Clumio adds free operational snapshots, RDS support to AWS data protection

Today, enterprise backup-as-a-service provider Clumio is expanding its native AWS protection, while also introducing a free offering designed to get the attention of the market. Clumio will offer the shortest term backup — operational snapshot-based recovery for free, to illustrate that they offer this common backup form as part of a comprehensive data protection strategy. They are also now providing support for Amazon RDS, the AWS Relational Database Service.
