Backup as a Service

Clumio is a secure, backup as a service for the enterprise that eliminates the complexity of infrastructure management with authentic SaaS. Consolidate the protection of your data centers with no hardware or software to size, configure, manage – or even buy at all. On your journey to the cloud, use the same service to protect workloads like VMware Cloud on AWS and native AWS services.

Clumio Abstracts the Complexity of Traditional Backup Systems

Designing, managing and maintaining backup systems is time consuming and expensive. Explosive data growth and hybrid cloud architectures make backup and recovery more challenging than ever before. Clumio was born in the cloud and built to simplify these challenges for enterprise customers.


The Clumio Architecture

Unleashing the Power of the Public Cloud

Clumio eliminates the need for complex capacity planning by automatically scheduling the expansion and contraction of resources as needed. You can define backup policies and monitor compliance to them in real-time. Clumio’s end to end encryption is always on. The user and key management design ensure full customer control over data access. The architecture handles all of the deduplication and data compression tasks as well as the fingerprint database and cataloging of all protected data.

 


A Simple Solution That Just Works

Customers tell us they prefer simplicity and solutions that need little care and feeding. Clumio delivers a service with a unique mix of features designed to simplify enterprise backup. Easily check backup status and compliance at a glance with Real-Time DashboardsAutomatic Resource Scaling means no more headaches of capacity planning and responding to usage spikes. With One Set of Backup Policies for on-premise and cloud VMs, managing backups is much smoother. End to End Encryption powers comprehensive data protection as soon as backups start.

Real-Time Dashboards

See backup status at a glance

Clumio allows IT teams to centrally manage their backup and recovery needs for VMware workloads, no matter where they run: on-premise or on VMC. Existing backup products require the IT team to deploy separate solutions for managing their on-premise and VMC workloads. Managing information across multiple consoles is time-consuming and error-prone. With all backup management in one place, IT teams can spend less time on backup and focus on more strategic work.

Automatic Resource Scaling

The service automatically expands

Clumio takes advantage of the elasticity of the public cloud. The architecture is designed to be massively parallel and has access to virtually limitless resources. This enables a seamless onboarding experience with no compromise in backup performance. Data movement and bandwidth usage are very efficient with source-side encryption, deduplication, and compression. The architecture also includes separate control and data planes. This ensures control communication and data movement work in parallel, improving performance.

One Set of Backup Policies for All VMs

Automatic backup policy enforcement reduces risk

Clumio provides the ability to define a single set of policies to protect your VMware VMs regardless of whether they run on-premise or in the cloud. You can set up different policies as business needs dictate and manage them all easily. Once policies are defined they are automatically enforced. You don’t have to manually update configuration settings on individual hardware or software. Monitor backup compliance status on a real-time dashboard. With 11 9’s of data durability, you can address data retention requirements.

End to End Encryption

All backups are encrypted in-transit and at rest

Clumio is designed with Always-On Security. Encryption can’t be turned off and it is the first step of backup preparation. This protects data at rest and in-transit. Automatic key rotation minimizes exposure in the unlikely event a customer key is compromised. Clumio supports “Bring Your Own Key” encryption with the AWS key management system. Clumio supports auditing of encryption key usage. Keys can be revoked if any unauthorized activities are detected. Learn about Key Management in the Cloud.

 

Data Sources

Backup for VMWare vSphere

Clumio’s incremental forever backups reduce the impact of backups on production environments. Administrators can perform full VM restores from any point-in-time backup. The service also supports granular file search and restore. There are no limits on restores and there are no additional charges. Always-on encryption protects data at rest and in-flight.

Backup for VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS

IT teams can now define and apply one set of backup policies for their VM workloads. The service takes care of the backups no matter where the workloads run. IT can back up a VM running on-premise and restore it to VMC and vice versa. Other backup solutions require separate sets of backup infrastructure for on-premise and cloud workloads, driving increased costs and complexity. The Clumio approach will help accelerate the adoption of VMC without increasing backup and recovery complexity.

Backup for Native AWS Services

With Clumio, there is no infrastructure to manage and we provide a single place to set and enforce backup policies. Support for native AWS services will extend this to AWS accounts that run EC2 and EBS. Other backup solutions for AWS only store snapshots in the same source account. The customer remains at risk of compromised accounts and rogue scripts. Since Clumio backs up production data in the cloud, compromised accounts can be restored.
