I think Datum was an Orange County, CA company mostly.? They also did
tape formatters which were used with Pertec (also OC based for initial
time) to do NRZI and PE.? I recall that they were similar to the Pertec
units, might have been related.
A friend worked for them on projects doing programming for their logic
as well as design.? They probably bought the disk and fashioned logic
and systems to allow it to be used, maybe for a custom unit, or for some
mini at one time or another.

Some years ago I was on a mission to rack mount all my
computer and test equipment. I found three front panels at a hamfest that I planned to
use. I never did anything with them but still have them. These are from Datum systems,
but they appear to be rather hard to find much information on.
The short story is, if anyone needs them for something, let me know. I would hate to do
away with them if someone needs them. Two of the panels are marked:
Datum, inc Rotating Drum Memory 6008
Datum, inc Data Acquisition System 120
The last isn't marked.
A picture is here:
I will likely be moving in a few months and these are on the "get rid of"
