How to Reduce the Risk and Avoid the Consequences of Losing Your Data

Recently, M.R. Rangaswami interviewed Tim Page, our CEO, about “how enterprises can protect and prepare their data and operations for disaster recovery – especially when it comes to ransomware.” M.R. is a Co-Founder of Sand Hill Group, best known for its work in the $600-billion software and services market.

Tim talked to M.R. about how Datrium is transforming DR. Companies can choose Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS, which delivers failproof on-demand DR with instant RTO for all of their VMware workloads. There are many benefits to choosing this powerful, unified SaaS solution from Datrium:


  • Pay only when disaster strikes so it’s 10x more cost-efficient
  • Have confidence that you DR plans will work when needed because compliance and health checks occur automatically every 30 minutes
  • Simplify management of your cloud, on-prem, and DR sites with familiar vCenter tools


Here’s an excerpt, and you can read the full article.

M.R. Rangaswami: What inspired Datrium to enter the market with its DRaaS offering?


Tim Page: …Traditional DR is expensive, complex, and unreliable. It often means buying five different products to manage data twice – once for the primary site and once for the DR site. Organizations need primary storage, backup, DR, and encryption products. These products are often purchased from different vendors, and they aren’t designed to work well together, which creates expensive, fragile, and unreliable systems. IT needs to set up runbooks and create extensive documentation, but the moment something changes in the data center, the runbooks and documentation are out of date, which means the DR plans are now untested, and therefore, completely unreliable.
