All-flash array flogger Nimbus Data: We COINED IT in 2013

Upstart claims revenue doubled

Mobile application security vulnerability report

All-flash array firm Nimbus Data released results from the year to date, saying it had had a great 2013.

It claimed:

  • Revenue more than doubled compared to 2012,
  • Net income grew more than 4 times compared to 2012,
  • Headcount grew 125 per cent compared 2012,
  • More than 500 Nimbus Data storage arrays are now in production worldwide,
  • Opened new sales and engineering office in Austin, Texas.

Nimbus claims: “Revenue, Net Income and Headcount Growth Outpace Industry Peers.” On the the hand, flash rival Pure Storage just a few weeks ago claimed its growth over the 2012-2013 period has included 50 per cent plus growth per quarter.

Nimbus's Austin office opening was followed by layoffs.

Back in March last year, after we ran a Nimbus staff leaving story, Nimbus said: “Company headcount has doubled in the last 12 months, not shrunk as you have claimed.”

A 125 per cent head count growth could mean the company has around 50 employees now, compared to 22 or so a year ago.

We expect more product news this year, CEO Thomas Isakovich saying: “In 2014, we expect to continue to widen our technology leadership with multiple new software and hardware offerings that push the boundaries of storage efficiency and application performance.”
