Datrium Expands Operations to Europe Addressing Global Enterprise Demand for Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure for Hybrid Cloud
Former Dell EMC UK Sales Executive Appointed to Lead Operations in Europe
Datrium, the self-protecting enterprise cloud company, announced that it is expanding its global reach in Europe. This move will enable the company to provide real-time interaction for its existing regional customers and to connect with prospects throughout the continent. Datrium will focus on building out its UK presence this year––hiring and training new sales staff and developing relationships with organizations and partners throughout the region––with more ambitious expansion plans beginning in January 2020.
Enterprises globally have the same problems in simplifying compute and data management across on-premises and cloud environments, and many organizations in Europe have proven to be fast adopters of emerging, impactful technologies. Built to support even the most complex hybrid cloud environments, Datrium’s software-defined converged infrastructure is an agile and easy-to-manage solution for large enterprise data centers. Datrium’s advanced technology delivers high-performance primary storage and compute functionality, backup without separate purchasing and administration, as well as cloud disaster recovery automation—all from one solution. Further, Datrium software licenses have total portability across hardware types and deployment environments, whether on premises or in the cloud.
“The demand for cloud-enabled converged infrastructure has never been higher among enterprises worldwide. There’s multi-billion dollar market potential for Datrium as we build out our overseas operations,” said Tim Page, CEO of Datrium. “Datrium’s expansion comes at a critical time for our customers in Europe as they need IT systems that can provide the performance, scalability and capacity required by modern applications to keep pace with their changing business needs. We will continue to grow our European team with top-performing executives who possess a deep knowledge of the local markets and how to best address their specific requirements.”

Throughout his career, Sean has focused on disruptive technologies that deliver real business outcomes and enable customers to achieve the objectives most crucial to their company’s success.
