What’s Clumio’s Technology Differentiation?
The startup is jumping into the IT world with a secure SaaS enterprise backup service to run on top of a cloud data fabric, including VMware Cloud for AWS and native AWS workloads. Built from scratch, Clumio’s SaaS backup solution allows enterprises to eliminate hardware and software for on-premise backup and avoid the complexity and cost of running third party backup software in the cloud.
“We have a very differentiated SaaS service that’s built on the public cloud that allows you to backup both your on-premises workloads as well as workloads running in the public cloud,” said Kumar. “It is centered around the complexity of backup. Today, data doesn’t only belong to on-premises. In the on-premises side, backup has been pretty complex in terms of the software and hardware the customer has to manage to just backup their on-premises workloads.”
As businesses move to the cloud, they can leverage Clumio to protect workloads like VMware Cloud on AWS and native AWS services, as well as data regardless of where it resides. “From a complexity perspective, things get worse as enterprise customers move into a world of multi-cloud with Google Cloud Platform, Azure, AWS and VMware Cloud -- that was the reason why we started Clumio. We fundamentally believe that backup fits the proven model for SaaS,” Kumar said.
Clumio leverages the scale and elasticity of the public cloud to scale dynamically to meet the changing needs of the enterprise. Security is incorporated at the core of its design to provide a secure backup and recovery service for the enterprise.
