About Datos IO

Datos IO is the application-centric data management company for the multi-cloud world. Our flagship Datos IO RecoverX 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 traditional applications either at a VM-level via VMDK API’s or at a storage LUN-level, Datos IO has reinvented data protection by eliminating any dependencies on VM or LUN constructs — thus, enabling a true application-centric data management approach starting with next-generation cloud applications.

This revolutionary application-centric approach provides customers with dramatic backup storage efficiency, provides data management services at a granular level (e.g. rows/tables vs. entire VM or entire database), and enables customers to move their applications back and forth between public clouds or cross-cloud environments. Customers who have standardized on VMware-based environments can now scale their next-generation cloud applications on virtualized environments with the confidence of protecting their data across cloud boundaries.

Datos IO was recently awarded Product of the Year by Storage Magazine, and was recognized by Gartner in the 2016 Hype Cycle for Storage Technologies. Backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners and True Ventures, Datos IO is headquartered in San Jose, California. To learn more, please visit and follow us on Twitter at @datos_io.
