Clumio Introduces Data Protection for S3
Clumio has announced data protection for S3 buckets as an extension to the existing Clumio Protect platform. Do we need to back up S3, and if so, what problem is this new solution offering solving?
It may seem counter-intuitive to put backup in place for large volumes of unstructured data. Historically, S3 and other object stores were a target for largely inactive data that was seen as a toxic waste dump where data goes to die – rather than a treasure trove of future opportunity.
