Today, we are excited to announce that Rubrik has agreed to acquire Datos IO, a market leader in application-aware data management for cloud applications built on NoSQL databases and big data file systems. Rubrik and Datos IO share a common vision of building a cloud data management control plane that can automate, orchestrate, and secure data anywhere. This acquisition expands Rubrik’s reach into mission-critical cloud applications adopted by the Fortune 500.

Enterprises use these NoSQL databases and big data file systems to power the bleeding edge mission critical applications in several domains: Internet of Things, artificial intelligence/machine learning, real-time analytics, eCommerce, security and mobile analytics. As these companies leverage modern NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, Amazon DynamoDB) and big data file systems (Cloudera, Hortonworks) to drive digital transformation, the ability to manage and protect these applications is critical.

Datos IO’s flagship platform RecoverX has pioneered application-aware data management for cloud applications built on NoSQL databases and big data file systems. This game-changing platform delivers critical backup and recovery capabilities, while supporting modern enterprise use cases like cloud mobility, queryable recovery, and in-place analytics. Datos IO has also filed 22 patents for application-centric data management, which is a testament to their foundational innovation and product leadership.

We’ve both been delighted to see rapid market adoption of the Rubrik and Datos IO solutions. After only three years of operations, Rubrik was named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. Datos IO has also experienced rapid enterprise adoption by penetrating Fortune 100 companies, including three of the top Fortune 15 companies and the world’s largest home improvement retailer.

Together, Rubrik and Datos IO provide a formidable product portfolio to manage the modern application stack. Datos IO will continue to innovate and support its customers as Rubrik Datos IO, a new business unit led by Tarun, with dedicated sales and engineering and support resources. We are thrilled to have Datos IO join the Rubrik family. Stay tuned – we’ll have more updates coming soon!
