Moving to the cloud has many benefits, but data protection is not one of them. Native data protection tools for the cloud are not easy to manage, cost-effective, or adequate for compliance. Complexity consumes time and increases risks of data loss from ransomware. Native cloud backup tools like snapshot managers and on-prem tools are complex. Providing consistent protection across tens to thousands of AWS accounts is challenging. To simplify, Clumio offers secure backup as a service to protect EC2 and EBS- with uniform policies. Enterprises gain Clumio’s simplicity and flexibility, resulting in cost savings and fast restores- while meeting compliance.
Managing different tools for backup can wreak havoc on already complicated compliance challenges. AWS offers primitive snapshot management as a native backup tool, for operational recovery, but it is not a full solution. Another risk is that snapshots are stored along with data within individual accounts. Every snapshot stored to meet data retention increases cloud costs. Clumio provides efficient data storage only charging for provisioned terabytes, without the surprise egress charges typical of cloud providers. Enterprises can now meet compliance requirements for data retention with predictable costs.
When data is ransomed or compromised, rapid recoveries are critical. Clumio backs up EC2 instances and all connected EBS volumes, ensuring consistent backups are always available across data. Whether restoring an EC2 instance, EBS volume, single file, or multiple directories, a global catalog is searchable and browseable for just the data requiring a restore. With Clumio, data compromised in a source account can be redirected to a completely different account. All with just a few clicks and within a few minutes – helping organizations meet or exceed RTOs.
Clumio has designed a highly secure solution in the public cloud. The cloud-native design ensures data is securely backed up in the cloud. Tenant data is segmented with unique keys and always encrypted. During backups, data is written to an S3 object store in an immutable format, creating an air-gapped security layer. This provides additional peace of mind for a sound recovery in the case of a data breach.
Using different tools to backup tens to thousands of AWS accounts is resource-intensive and expensive, requiring separate backup infrastructure for each. Clumio simplifies management with a uniform set of backup policies for EBS volumes and EC2 instances- with the ability to monitor compliance status for backup policies. This eliminates the need for manual scripting. Clumio enables organizations to easily apply the same policies and processes for on-prem data protection, to new VMs running on EC2. Clumio takes on backup, freeing up IT talent to focus on delivering business value while giving the enterprise cost-effective, data protection.
