Datos IO and DataStax Collaborate

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 7 — In tandem with its RecoverX launch, Datos IO, a provider of next-generation data protection solutions, today announced a new strategic partnership with DataStax, the company that delivers enterprise Apache Cassandra. In joining the DataStax Partner Network (DPN), Datos IO will enable data recovery, protection and management to enterprises deploying high-value, fast performance applications on Apache Cassandra, where issues of data quality, data recoverability, and data governance are vital.

DataStax Enterprise is the premier database platform based on the open source Apache Cassandra database, and is broadly used today by enterprises deploying and scaling applications with levels of responsiveness, elasticity and scale until recently considered technically impossible. As the adoption of next generation, third platform (IDC 3rdPlatform: enterprise applications (SaaS, IoT, mobile, social, analytics, etc.) increases, so does the need for complementary solutions enabling the management and recovery of scale-out data over its lifecycle. As a technology partner, Datos IO RecoverX provides DataStax customers with data protection against data corruption, disasters and human error.

“No matter how advanced, fast, agile and scalable the database, all data needs protection,” said Aaron Morton, the CEO at The Last Pickle and Apache Cassandra Committer. “Datos IO’s RecoverX guarantees that – in the event of human error, logical corruption or other catastrophe – databases recover swiftly. By reducing operator complexity and removing time consuming activity log replays, RecoverX manages data protection more efficiently that anything in the market today.”

The DataStax Partner Network (DPN) Program is designed to increase adoption of DataStax Enterprise Edition (DSE), the Apache Cassandra-based database used by more than 500 companies worldwide, including 30 percent of the Fortune 100.

“Cassandra is the best database for cloud applications, and Datos IO brings modern data management capabilities to that community,” said Matt Pfeil, Co-Founder & Chief Customer Officer, DataStax. “At DataStax, we’re excited to see Datos grow the Cassandra partner ecosystem with their focus on enterprises solving significant real world problems.”

“As businesses scale their use of Cassandra databases across enterprise applications, they need next-generation data protection solutions for data recoverability at scale,” said Tarun Thakur, co-founder and CEO, Datos IO. “Datos IO is spearheading this looming need for third platform applications and cloud database protection with our newly launched flagship product, RecoverX – developed specifically to help businesses operationalize and scale their adoption of Cassandra for enterprise applications.”
