More About 45 Drives

Full transparency, we work a little differently around here. Ultimately, we believe too many people exist without finding joy and meaning in their everyday jobs. We spend at least 1/3 of our lives working, so to do this and not be fulfilled or find purpose is just wrong. We create workplaces where our people want to come to work in the morning and feel good when they go home at the end of the day. This isn’t just a career move; it’s a leap towards a fulfilling, purpose-driven future. 

At our core, we create big, strong, fast storage solutions that allow our customers to properly manage their storage needs, and scale as they grow – all at a fraction of the cost of legacy enterprise storage or cloud. We are ‘new enterprise’ in that we provide enterprise-level solutions but under an open-platform/open-source model. We work with some of the most innovative companies in the world and some of the most well-known YouTube influencers.  Our marketing is a combination of cutting-edge video and social techniques, along with more conventional state-of-the-art account-based marketing.
