Komprise Doubles Revenues in First Half of 2021

Strong revenue and customer growth prevail as IT organizations seek to right-place petabytes of unstructured data to cloud storage for savings and transparent data access.

Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven data management as a service, announced it achieved strong growth in the first half of 2021. Key growth drivers compared with the first half of 2020 included 97% revenue growth, 190% growth of new customers and 200% growth in average deal size.

“Enterprise organizations are looking for an easier path to the cloud for file data while not compromising access,” said Kumar Goswami, CEO of Komprise. “Customers are adopting Komprise because we not only find and move the right data to the cloud, but we tier data without users and applications noticing any change and without locking data in the cloud in a proprietary format.”

Komprise’s analytics-first approach enables enterprise customers to understand their data – what file types are stored where and usage patterns – so they can create policies to migrate or tier data to the optimal storage technology or cloud service. Users can map out different storage plans to analyze their cost savings and then use Komprise to execute and track migrations and/or continuous tiering of cold data to lower-cost storage.
