Datrium, a leader in unified hybrid cloud computing and data management, announced that it has closed an oversubscribed $60M round of Series D funding. Led by Samsung Catalyst Fund, with participation from Icon Ventures, and existing investors NEA and Lightspeed Venture Partners.  Michael Mullany of Icon Ventures, who has had a rich career in Silicon Valley including a role as VP of Marketing and Products for VMware, will join the Datrium Board of Directors in conjunction with the financing.

"As a world leader in memory and storage technologies, we're always looking for novel and innovative ways to advance datacenter technology," said Shankar Chandran, senior vice president and managing director, Samsung Catalyst Fund.

"We are thrilled to partner with Samsung and Icon Ventures to expand our technical and geographical momentum," said Tim Page, CEO of Datrium. "Enterprises globally have the same problems in simplifying compute and data management across on-prem and cloud. Where SANs don't even have a  path to cloud, traditional HCI has too many tradeoffs for core datacenters - backup requires separate purchasing and administration, and cloud DR automation is seldom guaranteed. Larger enterprises are realizing that Datrium software offers them a simpler path."

Recent Datrium achievements and innovations have included the industry's highest-capacity workload performance benchmark against an on-prem DVX shared data pool; Cloud DVX, offering 2x - 10x lower AWS costs for cloud backup; and CloudShift, DR orchestration for on-prem and cloud for Datrium's single data stack, enabling guarantees of DR readiness and instant-RTO workload restarts on-prem.

Enterprises have welcomed these hybrid cloud innovations with more than 30 percent of new Datrium customers adopting the company's Cloud DVX in the first three months of availability.  Fortune 100 customers across industries including financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, and entertainment have already implemented Datrium and simplified their hybrid cloud operating models.  Enterprise customers are not just voting with their dollars; as of Sept. 6, 2018, Datrium has an Overall Rating of five out of five in the Hyperconverged Infrastructure market, based on 67 reviews on the Gartner Peer Insights.
