and harness data anywhere.
“2020 was a difficult year for everyone, which is why we are extremely grateful to our customers, partners and employees for helping us achieve another year of strong growth,” said Kumar Goswami, co-founder and CEO of Komprise. “As our customers transition from cost savings and efficiency to driving more value from their data, Komprise is ideally suited to be the independent platform of choice to easily analyze, move and manage file and object data at any scale.”
