Clumio debuts free snapshots with Amazon RDS data protection service

“When it comes to the snapshot orchestration that everyone else charges for, that functionality is available in our free tier that is available for every customer,” said Clumio CEO Poojan Kumar.

“Clumio delivers an authentic data protection service, that protects data outside of customer accounts for ransomware protection and lowers costs for long-term compliance. There is no other company, product, or service that can deliver these values in the public cloud today.”

Clumio RDS protection has three attributes:

  • Operational point-in-time recovery and free snapshot orchestration for EBS and RDS workloads
  • RDS data recovery with restores, granular record and column retrieval, and air-gapped snapshots
  • Compliance with long-term retention, record-level retrieval and deletion, export for legal hold/eDiscovery and data store.

“Enterprise customers tell us there isn’t much value in snapshot orchestration so we are instead focused on what is valuable to them – lower TCO for long-term retention and compliance for their data in the cloud,” said Kumar.
