Clumio brings its backup-as-a-service technology to Amazon S3 storage
Well-funded data protection startup Clumio Inc. today debuted a new solution, Clumio Protect for Amazon S3, that it says can help companies mitigate ransomware attacks targeting records they keep in Amazon Web Services Inc.’s S3 storage service.
S3 is one of the most popular services in the entire public cloud ecosystem. Some companies use S3 to host information generated by their AWS-powered applications. Others rely on the object storage service to power data lakes that analyze business information to find useful insights. S3 is also a popular choice for backup use cases: Many organizations use it to keep contingency copies of important records, such as files from on-premises databases.
