Datos IO Signs Promark to Distribute Application Centric Backup & Recovery Solutions in North America

Datos IO, the application centric data management company, today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Promark Technology, a premier U.S.-focused value-added distributor (VAD) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, Datos IO's RecoverX product will now be available to Promark's vast portfolio of value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States through a dedicated distribution sales team.

With 70 percent of CIOs having a cloud-first strategy, the typical enterprise is now operating IT across a multi-cloud infrastructure, deploying traditional and next-generation cloud applications on the best suited cloud whether private, public, or managed. Built on the industry-first seminal Consistent Orchestrated Distributed Recovery (CODR) data management architecture, Datos IO's RecoverX solution is elastic data management software that provides application consistent backups, orchestrated and automated any point-in-time recovery, and industry-first semantic global deduplication. Datos IO supports relational databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, big data-based filesystems, next-generation cloud applications and cloud and non-relational databases such as Cassandra and MongoDB. With RecoverX enterprises of any size can protect their data at any level of granularity and at any point in time (flexible RPOs), reduce downtime with recovery in minutes (low RTOs) not hours, save up to 70 percent on backup storage costs, and efficiently mobilize their data to, from and across clouds. This empowers enterprises to support use cases such as backup and recovery, test/dev in the cloud, cloud on-ramping and migrations.

"The rapid proliferation of next-generation applications being born in the cloud and traditional applications being migrated to the cloud has created enormous demand for Datos IO," said Peter Smails, vice president of marketing and business development at Datos IO. "We are pleased to be working with Promark to bring our solutions to their growing network of partners and customers. Our expanded reach not only enables us to meet the growing demand for our solutions but more importantly, helps organizations tackle the challenge of protecting and managing all their enterprise applications."

Promark holds a General Services Administration (GSA) schedule and distributes solutions through a two-tier distribution channel that resellers can use to sell products to government customers even if they do not hold a GSA contract themselves. Promark also has experience helping other high-growth technology companies like Veeam scale and expand their distribution.

"We've been looking for next-generation backup and recovery solutions geared towards next-generation applications," said Dale Foster, general manager of Promark Technology. "Unlike traditional backup and recovery solutions, Datos IO's cloud-first, application-centric solution is purpose-built for distributed and cloud-native applications, creating net-new opportunities for our network of resellers."
