Zadara Storage Accelerates Momentum with Record 2015 Results

Zadara Storage, the provider of award-winning, enterprise–class storage-as-a-service (STaaS) today announced record revenue in 2015. The company’s success can be attributed to delivering industry-leading solutions in a market that is in a significant transition from CapEx-based storage to one dominated by OpEx-based storage-as-a-service. Zadara Storage offers unique and disruptive capabilities that address this market transition, such as enterprise-grade storage-as-a-service – in the cloud, on-premise and in hybrid configurations. Industry research has shown that the storage-as-a-service market will grow from about 10% of the overall storage market in 2015, to at least 80% by 2023 (source: IT Brand Pulse, October 2015).

“2015 was a record year for Zadara Storage, both in terms of revenue and customer adoption,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO and co-founder of Zadara Storage. “We are seeing an increasing demand from customers of all sizes for flexible, agile, enterprise storage-as-a-service. Zadara has responded to this market need with award-winning solutions in the cloud, on-premise and in hybrid configurations. We are continuing to innovate and invest to maintain our leadership position in this large and rapidly growing market.”
