Recovering a corrupted data can be a big pain. Datos IO is a startup that helps save your data from disastrous events such as corrupted files and the likes. Datos IO has developed disaster recovery software that lets organizations recover their to previous versions of the NoSQL database distributed by Cassandra. The idea is to provide similar tooling for other modern scale-out databases, such as MongoDB. The tools, including open-source application listener that monitor for changes, and it will become available in the first quarter of 2016.
On September 15, 2015, Datos IO received $2.75 million in oversubscribed Seed funding and $12.5 million in oversubscribed Series A funding, for a total of $15.25 million, from leading investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners and True Ventures along with a number of angel investors which includes CrunchFund. John Vrionis, partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Puneet Agarwal, partner at True Ventures, will be joining Tarun and Prasenjit on the board of directors. The funding will be used to build the sales and engineering teams needed to bring the product to market, onboard the first revenue-generating customers and continue product innovation.
The enterprise data center is being transformed to keep pace with today’s data-centric world, enabling it to support the social, mobile and cloud environment in which today’s consumers live. Large-volume, high-ingestion, real-time data from various sources is becoming mainstream for the new web-scale, distributed applications that enterprises are employing to gain deeper business insights. Datos IO was founded to enable enterprises to adopt next-generation applications and scale-out databases that they need to innovate and compete in today’s economy.
These next-generation applications are being deployed on scale-out non-relational databases such as Cassandra, MongoDB, HBase, Google BigTable, and Amazon DynamoDB. These scale-out databases enable rapid development of the next-generation applications, and they need enterprise-scale recovery capabilities: ones that allow corrupted data to be removed, replayed, and propagated with minimal downtime to customer-facing applications. Because enterprises cannot afford the increased risk of data loss, the full scale adoption of next-generation databases for enterprise and core applications depends on enterprise-grade recovery.
Tarun Thakur, CEO and co-founder of Datos IO said “Datos IO is the first to address a huge enterprise need and a huge market opportunity: a recovery solution that’s built for today’s distributed applications and scale-out databases. Traditional recovery approaches work great for relational databases, but using them for next-generation databases doesn’t work; it’s like being held back by an old, rusty anchor. With our industry-first distributed versioning platform, Datos IO is setting enterprises free of that anchor so they can innovate and compete effectively in today’s mobile, social, cloud-native world.”
Datos IO has developed the industry’s first distributed versioning platform built from the ground up for the world of next-generation applications and scale-out databases, ensuring consistent versions across all scale-out databases and providing enterprises with a single state of truth for their distributed applications.
