Clumio Announces Clumio Protect for Microsoft SQL Server on Amazon EC2, Further Strengthening Ransomware Protection for Mission Critical Applications in AWS

Clumio Protect for Microsoft SQL removes the need for legacy backup software or manual scripting by providing ransomware protection and dramatically lowering recovery time objectives

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clumio® Inc., an industry leader in simplifying cloud data protection, today announced the availability of Clumio Protect for Microsoft SQL Server on Amazon Elastic Compute Cluster (Amazon EC2). Clumio Protect provides ransomware and bad actor protection that enables the lowest Recovery Time Objective (RTO) to meet any Service Level Agreement (SLA).

As business-critical applications and databases move into the public cloud, new challenges arise that require a cloud native architecture, built in the public cloud, to deliver on today’s data protection requirements. Clumio Protect already protects SQL Server within Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), however, many enterprises continue to run SQL Server inside of Amazon EC2 instances to take advantage of native SQL Server capabilities and continue using their on-premises workflows and licenses.

Enhancing Data Protection for Microsoft SQL Server on Amazon EC2

Integrated point-in-time backups are not natively found in SQL Server on Amazon EC2, leaving enterprises to leverage manual SQL scripts and native tools, or legacy on-premises backup products in the cloud. These protection options can result in increased cyber-attack vulnerability, missed Recovery Point Objective (RPO)/Recovery Time Objective (RTO), database performance impact, and higher compliance risks.

“Data protection of SQL Server running on Amazon EC2 creates an inflection point for enterprises: Drag your legacy backup products to the cloud, or try to build it yourself via complex scripts,” said Chadd Kenney, Vice President of Product, Clumio. “Neither option is viable in today’s cloud-first model where cloud native scalability, low RPO/RTO with granular recovery, and ransomware protection are first principles. Clumio Protect for SQL Server on Amazon EC2 extends the existing SQL support of Amazon RDS and VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), delivering a comprehensive solution that provides a DBA-like experience, without…
