True North is excited to Demo Datrium Storage for both Cloud solutions and on-premise consulting engagement projects.  The initial Demo agreement was signed and submitted to Datrium this morning.  We plan to roll their solution into our Seattle data facility for testing by multiple internal departments here at True North.

Our Cloud team will evaluate its possible use for various cloud services including IaaS and Cloud Recovery.

Our Solutions team will evaluate its possible fit for our vast on-premise client base.  Many of our customers in the SMB space are looking to leverage the latest cost effective high performance storage.

It is imperative that True North maintain a mindful awareness of all solutions in the marketplace and thoroughly vet all front runners in their respective technology space.  We believe that Datrium can provide a high performance cost effective solution for many of our customers.


“Datrium is revolutionizing storage with the world’s first Server Powered Storage platform. We are leveraging un-utilized cores and commodity SSD’s in your servers to drive server-side storage performance.  The industry considers us a blend of all flash arrays and hyper-converged.  With our first product, we are faster than all-flash, as simple as hyper-converged without the lock-ins, and half the cost-per-gig of hybrid arrays”.  — Ben Hass/Director of Sales – NW

The storage space is full of vendors trying to explain how “we do it a little different”.  That is by far the most overheard phrase at any Virtualization event in the last 5 years.

Testing new solutions and evaluating potential partnerships is time and resource consuming for all parties involved.  True North is eager to work with Datrium and we feel that the Datrium product and the Datrium team shares our focus to deliver the best possible experience to our customer base.  It’s been a pleasure working with the Datrium staff to date and we look forward to testing their storage solution and hopefully building a successful partnership.
