VMworld 2018 Q&A: Datrium will Showcase Cloud DR with CloudShift and VMware Cloud on AWS at Booth 1350 Share2

Written by

Are you attending VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas, NV?  If so, I invite you to add Datrium to your MUST SEE list of vendors. 

With so many vendors exhibiting at VMworld, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your busy schedule?  One of the companies on VMblog's MUST SEE list this year is Datrium.  The company is a leader in Open Converged Infrastructure for hybrid cloud, converging Tier 1 HCI, scale-out backup and cloud disaster recovery for vastly simpler administration, protection of hybrid cloud infrastructure, and higher IO performance than available with traditional alternatives.  And I'm really looking forward to seeing a demo of their new CloudShift DR orchestration service.

Read this exclusive pre-show interview between VMblog and Datrium to learn what they have planned for the upcoming VMworld 2018 event and why you need to make sure to visit their booth.

VMblog:  To kick things off, can you give readers a little background on Datrium and what you do? 

Datrium:  Datrium provides a hybrid cloud platform for running critical, high performance workloads on-prem with integrated cloud data mobility and protection.  Customers choose Datrium over alternatives because it's simple at scale, cost-effective and high performance, and includes 'invisible' backup on prem and in the cloud.

VMblog:  As a VMworld 2018 sponsor, how can people find you this year? 

Datrium:  VMworld attendees can find Datrium in the Expo Hall at Booth #1350.  Datrium will also be at the House of Blues on Monday, 8/27 at 7PM for ‘Resilient & Ready to Party'.

VMblog:  What is new with Datrium at VMworld?

Datrium:  Datrium will be demonstrating our new CloudShift DR orchestration service announced on August 14. CloudShift is a SaaS-based DR orchestration service for VMware that combines radically simple operation, low recovery point objectives (RPO), low AWS cloud cost, and end-to-end readiness assurance. The combination of Datrium's single data stack design, which is inclusive of both primary and backup data, together with its SaaS platform for hybrid clouds, ensures enterprises can finally handle the challenge plaguing most real or tested disaster recovery (DR) events: predictable success.

Come by booth #1350 and see how Cloud DR with CloudShift and VMware Cloud on AWS can be made simple, fail proof, and cost effective with lower RPO.

VMblog:  Explain why a VMworld attendee should add you to their MUST SEE list?

Datrium:  VMware will be talking a lot about VMware Cloud on AWS at VMworld this year. As a VMware partner, Datrium has developed a completely unique solution that combines VMware Cloud on AWS with Datrium CloudShift to deliver true on-demand cloud DR. Spin up a Cloud DR site when disaster strikes and turn it off after you failback to your data center, all fully orchestrated and pre-validated. Sound too good to be true?  Come by the booth and see it for yourself.

VMblog:  What are you looking forward to most at VMworld this year?

Datrium:  Great demos, mind-blowing magic tricks, awesome parties and winning great prizes - in fact all are possible at the Datrium booth #1350.

VMblog:  Does your company have any speaking sessions during the show?  If so, can you give us the who, what, when and where?
