Two decades ago, Phu Hoang and Chinh Nguyen started a journey on their dream to design and build the best industrial embedded solid state storage and memory available. They called their company Virtium – derived from latin words for “integrity and excellence”. Along their journey, their dedication and ability to surround themselves with top industry talent has paid off. Today they share their dream with 100+ employees worldwide and enjoy year-over-year double-digit growth. Virtium manufactures solid state storage and memory solutions for the world’s top industrial embedded OEM customers. They design, build and support their products in the USA, and provide a dedicated software team for custom storage solutions – all fortified by a network of global locations. Their world-class technology and support provide a superior customer experience that continuously results in better industrial embedded products. As a Samsung-preferred partner, they give unparalleled access to specialty memory modules. Their quality products, long industry presence and knowledgeable, tenured experts have earned them the lasting trust of a deep customer base, including: IBM, GE, Alcatel, Nokia, Juniper and many others. Virtium was recently voted Innovator of the Year, 2017 by Orange County Business Journal. Today, Virtium continues to focus tightly on being the leading solid state storage and memory solutions provider in the industrial embedded space. While competing companies can provide products in this market, Virtium maintains its competitive edge by understanding key design concerns and tailoring its products to enable embedded designers to make the best possible solutions for their interconnected world.
