DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS helps fuel record business growth for Datrium

Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Datrium has announced record business growth driven by its extensive product innovation including the launch of Datrium DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) with VMware Cloud on AWS and the rapidly growing Datrium Global Partner Network.

Resulting from the growing demand for Datrium DRaaS, the company recorded an increase of 450% in its disaster recovery (DR) customers in the second half of 2019 over the first half of the year. The company also announced the opening of a new office in ANZ as well as new customer additions and expanded footprints with existing customers which include leading companies such as Siemens, Ultra Petroleum and VPay; and 20 new partners across North America, EMEA, ANZ and APJC who have joined the Global Partner Network in the last six months.

Industry recognition

Datrium was recently recognized across the industry with several awards – including Best Hyper-converged and Composable Infrastructures (Gold) for Datrium Automatrix in the Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com Products of the Year 2019 awards, CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Companies of 2020 and Bay Area News Group Top Workplace for 2019 – for its business and new product innovations.

Leveraging VMware Cloud on AWS

“Over the next several years, cyber threats such as ransomware will only continue to increase and become more sophisticated. Backup-based approaches to DR no longer work given the complexity of IT environments and enterprises need quicker, instant recovery in the face of disasters. Our mission is to free IT from worn-out, legacy solutions and deliver access to cost-effective, reliable, cloud-based disaster recovery with instant RTO. Datrium has rescued customers from ransomware, data center floods and natural disasters and transformed their economics with a cloud-native on-demand model leveraging VMware Cloud on AWS,” said Tim Page, Chief Executive Officer at Datrium.

“Datrium’s expansion in the enterprise market shows the growing demand for better data protection in an on-demand business climate when your data can make or break you. We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished at Datrium in the last year, and the new relationships we’ve built with customers and partners around the world.”

Changes how companies approach DR

Launched in August 2019, Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS fundamentally changes how companies approach DR with its cloud-native design, built-in backup, instant Recovery Time Objective (RTO), continuous compliance and an on-demand pay-as-you-go model. Built on Datrium’s popular workload orchestrator, ControlShift, this SaaS solution provides the world’s first fully automated failover to the VMware Cloud on AWS based on live mount of VM snapshots held in AWS S3. Datrium provides a single point of ordering, billing and support, eliminating the need to manage AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS accounts directly. Datrium DRaaS enables organizations to make the cloud their DR data center at a fraction of the cost of a second data center, delivering 10x or greater cost savings.
