SAN JOSE, CA – September 11, 2019 — / — Cohesity has been named to the Forbes 2019 Cloud 100, a ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. This latest honor adds to what has already been an impressive year of accolades for Cohesity, including being named a 2019 CNBC Disruptor and achieving a top rating — 5-Star — in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.

“The cloud represents an enormous opportunity for companies to increase agility, reduce costs, optimize data management, and maximize the value of their data,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and founder, Cohesity. “It is gratifying to be recognized by Forbes for our contributions in empowering customers to consolidate siloed data infrastructure in the cloud, on-prem, and at the edge using one web-scale platform that also solves mass data fragmentation and enables organizations to extract maximum value from their data.”

As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2019 Cloud 100, Bessemer Venture Partners received submissions from hundreds of cloud startups. The Cloud 100 Judging Panel, made up of public cloud company CEOs, reviewed the data to select, score, and rank the top 100 private cloud companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%).

“The private cloud ecosystem has matured, making the competition to land one of the coveted spots on the Cloud 100 list steeper than ever,” said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “In fact, the average valuation of a company on our inaugural list just four years ago was $1 billion, while the average valuation on this year’s list spiked to $1.7 billion. Our 2019 Cloud 100 includes over 60 private cloud unicorns! These founders represent the absolute best in cloud computing today, and they will most certainly follow in the footsteps of our esteemed Cloud 100 alumni. In total, already 25 Cloud 100 alumni have gone public, and dozens have been acquired for over $1 billion each. Congratulations to these cloud leaders!”

“For four years now, we have ranked the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. “With so many businesses growing fast in the cloud, from cybersecurity and marketing to data analytics and storage, it’s harder than ever to make the Cloud 100 list – but with more elite company if you do. Congratulations to each of the 2019 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars honorees poised to join their ranks!”

The Forbes 2019 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at and will appear in the September 2019 issue of Forbes magazine.
