Storrage, Inc. Expands On-Demand Personal Storage Solution to More Neighborhoods

Local Company Doubles Service Area to One Million and adds Sunday Service

SEATTLE, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to numerous requests from area residents, Storrage, the Seattle-based personal storage solution, is now available to more than one million local residents with the doubling of its service area and introduction of Sunday service, the company announced today. Launched in November 2013, Storrage now provides customers in 40 Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah and other Eastside zip codes with a convenient personal storage solution that uses a smartphone app for on-demand pickup and delivery to their doors.

"With more and more of our neighbors dealing with limited space, we are excited to be able to help them with our expanded service area and Sunday service," said Terry Drayton, founder and CEO of Storrage. "Our customers say that they want to use their living space for living, not for storing infrequently used or seasonal items. With the living space customers have gotten back with Storrage, they are able to entertain more often, let a friend move in, do yoga in their apartment, or set up world headquarters for their new start-up." 

By utilizing mobile apps, cloud technology and good old fashioned service, Storrage helps customers reclaim their crowded closets, balconies, basements, garages and living spaces without ever having to leave their homes. Customers typically store items that they use once a year or for a season – keeping decorations, seasonal clothes, documents, camping gear, keepsakes, bikes, golf clubs, skis and snowboards within reach.

The Storrage app – available for free on iPhone, iPad and Android devices – allows customers to request next-day home pickup and delivery. Most customers start with delivery of empty commercial-grade containers, which they can easily fill, name and tag with photos of the contents. Then they use the app to schedule pickup, available Tuesday through Sunday in one-hour windows between noon and 8 p.m. Storrage stores the containers in a secure facility until the customers need their items, which are retrieved using the app to schedule next-day delivery to their doorstep.

As Seattle's housing market continues to tighten and get more expensive, so does the need for affordable, secure, off-site personal storage. Storrage's service allows customers to take control of their living space on their terms.

"Seattle rent and utilities costs are on the rise, and the cost of self-storage is high, at an average of $175 a month," Drayton added. "We designed our service with all Seattle and Eastside residents in mind—from the student to the senior citizen—which is why we priced our all-in cost at around $25 a month for the average customer. And new customers can get started for only one dollar."

The expanded service area includes the following zip codes in Seattle and on the Eastside: 98004, 98005, 98006, 98007, 98008, 98027, 98029, 98033, 98034, 98039, 98040, 98052, 98053, 98056, 98057, 98059, 98074, 98075, 98101, 98102, 98103, 98104, 98105, 98107, 98109, 98112, 98115, 98116, 98117, 98119, 98121, 98122, 98125, 98133, 98144, 98155, 98177, 98178, 98195 and 98199.

The announcement comes on the heels of Storrage's recent move to a new expanded warehouse space. The new warehouse capacity is four times as large as the previous space; standing at 10,000 square feet with enough room for up to 25,000 containers. The secure, climate-controlled warehouse is suitable for storing almost anything.

Storrage plans to continue growing in 2014 by launching a Storrage franchise program offered to veterans and expand to another state. For more information, to watch a video showing how the service works and to download the Storrage mobile app, visit http://www.storrage.com/.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
FinTechs use the cloud to operate at the speed and scale of digital financial activity, but are often hindered by the complexity of managing security and compliance in the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sesh Murthy, co-founder and CTO of Cloud Raxak, showed how proactive and automated cloud security enables FinTechs to leverage the cloud to achieve their business goals. Through business-driven cloud security, FinTechs can speed time-to-market, diminish risk and costs, maintain continu...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
