Clumio brings backup-as-a-service to Amazon S3
With cloud spending going through the roof, the global “backup-as-a-service” market is booming. Pegged at $8.4 billion last year, the data backup and recovery segment is projected to nearly double within six years as businesses continue to embrace cloud computing and all things SaaS.
Indeed, the growing scourge of ransomware, along with high-profile events such as the OVH datacenter fire, highlight the importance of having a robust disaster recovery plan in place. And data backup and recovery play a crucial role here.
Against this backdrop, Clumio today announced what it’s touting as the industry’s first comprehensive backup-as-a-service solution specifically for Amazon S3, an object (file or associated metadata) storage service that lets Amazon’s AWS cloud customers store data from anywhere.
