The History of DataSpan

Where it All Started

In 1974, we opened our doors for business as Media Recovery, dedicated to helping data centers optimize their use of magnetic tape and printer ribbons through recycling.

Since then, we have grown into one of the largest distributors of data storage products and services in the country, with more than half of the Fortune 1,000 as clients.

Becoming DataSpan

Where We Are Today

In 2008, we renamed our company DataSpan, to better reflect on how we’ve used our innovation and expertise to bridge the needs of our clients and store, access, and protect client data through a company’s entire lifespan.

In 2014, DataSpan was acquired by Sharon and Paul Zaidins. The acquisition of DataSpan was sponsored by Bonefish Capital and selected as a finalist for the 2015 D CEO Magazine M&A Awards. The two now own 100% of the company, and are focusing on growing the business to ensure cutting-edge data lifecycle management practices. Through it all, we’ve been here for businesses like yours.
