Hive was born of a desire to offer an affordable storage solution with features that are traditionally only found in more expensive systems. We wanted Hive to be different from the rest of the pack and to offer a genuine protection against down-time and data loss. If you need a rock solid system, built with enterprise class components and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that a storage specialist will turn up on your doorstep in the event of a technical problem, Hive is for you. If, on the other hand, you want a storage device that you can fill up with a variety of old and new disk drives at your own discretion, please look elsewhere.
In January 2012 Hive (and its sister brand, United Digital) was sold to the Danish distribution company EET Europarts (www.eeteuroparts.com), and moved its corporate HQ as well as its production and logistics facilities to Denmark. See the announcement of the sale here.
We fully appreciate the responsibility we undertake when we sell a storage system. Our customers don’t just buy pieces of hardware: they buy technology which they’ll entrust their livelihood to; a box which will contain their years of hard work. If something goes wrong, help needs to be provided without any delay. This is the philosophy behind Hive, and the reason why there is no alternative for serious professionals. Hive is for people who are prepared.
