Record Revenue Growth Fueled By Enterprise Customer Adoption

Santa Clara, CA – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Clumio, a leader in data backup and recovery for public cloud, today announced that it has secured $75M in a Series D funding round led by Sutter Hill Ventures, along with participation from existing investors Index Ventures and Altimeter Capital, and new investor NewView Capital. The investment will be used to accelerate the company’s innovation and go-to-market in radically simplifying backup and recovery for public cloud customers. Clumio has now raised a total of $261 million.

“Few markets are as big as backup and recovery,” said Mike Speiser of Sutter Hill Ventures. “While many legacy vendors offer products for on-premise data protection, backup and recovery at public cloud scale is a significant technical challenge that Clumio is uniquely positioned to solve.”

Clumio also announced a 4X growth in annual recurring revenue (ARR) in 2023, fueled by accelerated enterprise customer acquisition—software powerhouse Atlassian, legal and risk management leader LexisNexis, and recently public fast-casual restaurant chain Cava to name a few. Clumio is now well into double-figures in millions of dollars in annual recurring revenue (ARR), with over 100 petabytes (PB) of cloud data protected for hundreds of customers, a net promoter score (NPS) of 86, and a 5-star rating on the AWS Marketplace.

“Customers have reached a point of maturity in the public cloud where backup and recovery of their critical data is now a top priority,” said Poojan Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Clumio. “It is foundational to their operational resilience, ransomware recovery, and regulatory compliance needs. Because traditional backup and recovery vendors are not architected for public cloud applications, Clumio is seeing a deluge of demand across cloud databases, data lakes, and high-performance storage. We will use our Series D funding to accelerate our momentum in these areas, across the major cloud providers.”

“Clumio is doing to enterprise backup and recovery what Snowflake did to enterprise data warehousing,” said Rick Underwood, Chief Revenue Officer at Clumio. “With the explosion of cloud data, customers need a backup solution natively built in the cloud that can leverage and scale with their other cloud services. I witnessed this shift from bolt-on, retrofitted deployments towards hands-off, consumption-based solutions first-hand during my tenure at Snowflake, when the company grew its revenue 30X in five years. I am excited to lead Clumio on a similar revenue trajectory.”

When it comes to public cloud backup and recovery, the majority of enterprises today rely on rudimentary tools like snapshots and replicas. However, these lack necessary optimizations, observability, and security for enterprise-level operations, quickly becoming complex and expensive to manage. Clumio—the only serverless backup solution—overcomes these challenges with an autonomous, default-air gapped, and immutable platform that proactively monitors compliance and reduces cost.

“Clumio helped us automate the resilience of Jira Cloud,” said Alex Grach, Head of Engineering, Core Engineering Services at Atlassian. “Clumio was the only solution that met our needs for high-fidelity backup and restore at scale, both in terms of data volume as well as change-rate. It has also been simple to implement and easy to use.”

In addition to the above highlights, Clumio continued its product innovation with the general availability of S3 Instant Access, a new paradigm for data recovery without having to perform a restore operation. In the incident of a disruption, Amazon S3 customers use this feature to keep their critical applications up and running while a full recovery takes place in parallel. For its streak of innovation and momentum in 2023, Clumio was awarded InfoWorld Technology of the Year in the Cloud Compliance and Governance category.

Independent study reveals Keepit’s multifaceted benefits: Faster ransomware recovery, cost reduction, and increased productivity; Company launches new separate ROI calculator

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Keepit, a global provider of cloud backup and recovery solutions, today announced the results attained by organizations leveraging Keepit SaaS data protection: a three-year 163% Return on Investment (ROI), a $821,000 net present value over three years, and a payback period of less than six months. These findings stem from a January 2024 study conducted by Forrester Consulting, commissioned by Keepit, which quantifies the impact of Keepit’s SaaS data protection.

Based on interviews to better understand the return on investment of Keepit customers, the study found that for a composite organization implementation of Keepit’s solutions significantly alleviated the burden on overextended IT teams by offering multiple resource-saving benefits. It reduced the impact of a ransomware attack by minimizing downtime, saved SaaS licensing expenses, enabled the organization to avoid the costs associated with on-premises backup solutions, and increased the time efficiency of IT administrators through its rapid restore capabilities, streamlining their workflow. These advantages collectively contributed to a more productive and cost-effective IT operation.

Quick and efficient data recovery saves time and money
“Quick and efficient data recovery has a direct correlation with an organization’s financial health,” states Craig Bumpus, Chief Revenue Officer for Keepit. “The TEI study reveals our clients experienced a 90% faster recovery time for vital users, affirming for us the value of Keepit’s solution. This advantage extends beyond IT efficiency to direct financial savings and shields against operational and compliance risks.”

The study highlights significant advantages, with three-year, risk-adjusted present values savings across multiple benefits:

  • Faster and more accurate recovery from a ransomware attack with a savings of $819,100.
  • Reduced SaaS licensing costs by $351,400.
  • On-premises backup cost avoidance of $134,000.
  • SaaS user productivity impact of $21,400.

Impact of ransomware attacks are reduced
The return on investment for Keepit customers who suffer a ransomware attack is substantial – the granularity, precision and speed with which organizations can recover their backed-up data in itself saves IT resources and keeps downtime to an absolute minimum. Keepit believes the ROI is also a result of the ability, in the event of a ransomware attack, for organizations to refuse to pay the ransom because they have access to their data regardless, without suffering massive operational disruptions.

“The word essential is not an exaggeration in this context. If you have no backup of your data, then you are a threatened species,” stated a senior consultant, a Keepit nonprofit organization customer in the study.

“It’s important to have the confidence to have all data available all the time. If something happens, from small instances to big ones, we are able to restore data,” said a senior system manager from an automotive association quoted in the study.

Following the results of this study, Keepit developed and is now introducing a Return On Investment calculator, designed to provide users with tailored insights into the financial benefits of Keepit’s solutions for their specific organizational needs.

Essential Data Intelligence and Fit for AI Framework Organizes, Curates, and Enables Business Critical Insights for Enterprises

Boston, MA – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Nasuni, a leading hybrid cloud storage solution, today announced Nasuni IQ: data intelligence capabilities to help enterprises manage, assess, and prepare their unstructured data environment for artificial intelligence (AI). With Nasuni IQ, businesses can quickly monitor usage patterns, make proactive data management decisions, and better enable the delivery of intelligent insights.

As the volume of unstructured data continues to grow in the enterprise, a comprehensive data management strategy has become a top concern for businesses looking to leverage AI. According to Gartner, large enterprises will triple their unstructured data capacity by 2028. Since unstructured data is where much of the enterprise’s intellectual property is housed, unlocking its potential is critical. For many companies, this data has been forgotten in legacy storage silos.

The Nasuni File Data Platform supports the next generation of data initiatives by consolidating unstructured data within a single global namespace. Additionally, Nasuni can help companies move off their legacy NAS infrastructure quickly and efficiently with its Professional Services offerings. With the addition of Nasuni IQ, platform users gain access to the following key features:

  • Proactive Data Management: Anticipate storage needs, identify potential bottlenecks, and implement data management policies to ensure resources are allocated effectively.
  • Data Curation for AI: Can be used as an additional tool to help curate unstructured data to support advanced analytics and AI initiatives.

“As more businesses turn to AI and advanced analytics for a competitive edge, understanding and managing the data feeding those tools will be the deciding factor in their success,” said Russ Kennedy, Chief Product Officer, Nasuni. “Nasuni’s Data Platform consolidates silos of data in a cloud object store and then provides enterprises with the visibility and insight to leverage their data for the next generation of intelligence tools.”

Nasuni IQ will be delivered as part of the core Nasuni File Data Platform, and supports Nasuni’s overall Fit for AI framework designed to help customers bring their data strategy in line with being ready for AI use-cases. Nasuni IQ enables customers to quickly take advantage of a number of important capabilities, including:

  • Fit for AI Assessment: Evaluate an organization’s data landscape, understand consumption patterns, and begin ensuring the data is AI-ready.
  • File Usage Analytics: Track usage and collaboration patterns across users, departments, file types, volumes, and more. Gain visibility to optimize storage, plan capacity, and facilitate capacity-based chargeback.
  • Health Monitoring: Monitor system component metrics to proactively identify resource contention and capacity limits so administrators can take preventative measures.
  • Forensic Capabilities: Perform historical analysis of file, user, or application activity when troubleshooting issues or investigating information security events.
  • Automated Reporting: Leverage prebuilt reports and dashboards that deliver actionable intelligence to technical and business users and support chargeback reporting.

“The rapid emergence of AI technology is driving organizations to evaluate how they can use unstructured data to their advantage,” said Scott Sinclair, Practice Director of Cloud, Infrastructure, and DevOps at ESG. “Nasuni IQ is a powerful new solution that aids data discovery and enables organizations to do the critical curation that should be done before exposing business data to AI services and language models. The Nasuni File Data Platform allows organizations to consolidate previously disparate data silos into a single namespace which radically simplifies management, and Nasuni IQ will further optimize that storage resource for secure, effective data preparation for AI-driven insights.”

“Nasuni IQ has become a valuable tool for our file data oversight,” said Rob Ruggiero, Global Infrastructure Architect at SGSCO. “With its intuitive features, we effortlessly track the most active users, monitor dynamic directories, and gain valuable insights into file interactions. The ability to identify hotspots and trace file movements has enhanced our monitoring capabilities, enabling us to visualize our data collaboration patterns. Nasuni IQ stands out as a reliable ally for those seeking a practical boost in file share data monitoring efficiency.”

As the issue of security remains a top concern for all businesses, the ninth-annual Security 100 serves as a guide for solution providers, spotlighting the leading security vendors to collaborate with as they deliver inventive solutions to their customers.

Narayani Development Bank Limited, a financial institution from Nepal, improves RTO and saves time on backup administration with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – February 20, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Narayani Development Bank Limited has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Narayani Development Bank Limited is a financial institution based in Nepal, providing services to individual and business entities.

As a new financial institution, the bank started with a reasonably limited IT infrastructure. As the infrastructure grew, the need for a reliable VM backup solution to be deployed arose. As of now, the bank has more than 20 VMs running 24/7. These VMs store everything from CBS databases to customer information and to regular files that employees rely on for their daily tasks.

All critical data helps the bank maintain a strong foundation for the organization’s success. Without this data and systems, the bank cannot perform any transactions, and all of the bank’s services may be impacted in case of a disruption.

Previously, the bank relied on manual backups as their environment was small. With the recent expansion, manual backups were no longer a feasible option. Thus, the IT team started looking for a reliable VM backup solution for the bank’s needs. As the data grew exponentially, the need for a VM backup software became apparent. The solution had to offer automation and provide various recovery options in case of incidents. Moreover, the solution had to be cost-efficient and reliable at the same time.

Since all the backups were previously run manually, the IT team spent a considerable amount of time managing those backups. The whole process started to affect the IT team’s work and critical workflows. NAKIVO Backup & Replication was the perfect choice for the bank, as the solution checked all the requirements at a reasonable price. Once the product was finally installed, the IT team noticed considerable changes in their daily working time as the backup administration time decreased dramatically.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication was installed on an already available QNAP NAS server. This integration demonstrated substantial improvements in both backup and recovery performance. By easily combining software and hardware, the IT team now spends less time on managing the backup schedule and more time on their core responsibilities. The IT team can easily schedule a task and not worry about the data protection jobs being completed. The web interface is also hassle-free and easy to navigate.

The ease of use is the best part of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. There are no complicated steps when scheduling a backup. The NAKIVO Backup & Replication on NAS is as easy as a plug-and-play appliance. The IT Team configures the schedule once and can sit back as the backups work in the background. Incremental backups are automated to run on a daily basis, and full backups run on a weekly basis. Generally, incremental backups take around two hours and about 4 hours for a full backup.

There have been many times when the bank needed to recover certain VMs. With instant VM recovery, the IT team was able to recover entire VMs in just a few minutes. Instant VM recovery has improved the bank’s RTOs, which has led to saving both time and money.

Lastly, the IT team has found NAKIVO’s technical support to be highly professional. Technical support has always provided instant feedback and solved various issues.

As the bank relied on using manual backups in the past, the significant achievement of using NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the time saved on managing backups. The IT team no longer needs to spend a considerable amount of time on administration since the software is fully automated and sends alerts and notifications of successful backup and recovery jobs. With instant VM recovery, the bank improved RTOs significantly for critical VMs. Furthermore, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has helped the bank focus on core business tasks. Overall, the bank has saved both time and money with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which involve risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are frequently identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or other similar terms or expressions that relate to our future performance, expectations, strategy, plans or intentions, and include statements in the section titled “Financial Outlook” and statements regarding the use and impact of our IPO proceeds.

Our actual results could differ materially from those stated in or implied by the forward-looking statements in this press release due to a number of factors, including but not limited to: market competition, including competitors that may have greater size, offerings and resources; effectively managing growth; disruption in our service or loss of availability of customers’ data; cyberattacks; ability to attract and retain customers, including increasingly larger customers and the continued growth of data stored by our customers; continued growth consistent with historical levels; ability to offer new features and other offerings on a timely basis and the impact of product pricing changes; material defects or errors in our software; supply chain disruption; ability to maintain existing relationships with partners and to enter into new partnerships; ability to remediate and prevent material weaknesses in our internal controls over financial reporting; retention of key employees; the impact of a pandemic, war or hostilities, including the Israel-Hamas conflict, and other significant world or regional events on our business and the business of our customers, vendors, supply chain and partners; litigation and other disputes; and general market, political, economic, and business conditions. Further information on these and additional risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those included in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in this release are included under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, and other filings and reports we make with the SEC from time to time.

The forward-looking statements made in this release reflect our views as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements in this press release, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use non-GAAP adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA margin. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items and are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We present these non-GAAP measures because management believes they are a useful measure of the company’s performance and provide an additional basis for assessing our operating results. Please see the appendix attached to this press release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA margin to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, expenses and other factors in the future. For example, stock-based compensation expense-related charges are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of our common stock, and our future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict with reasonable accuracy and subject to constant change.

Adjusted Gross Profit (and Margin)

We believe adjusted gross profit (and margin), when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides a meaningful assessment of our performance and is useful to us for evaluating our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

We define adjusted gross margin as gross profit, exclusive of stock-based compensation expense, depreciation expense of our property and equipment, and amortization expense of capitalized internal-use software included within cost of revenue, as a percentage of adjusted gross profit to revenue. We exclude stock-based compensation, which is a non-cash item, because we do not consider it indicative of our core operating performance. We exclude depreciation expense of our property and equipment and amortization expense of capitalized internal-use software, because these may not reflect current or future cash spending levels to support our business. We believe adjusted gross margin provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, as this metric eliminates the effects of depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest expense, investment income, income tax provision, workforce reduction and related severance charges, SAFE holder settlement and other non-recurring charges. We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that adjusted EBITDA, when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook. We consider adjusted EBITDA to be an important measure because it helps illustrate underlying trends in our business and our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation and other items we deem non-recurring. We believe that non-GAAP net income (loss), when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook.

Key Business Metrics:

Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR)

We define annual recurring revenue (ARR) as the annualized value of all Backblaze B2 and Computer Backup arrangements as of the end of a period. Given the renewable nature of our business, we view ARR as an important indicator of our financial performance and operating results, and we believe it is a useful metric for internal planning and analysis. ARR is calculated based on multiplying the monthly revenue from all Backblaze B2 and Computer Backup arrangements, which represent greater than 98% of our revenue for the periods presented (and excludes Physical Media revenue), for the last month of a period by 12. Our annual recurring revenue for Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage is calculated in the same manner as our overall annual recurring revenue based on the revenue from our Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage solutions, respectively.

Net Revenue Retention Rate (NRR)

Our overall net revenue retention rate (NRR) is a trailing four-quarter average of the recurring revenue from a cohort of customers in a quarter as compared to the same quarter in the prior year. We calculate our overall net revenue retention rate for a quarter by dividing (i) recurring revenue in the current quarter from any accounts that were active at the end of the same quarter of the prior year by (ii) recurring revenue in the current corresponding quarter from those same accounts. Our overall net revenue retention rate includes any expansion of revenue from existing customers and is net of revenue contraction and customer attrition, and excludes revenue from new customers in the current period. Our net revenue retention rate for Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage is calculated in the same manner as our overall net revenue retention rate based on the revenue from our Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage solutions, respectively.

Gross Customer Retention Rate

We use gross customer retention rate to measure our ability to retain our customers. Our gross customer retention rate reflects only customer losses and does not reflect the expansion or contraction of revenue we earn from our existing customers. We believe our high gross customer retention rates demonstrate that we serve a vital service to our customers, as the vast majority of our customers tend to continue to use our platform from one period to the next. To calculate our gross customer retention rate, we take the trailing four-quarter average of the percentage of cohort of customers who were active at the end of the quarter in the prior year that are still active at the end of the current quarter. We calculate our gross customer retention rate for a quarter by dividing (i) the number of accounts that generated revenue in the last month of the current quarter that also generated recurring revenue during the last month of the corresponding quarter in the prior year, by (ii) the number of accounts that generated recurring revenue during the last month of the corresponding quarter in the prior year.

Number of Customers

We define a customer at the end of any period as a distinct account, as identified by a unique account identifier, that has paid for our cloud services, which makes up substantially all of our user base. In Q4 2023, we refined our customer definition to include end-user customers that purchase through a reseller. This resulted in no impact to previously reported metrics other than a 1% decrease to the 120% NRR metric reported for Q3 2023.

Annual Average Revenue Per User

We define annual average revenue per user (Annual ARPU) as the annualized value for the average revenue per customer. Annual ARPU is calculated by dividing our revenue for the last month of a period by the total number of customers as of the last day of the same period, and then multiplying the resulting quotient by 12. Our annual average revenue per user for Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage is calculated in the same manner based on the revenue and number of customers from our Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage solutions, respectively.

After a year of pull-back, over half of U.S. IT decision-makers are told by C-Suite to increase cloud spending – as AI innovation drives cloud investment in 2024

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 15, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — 53% of U.S. IT decision-makers say their C-Suite has given them the directive to increase cloud spending in 2024, suggesting the cloud industry is in the midst of a rebound following opposite orders in the lead-up to 2023 when only 18% were increasing spending, and most (40%) were directed to decrease cloud spending.

These are some of the top findings from the 2024 Cloud Outlook published today by Wanclouds, a leading multi-cloud SaaS and managed service provider. The report, which is a follow-up to the widely cited and globally recognized Wanclouds’ 2022 Cloud Cost and Optimization Outlook, found that organizations are upping their cloud investments despite ongoing economic uncertainty. However, the 500 IT decision-makers surveyed to inform the outlook indicated they are analyzing cloud costs more closely this year as the sticker shock of unexpected charges on businesses worsens. 67% of IT decision-makers admit that their business has been hit by unexpected cloud costs in the last six to 12 months, compared to 53% who said the same at the end of 2022.

Being hit with these unexpected costs has prompted the vast majority to assess their cloud spending on a more regular basis. In fact, nearly half (47%) of respondents say their organization carried out their last cloud spend assessment within a few weeks or less. When surveyed at the end of 2022, the vast majority had not done so for up to six months to a year.

Cloud spending has fluctuated at an unprecedented rate in the last few years, starting with the pandemic as organizations radically scaled their digital transformations, then tapering off in 2022 and 2023 due to supply chain disruptions and crippling economic pressures. While this year’s rebound reflects the cloud’s indispensability for many businesses, Wanclouds’ report uncovered another catalyst for its growth: Artificial Intelligence. 41% of U.S. IT decision-makers say their biggest reason for cloud migrations in 2024 is to streamline software development and improve innovation with new technology (AI, etc.).

This hints at the scale of today’s AI boom, with more companies building generative AI models that are trained and run in the cloud. AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud are currently working to optimize their platforms for AI. However, running AI applications on these platforms requires heavy use, which is another driver of high and often unexpected cloud costs.

“There’s little doubt that AI is now a major driver of both cloud investment and overall cloud strategy for enterprises,” said Faiz Khan, CEO of Wanclouds. “As a result, hybrid and multi-cloud environments are now becoming the status quo. Unfortunately, companies are still finding it challenging to track costs, backup applications, and migrate AI and complex workloads across these hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that IT leaders are looking for solutions that can automate some of these processes and give themselves a holistic view across these environments.”

Wanclouds’ 2024 Cloud Outlook also uncovered significant shifts in how organizations are deploying cloud applications this year. Additional highlights include:

  • Hybrid & multi-cloud environments prevail: 84% of organizations utilizing the cloud are now deploying within hybrid or multi-cloud frameworks, signaling an embrace of diverse cloud infrastructure to meet evolving needs. Just 9% are now deploying on a single private cloud, and 7% on a single public cloud.

Russell Sage College in New York, USA, saves $15,000 in backup costs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – February 13, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Russell Sage College has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Russell Sage College is a co-ed college with two campuses located in Albany and Troy, New York, USA. The college offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees along with several certificate programs. Margaret Slocum Sage founded the college in 1916 and named the college after her husband Russell Sage.

At Russell Sage College, there are 2 sites – one located in Albany and the other located in Troy – with 12 physical hosts and approximately 263 virtual machines. The VMs store student and staff personal data, historical data, and images. When it comes to applications, some of the VMs act as domain controllers and run monitoring software, imaging and bootstrapping applications, the online learning platform, among other uses.

As an educational institution, the college deals with a huge amount of student data that needs to be backed up and recovered in a timely manner, especially the online learning platform and information management systems on the department’s servers, which handle critical student and staffing information. In order to achieve an uninterrupted teaching experience for some students 2,500 undergraduate and graduate students, the college always looks for new ways to safeguard critical data with reliable products.

Previously, the college protected critical data with another VM backup product. As that product became too expensive to maintain for the college, and adding extra disaster recovery functionalities was completely out of the IT team’s budget, the school was on the lookout for a new VM backup solution.

Currently, Russell Sage College relies on NAKIVO Backup & Replication to ensure that students, staff, and teachers have uninterrupted access to all their data and systems. The college selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication due to the product’s flexible pricing, ease of installation and setup, and disaster recovery functionalities.

“The installation and setup were flawless compared to the other solutions. We were up and running in about ten minutes or less. The web interface is easy to navigate and user-friendly,” says Zaheer Ahmad, Network Administrator at Russell Sage College. “We installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a VM, but the product offers a wide variety of installation options that we can use in the future.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows organizations to use backup repositories that support immutability to prevent backup data encryption or corruption. Immutability eliminates the risk of accidental or intentional deletions. “The ability to easily deploy Transporters and add backup storage is amazing. One of our favorite features is the ability to make the backups immutable, without extra steps. An immutable storage option was not available with the previous solution unless we paid extra,” says Zaheer.

In terms of disaster recovery, NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides Site Recovery functionality for maintaining operations at a secondary site. This functionality ensures comprehensive disaster recovery planning and swift failover/failback without data loss. “Since we have two separate sites, disaster recovery planning for emergency purposes is the number one priority. We can recover VMs in minutes, easily create VM replicas, and perform disaster recovery testing,” says Zaheer.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication protects critical data at Russell Sage College while helping preserve the work of both faculty and students. As NAKIVO Backup & Replication protects against data loss, the college can facilitate learning and research services as well. With immutable backups, the college is protected against cyberattacks and ransomware. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication saved us $15,000 when we switched from the previous solution. NAKIVO’s technical support has also been phenomenal. They provide quick and helpful responses and solutions to all of our issues and they follow up often, so you never miss a response. The IT team also saved valuable time due to the product’s user-friendly interface and agentless technology,” says Zaheer.

Alcion for Partners program empowers MSPs to modernize their Microsoft 365 backup offerings by increasing customer value with AI and security features, reducing operational overhead, and simplifying multi-tenant billing and licensing

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – February 13, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Alcion, the leading provider of AI-driven Backup-as-a-Service for Microsoft 365, announces the launch of Alcion for Partners – a Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program, designed to empower MSPs with improved account visibility and problem solving capabilities. The new program aims to accelerate and modernize MSPs’ Microsoft 365 backup business while reducing management and procurement toil. By providing a security-oriented backup offering with simplified licensing, consolidated billing, and a new partner portal, MSPs and partners can monitor and manage multiple accounts from a single pane of glass.

“Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) research shows that ransomware attackers are turning their sights to cloud and SaaS services,” said Christophe Bertrand, practice director for data protection, data management, and analytics at ESG. “It has become critical for IT teams to have protection and recovery in place for their business-critical dependencies such as Microsoft 365. The robust AI-driven security and usability features found in Alcion’s data protection platform for Microsoft 365 will be critical for not just individual businesses but also for MSPs, as they look for help in tackling these problems, at scale, in large multi-tenant environments.”

Alcion’s new offering comes on the heels of increased demand for its AI-driven, security first solution, as more migrations from on-prem to Microsoft 365 in the cloud drive MSPs and end customers to harden cyber resilience and upgrade from existing data protection solutions. Since Alcion’s Series A funding round was announced last September, the startup has grown over 10x with new customers in 15 countries across six continents.

“By offering a comprehensive solution that not only secures client data against emerging threats but also simplifies administrative tasks, we are freeing up MSPs to focus on expanding their client base and services,” said Niraj Tolia, CEO and co-founder of Alcion.

Some of the core features and benefits of the program for partners include:

– AI-Driven Security and Backup: Alcion’s platform is powered by AI-driven technology, which allows MSPs to offer a differentiated service offering, access a fully integrated partner portal, and deliver a cutting-edge product to their clients.
– Zero Commitment: Given Alcion’s strong belief in the value provided by their platform, Alcion is offering all partners the ability to start using Alcion without long-term or upfront commitment, allowing MSPs to engage in the program with minimal risk.
– Simplified Monthly Consolidated Billing: Alcion offers MSP partners usage-based consolidated billing with simplified, pay-as-you-go monthly licensing, and instant license procurement. This lowers license management overhead, provides a holistic view of cross-client usage, and reduces financial risk.
– Multi-Tenant Management: The Alcion Partner Portal offers MSPs a unified way to monitor all their clients through a single, intuitive interface. Additionally, MSPs can use the portal to administer each customer account through delegated access without the need to manage independent credentials.
– Dedicated Partner Support: Alcion provides comprehensive pre- and post-sales support, ensuring MSP partners can deploy Alcion with confidence knowing a responsive and partner-focused support team is ready to jump in, if required.
– Self-Service and Ease-of-Use: With Alcion’s instant self-provisioning, tenant onboarding completion within minutes, AI-driven automation, and a highly reliable data protection engine, MSPs can reduce the time and effort required to set up and manage backups for multiple clients, all without the need for any training.

“Alcion has been a game-changer for us,” said Sheldon Mitchell, owner of TechTame, an Australian MSP. “Its user-friendly interface and efficient setup have streamlined our operations, allowing us to focus on delivering top-tier, personalized IT services to our clients. Alcion has also significantly enhanced our data security and backup management, reinforcing our commitment to reliability and trust.”

Core strengths of Storj’s are managing the very large files these sectors rely on and delivering S3-compatible, enterprise grade, cloud object storage, often 2-3x faster at 1/10 the cost and 1/10 the carbon footprint of AWS.

Storj achieved 226% y/y revenue growth in 2023 proliferating a smarter approach than first-gen hyperscalers burdened by resource-heavy data-centers. It easily handles TB files, while AWS Cloudfront is limited to 30GB, for example. Storj’s infrastructure, providing infinite scalability and environmental sustainability, is a timely combination.

Storj developed partnerships with 30 tech alliance partners and 15 resellers in 2023 including Adobe® Premiere® Pro for media professionals, Acronis for secure backups, MASV for high-performance video teams, Livepeer for live and on-demand video and GB Labs for fast high-performance media sharing. Storj also became SmartStore certified with Splunk.

The company was the first distributed cloud storage provider featured in Forrester’s Object Storage Landscape report in Q2 2023, affirming Storj’s approach “will disrupt centralized object storage providers as computing shifts to the edge.” It also won a 2023 NAB Show Product of the Year Award in the Cloud Computing and Storage category.

Sustainability & Savings
Storj published a 2023 whitepaper revealing that distributed cloud storage reduces carbon emissions by up to 83%. Because the average rate of server utilization is only 12-18% of capacity, Storj uses existing capacity for its architecture, eliminating the need to build, cool and maintain new drives and data centers. Along with sustainability, this affords Storj a pricing advantage and avoids supply chain challenges, even for multi-petabyte storage.

Enterprises adopt green technologies if they’re the best business decision, and Storj offers a lower carbon approach that’s more efficient, performant, secure and cost-effective. By 2040, energy required to store digital data could be responsible for 14% of the world’s emissions – about the same as all carbon the US emits now. In response, in 2023 Storj co-founded the Digital Sustainability Alliance (DSA) with AdSignal, Valdi and Earthshot to advance industry-leading solutions that deliver major environmental sustainability impact.

Ben Golub, CEO of Storj addressed members of the UK House of Commons at the Parliamentary Digital Economy Summit in November 2023, regarding sustainable cloud storage and the DSA participated at the 2024 COP28 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Dubai, speaking about digital sustainability and AI.

Security & Compliance
Instead of storing data on data centers that are vulnerable to outages and attacks, Storj encrypts and splits data across its zero-trust network to protect against outages, ransomware, and compromise, eliminating single points of failure while delivering speed, reliability, security, and global accessibility. Storj has presented at all of the Institute for Security & Technology’s Ransomware Task Force conferences.

The 2023 launch of Storj Select added facilities with SOC2 certifications to meet needs of large enterprises in industries like healthcare and finance with rigorous security and compliance demands. With petabytes of healthcare data, healthcare data security leader CloudWave, is leveraging Storj Select. “We work with 300+ hospitals across six countries to protect patient data from cyberattacks and ensure performance and reliability,” said Matt Donahue, CloudWave CTO. “Storj Select’s compliance features, speed and security fit well with our cloud strategy.”

Transparency & Outlook
Storj is positioned with strong financials, solid governance, an experienced team and $75M+ in assets, positioning for a landmark year in 2024. Storj makes live statistics on the state of its network available, publishes annual data on their diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and environmental sustainability initiatives, is built on open source code, maintains an open roadmap and shares live network statistics.

CEO, Ben Golub shared, “The market is evolving from old-guard titans to a new generation of business and technology leaders that value innovation and transparency to position themselves for exciting growth in 2024 and beyond.”

About Storj
Storj is revolutionizing cloud object storage. We put unused storage to work as a massive distributed network rather than building data centers. Enterprises benefit from S3-compatible edge storage with superior global performance, security, and durability. Make the world your data center and get 80% lower costs and carbon emissions.
