Unicorn in the Making: Datrium – Sramana Mitra Interview

Here is an excerpt, and you can read the full interview: Unicorn in the Making: Datrium CTO Sazzala Reddy.

Sramana Mitra: What is Datrium?

Sazzala Reddy: We provide cloud data services for large enterprises.

Sramana Mitra: Elaborate.

Sazzala Reddy: We focus on a particular use case. We build a broad data mobility platform where you can easily move from one cloud to another and provide data services to companies. I’ll give a concrete example. Large enterprises have data centers which are physical data centers living on their sites.

The challenge is that when you have disasters, the business is down when the data center is down. People replicate the data and keep another data center. The challenge with that is, it’s very expensive. The process is very complex. All the different pieces of equipment have to work together. It’s not a very easy task.

…We provide you a path where you can shut down the second data center and leverage the cloud as your second data center like an on-demand data center. We turned the whole process of disaster recovery into a simple SaaS product.

The advantage is that it’s like paying for insurance after you have a disaster. You don’t have to buy a lot of servers until you actually have a disaster. You can come back on premise when the disaster has been resolved.
