Rubrik to acquire Datos IO to orchestrate application data across data center and public clouds



Rubrik announced on Tuesday that it has agreed to acquire Datos IO, vendor of backup and recovery for NoSQL databases and big data file systems. The acquisition of Datos IO will extend Rubrik’s reach into mission-critical cloud applications and databases increasingly adopted by application and DevOps teams at Fortune 500 companies.

Rubrik and Datos IO share a common vision for building a control plane that can automate, orchestrate, and secure data anywhere. By bringing together the two companies’ complementary product portfolios, Rubrik accelerates its mission to become the premier cloud platform for enterprises to orchestrate application data across datacenter and public cloud.

Rubrik delivers instant application availability with data protection, search, analytics, archival and copy data management. Hybrid Cloud enterprises benefit from Rubrik’s market-leading Cloud Data Management platform with simplicity, instant data access, app-mobility, policy-driven automation, Ransomware protection, and analytics at scale.

Datos IO is the application-centric data management company for the multi-cloud world. Datos IO delivers a radically novel approach to data management, helping organizations embrace the cloud with confidence by delivering solutions that protect, mobilize, and monetize their data — at scale. Unlike traditional data protection solutions that protect applications either at a VM-level or at a storage LUN-level, Datos IO has reinvented data management by eliminating any dependencies on infrastructure constructs — thus, enabling a true application-centric data management approach for cloud-native applications and databases.

Datos IO’s platform RecoverX pioneers a radically new approach to comprehensive data management for modern cloud applications built on modern NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, Amazon DynamoDB) and big data file systems (Cloudera, Hortonworks). Datos IO has filed 22 patents with foundational innovations in application-aware data management for enterprise use cases of backup and recovery, test/dev refresh, in-place analytics, and cloud mobility.

Enterprises have chosen Datos IO to protect and manage their cloud applications enabling digital transformation, including three of the top Fortune 15 companies and the world’s largest home improvement retailer. Enterprises use these cloud databases and file systems to power bleeding edge mission critical applications in several domains: Internet of Things, artificial intelligence/machine learning, real-time analytics, eCommerce, security and mobile analytics.

Datos IO will continue to be led by Tarun Thakur as a new business unit called Rubrik Datos IO reporting to CEO Bipul Sinha.

“As enterprises adopt NoSQL cloud databases to undertake digital transformation and AI initiatives, the need to manage and recover applications and data is becoming top of mind. We are excited to have Datos IO join the Rubrik family to accelerate innovation in how enterprises manage and recover this modern application stack,” said Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO, Rubrik.

“We founded Datos IO with a vision of building next-generation data management platform for cloud-native data sources to ensure elasticity, orchestration, and data mobility,” said Tarun Thakur, co-founder and CEO, Datos IO. “Datos IO delivers critical backup and recovery capabilities for cloud-native applications and databases. Rubrik and Datos IO share a common vision of cloud data management and are committed to helping customers on their digital transformation journey.”
