What Clumio helps customers solve

  • Accidental data loss Inadvertent deletions, incorrect data lifecycle policies, and erroneous software deletes
  • Ransomware and cyberthreats Wipeout attacks, malicious scripts, and insider threats
  • Customer SLAs and compliance Uptime, RTO & RPO, retention, ISO, SOC, HIPAA and more
  • Reduce AWS backup costs Uncontrolled data protection cost, high storage spend, and lack of cost visibility

The best of AWS backup tools… still have limitations

  • Poor recoverability
    RTO isn’t all about platform performance, it’s about making human operations simpler. But today’s tools lack simple point-in-time recoveries, and compel customers into bulk restores.
  • High cost
    Non-granular protection (full buckets and snapshots) and mandatory versioning for fast-changing data can quickly balloon costs for AWS customers.
  • Low performance
    Even the best AWS backup tools max out at tens of petabytes, and cannot provide instant recoverability for large datasets.
  • Not safe from threats
    With a complex setup, even simple misconfigurations can expunge entire buckets, and the lack of out-of-enterprise air gap means that data is still not safe from threats.

How Clumio is different

Clumio redefines data protection for the cloud

Radical Simplicity
  • Intuitive protection groups
    Clumio Protection Groups help classify data across buckets, prefixes, and storage classes, and automates discovery and policy and assigning backup policies for new data.

  • Flexible recovery
    With Clumio, you can simply point to a calendar and restore your data at any granularity, and to any account across AWS regions. You can also search to find and restore exactly the object, bucket, prefix, or protection group you need.

  • Proactive support
    Compare Clumio’s AWS Marketplace and G2 ratings with other businesses in its category. You will see that Clumio is unmatched in its customer satisfaction, with raving reviews of Clumio’s predictive support that identifies and resolves over 90% of potential service needs before customers are even aware of a problem. Data Protection should bring peace of mind, and Clumio does exactly that.

Incredible Performance
  • Protect exabytes of data:
    Including S3 buckets of up to 30 billion objects. Clumio is built on decoupled serverless entities that scale dynamically with demand.

  • Get Protected in Minutes:
    Sign up from our website or AWS Marketplace, protect your entire cloud data estate in minutes. Clumio microservices inventory data sources, orchestrate, read, reduce, encrypt, and transfer data in parallel streams. Indexing and verification are auto-scaled, ensuring an industry-leading low RPO of 15 min.

  • Recover Instantly:
    Clumio makes both human and automated operations faster. Global search and calendar views help you quickly identify exactly the data that needs to be recovered, and Clumio’s serverless functions scale out rehydration while running parallel I/O operations across restore blocks, returning you to a fully operational state at top speed.

Architected to Reduce Cost
  • Granular protection:
    Not everything in a bucket needs to be protected. With Clumio’s granular backup capabilities, you can protect and recover only and exactly what you need.

  • Details matter:
    With Clumio, there is no fine print. Pay for exactly what you protect, eliminate costs associated with replication and versioning, and store your backups in cold or frozen while still enjoying simple point-in-time recovery.

  • Insights from Clumio Discover:
    Clumio Discover provides insights into hidden data protection costs, intelligently estimates spend and proposes ways to reduce cost.

  • Why should I use a cloud-native backup solution?

    Cloud-native backup provides numerous benefits over traditional on premises backup, or instance-based backups.
    Clumio’s powerful architecture allows backups to scale seamlessly with your data, while providing the power of file level indexing that helps you find, protect and restore exactly the right data among billions of cloud files and objects, fast.
    Cloud-native backup also ensures that pricing is consumption-based, so you’ll never have to pay for hardware, infrastructure, or bulky cloud clusters.

  • What AWS services does Clumio cover?

    Clumio covers your backup needs for the following AWS resources:

    Storage: Amazon S3, Amazon EBS

    Compute: Amazon EC2

    Databases: Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon RDS, SQL on EC2

  • What is the difference between Backup and Disaster Recovery?

    Disaster recovery is a strategy that entails restoring applications in the event of a significant disruption like a network outage, natural disaster, or large-scale failure. DR processes vary in line with companies’ requirements, but can include options like fully redundant systems for immediate failover, and often include backup plans as an element. Replication can be used as part of a DR strategy for technology failures, but because replicated data is a live or versioned copy of the primary data, it does not allow you to roll back to a usable state in case of a mass encryption event like ransomware, or in the event of deletions, corruptions, or overwrites. These situations need a point in time backup.

    Backup is a crucial element of a disaster recovery strategy that can also help you meet compliance requirements. Whereas failover copies are structured the same way as production data, backup copies are stored more efficiently and must be restored to the production environment to be used.

  • What are the security best practices of backup and recovery?

    There are numerous security features to look for when you partner with a backup service. One important tool is role-based access controls, which use IAM roles to easily assign user permissions to access only the specific types of tools and data they need, rather than everything in the system.

    Among the many ways to improve data security, the use of the bring-your-own-key enhancement to encryption is popular and effective. It utilizes AWS’s KMS (key management system) to allow users to combine their private encryption keys with the backup solution’s keys. This maximizes protection of data that is accessed via the web. Air-gapping and immutability are two additional important backup security features.

    Air-gapping is the practice of keeping backups in a separate security sphere from primary data, so it remains available in the event the primary data is compromised. Immutability saves data in a write-once-read-many, or worm format, ensuring it cannot be changed or deleted.

  • Why is cross-region recovery important?

    An AWS Region is a geographical location where data can be stored. Each region is further broken down into multiple Availability Zones, which help ensure the infrastructure is resilient. There are many instances in which having the flexibility to recover data to a different region is important. For example, when companies backup buckets, files, volumes, and tables, the intention is for them to be restored in case of a data loss or other disaster like a region being down. In that case, they would want to restore the backup to another region.

    Relatedly, backup solutions with cross-account and new-account data recovery capabilities complete the picture, allowing the organization to restore to completely new environments. Clumio’ intuitive gui makes it easy to backup and restore data across environments for S3, EC2/EBS, DynamoDB, RDS, and SQL on EC2.

  • How can Clumio help me save on storage and backup costs?

    There are several ways Clumio can save your backup bill. In addition to per gb/month prices that save you money on S3 and EC2/EBS backups, you’ll save even more by protecting only the data that needs to be protected. Clumio has no minimum file size, so you won’t pay too much to back up small files.

    And of course, saving time saves money. It’s simple to pre-buy credits and apply them to the data source of your choice, so no matter how many times your consumption fluctuates across services, you’re covered. Clumio’s ui console also includes Discover, a free visibility engine that provides a view into your data and analytics on inventory, protection status and more.
