When you have a lot of data in your data warehouse, NoSQL database or cloud-native data store, recovering all of that data after it has become corrupted or inaccurate is difficult. Datos IO, which was founded by a group of veteran Data Domain, Veritas and IBM researchers, is now trying to make it easier to recover data from these big data services. The company is launching out of stealth today and is also announcing that it has raised a $12.5 million Series A funding round.
The lead investors in this round were Lightspeed Venture Partners and True Ventures. Other participants include a number of angel investors, including CrunchFund. The company previously raised a $2.75 million seed round led by True Ventures.
The company tells me it plans to use this new influx of capital to build out its engineering and sales teams to bring its product to market and onboard its first revenue-generating customers. Some current early adopters include eBay, Capital One and Threat Stack.
Datos IO argues that current next-gen databases lack the recovery tools that enterprise customers require. The company describes its services as the “industry’s first distributed versioning platform that guarantees repair-free recovery across all scale-out databases and provides enterprises with a single state of true for their distributed applications.” In essence, it wants to do for next-gen databases what tools like Veritas (now owned by Symantec) did for Oracle databases before.
The plan is to make the product generally available in 2016.

I was delighted with the service from the R3 team. My daughter, a teacher, had two years of lessons on a USB stick. She had tried another company after being told the charge would be either around £100 or around £200. But when they received the stick, they said they needed to buy a widget to sort out the problem, and that the cost would be around £385. So I asked them to send me the stick back.
Then I went to the team at R3 Data Recovery. They gave me an order number over the phone and I then wrote a letter, enclosed it with the stick, and sent it off to Sheffield on a Friday. R3 told me it would be either £79 plus VAT or £149 plus VAT. They notified me on Monday that it had arrived, and on Tuesday morning that they sent me a list of files they could recover. The charge was £79 plus VAT. I paid by bank transfer, and later that day they uploaded all the files into a Dropbox folder. So a hearty recommendation from me.
What impressed me particularly, their success apart, is that if R3 had said it was £149 plus VAT I would have paid without questioning them. But they didn’t. Excellent service.
