“We find that companies that are willing to maintain these systems on their own for production workloads are very reluctant to recreate the environment in a separate location for DR purposes,” stated Chuck Piluso, CEO, DSC. “This is one of our biggest opportunities because we can maintain customers’ DR solutions for significantly less money and eliminate the IT overhead associated with maintaining it themselves.”
DTST has a small float – around 7.65M according to the OTC – and can really start to fly on the drop of a hat. The stock flew up this way earlier in the year and fell back down to earth and there were pumping rumors all the while. That said, investors should be on guard here as well.
Now commanding a market cap of $31.39M, DTST is seeing volume over 2M today.
