Editor:- It gives me great pleasure to introduce the 6th annual edition of's list of the Fastest Growing Storage Companies. Many storage companies are now reporting revenue growth rates of 20%, or 25%. But that wasn't enough to get you into the top 10 list for this year. 34% revenue growth was the minimum entry requirement.

If you're looking for successful companies to buy from, or successful companies to partner with these are the companies you cannot ignore.

Unlike previous years where most of the high growth was concentrated in a few market segments - this year there was good revenue growth reported in a wide range of storage segments.

Who makes the fastest SSDs?

Speed isn't everything, and it comes at a price.
But if you do need the speediest SSD (chip, card, module or rackmount) then wading through the web sites of hundreds of SSD oems to shortlist products slows you down.

And the SSD search problem will get even worse as we head towards a market with over 1,000 SSD oems.
