It turns out to be a successful tactic to go for large markets with innovative solutions. In other words, it’s impossible unless the market has a sudden break. Since established players can’t adjust to the new environment quickly enough, there’s room for upstarts to profit which is when Clumio entered the market. Before Clumio, the market had only limited AWS backup solutions.

In other words, Clumio is useful for both businesses and their operations. They’ve taken the guesswork out of designing, upgrading, and maintaining your virtual machine backup system by giving simple pricing depending on the amount of VMs you’re covering. You won’t have to pay any egress or cloud fees. Until now, backup had to be a roadblock for cloud projects, but thanks to Clumio, that’s no longer the case.
Why Clumio exists?
The motivation behind Clumio stems from an ongoing secular shift in the company sector. The transition from on-premises to cloud and SaaS-first computing. This change is giving rise to a new breed of enterprise businesses that share four characteristics:
A Great Chance: Many (not all) large businesses in the B2B sector target a large, well defined market with a revolutionary solution that carries a high degree of technical risk.
Cloud-Native Design: Today’s successful enterprises are those that are born in the public cloud and use it in the most optimal way possible. And only if you accomplish this can you create a solution that can scale to meet client requirements and be supplied to the customer at the proper economics. Lift-and-shift from on-premises to public cloud architectures will not succeed until “marketecture” is considered.
With the rise of software as a service (SaaS), the days of physically sending a consumer a downloaded app or box of hardware are over. For the client, SaaS is the norm. In addition to the recurring/pay-as-you-go subscription model, SaaS also includes other payment structures. Everything is straightforward; the service is provided, and the client simply uses it.
Cloud-agnostic architecture: Last but not least, the architecture must be cloud-agnostic, allowing the end user to access the service from any public cloud. This is because modern applications are increasingly being developed and deployed in the cloud.
Based on the aforementioned, it’s easy to see what motivated the creators of Clumio.
What Clumio does?
Where do things go from here for Clumio? Clumio’s direction was set by the structure outlined in the preceding sentence. Furthermore, we weren’t the only ones to encounter this. We set out to identify our “big potential” by analyzing the work of companies like Snowflake and Sumologic in the areas of data warehousing and log management and analytics, respectively. As the shift to cloud computing has progressed, this has become increasingly evident. No longer were we limited to having data stored locally. Data for a typical client out there was stored either on-premises, in the cloud in the form of applications that leveraged IaaS and PaaS, or in other SaaS solutions, depending on where the customer was in their path to the cloud.
This held true independent of the customer’s current stage of the cloud adoption process. Dispersed data necessitated a centralized hub for retrieval and storage. We saw a need for a simple, consumable solution to protect data in all locations, and the incumbents, who had been focused on infrastructure and on-premises, were caught off guard by this trend. It was a great chance to go up against more established companies, which meant a lot.
