VMWorld 2019: Hands On WIth Clumio
There has been a lot of interest in Clumio for some time. When I posted my last video on our dinner with Poojan Kumar, CEO and founder of Clumio, I couldn’t say a whole lot because they were still in stealth.
As I mentioned before, there was a lot of interest because they are back by Sutter Hills Ventures and Mike Speiser who typically invests a lot of time and effort in nurturing young companies in his portfolio. Then there was a lot of buzz in the community because they began hiring some of the best in the field. They hired a lot of people with experience in early stage companies that have been hugely successful.
Finally, at VMWorld, Clumio launched, and they did it in a big way. Not only did they have an impressive booth for a company just coming out of stealth, they took Gold in the data protection category, and they won Best of Show. A pretty impressive first showing.
I was able to get a bit of Poojan’s time at the show for a quick interview and then I got a hands on demo of the product.
