iXsystems Sees Annual Growth Exceeding 50%

With Year-Over-Year Sales Growing, iXsystems Commands an Ever-Expanding Share of the Enterprise Storage Market

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - iXsystems, an industry leader in enterprise storage and servers driven by Open Source, announced that in 2015 it experienced a doubling of unit shipments and a growth in revenue of 50% for the second consecutive year. Over the last two years storage shipments have more than doubled and storage under management has grown to over half an exabyte.

Key to this growth is iXsystems' position as a vendor that challenges both legacy and start-up competitors in the storage industry. Since shipping its first TrueNAS enterprise storage array in 2011, thousands of customers around the world have turned to iXsystems for TrueNAS arrays, including HEALTHCAREfirst in Springfield MO, the General Atomics-operated DIII-D National Fusion Facility in San Diego CA, 1stAveMachine in New York City NY, and The Mullard Space Science Laboratory of University College London in the UK. In 2015, iXsystems significantly expanded its reseller channel in response to the rising customer demand across the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia-Pacific.

"We are not another storage startup; we have 20 years of experience building data center solutions for some of the largest and most forward-thinking companies in the world. Many of our competitors need to put short-term goals ahead of customer success because they've received venture capital and are under pressure by those investors to bring fast returns. In contrast, iXsystems has been self-directed and self-funded from the start, meaning we can put long term customer success as our first priority and have built our reputation by doing just that," said Brett Davis, Executive Vice President of iXsystems. "Over the past year we grew our customer base by more than 100 percent and our revenue grew by more than 50 percent. So far in 2016, we are already well poised to surpass our goals in new client acquisition, revenue, and company growth to make this yet another banner year. We want to thank our customers for our record-setting growth in the midst of the current churn throughout the enterprise storage industry."

The iXsystems data storage product line uses the trusted OpenZFS storage platform in solutions that meet the needs of home and enterprise users alike. Our solutions stair-step from the compact and efficient FreeNAS Mini and Mini XL systems aimed for home and small office users, through the rack-mountable FreeNAS Certified systems, and up to the enterprise-class TrueNAS systems. iXsystems has storage solutions available to meet nearly any customer need from a few terabytes to multiple petabytes of data and full-rack data center server solutions tailored for web-scale, virtualization, big data, private cloud, and virtually any enterprise business need.
