I had the opportunity to meet with HYCU today, the sixth on the IT Press Tour #31. Simon Taylor, CEO, led off the “Leverage to Scale” presentation with an overview of where the company has been providing purpose-built back-up and recovery for Nutanix to growing to provide solutions for the rest of the cloud. They currently have more than 1000 customers in 52 countries and are as close to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as they are Nutanix.
While Veritas was built for Unix, Commvault for Windows, Veeam for VMware, HYCU is being built for multi-cloud. As budgets moving to lines of business (LOBs) with more control and power, hybrid-multi-cloud infrastructures are proliferating with data protection being siloed and mired in the past.
