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 have recently used R3D to retrieve data from an external hard drive.
I called Andy at 11pm on a Saturday after my hard drive failed, he immediately ran through the symptoms and calmed my fears that all data was lost, but was honest that data recoveries are not always successful.
I required the data immediately as it was for a deadline the following Friday, the issue was I was based in London and the lab based in Sheffield.
After searching all data companies in and around London none would answer my call on a Saturday. In fact no one else would answer my call or say they could look at my case on the Sunday.
I took the drive myself to R3D and was very impressed with their facilities. Andy also explained the whole process and what they were doing at each stage.
Unfortunately the hard drive had a physical failure and needed to be rebuilt to have any chance of recovering the information.
After starting the rebuild at 4pm on the Sunday, Andy advised it would take him and his team until the morning to know if any information was recoverable - fantastic I thought. Andy and Mark got to work on my drive as soon as I left and by 10pm on Sunday they had retrieved almost the entirety of the information of my hard drive.
I cannot reccomend R3D highly enough, they are clearly experts in their field and have a passion for what they do. Through the whole process Andy kept me informed of progress and explained everything they were doing.
