According to the State of Enterprise Data Resiliency and Disaster Recovery 2019 report, 50.4% of all organisations surveyed recently experienced a DR event, with ransomware as the leading cause. Ransomware is one of the biggest concerns for IT leaders today and this threat is requiring many organisations to rethink their DR plans. Datrium’s on-demand cloud-native DRaaS solution with VMware Cloud on AWS makes it simple and far more economical for organisations to recover when disaster strikes. The expansion of the Datrium Global Partner Network enables organisations worldwide to work with specialised resellers and distributors in their region to modernise their data centres, transform DR with a failproof DRaaS solution and free their organisations from the complexity of traditional infrastructure.
“We’ve experienced high demand from customers looking to transform their data centres with more cloud-based solutions,” said Tim Page, Chief Executive Officer at Datrium. “At Datrium, we pride ourselves on delivering unprecedented flexibility and simplicity to help customers transform their IT. The new and expanded partner program reflects our mission to bring on-demand, failproof and cost-effective DR with VMware Cloud on AWS to enterprises everywhere. This is an exciting time for Datrium and our growing Global Partner Network.”
The new DRaaS Select tier provides partners with additional services opportunities and enables them to better guide their customers through DR transformation initiatives and protect them from the growing threat of ransomware. DRaaS Select partners receive the highest level of training and certification in DR with VMware Cloud on AWS so they are uniquely equipped to help organisations protect themselves from disasters in an economical way. Participation in the DRaaS Select tier is by invitation only and is limited to an exclusive set of highly skilled partners in specific geographic regions.
