- The company claims that the data migration features on the Komprise platform can transport data to the cloud up to 27 times more quickly than rival alternatives.
- The company claims that businesses may more readily decide which kind of cloud storage infrastructure is ideal for their workloads by using its software.
Komprise Inc. has raised USD 37 million to expand its data management platform, which helps companies effectively move on-premises workloads to the cloud.
The recent investment was announced by Campbell, the California-based company. Top Tier Ventures, Celesta Capital, Canaan Partners, and Multiplier Capital invested. A total of USD 85 million has been raised.
Multiplier Capital Managing General Partner Kevin Sheehan said, “We invested in Komprise because of their impressive growth and path to profitability combined with the massive opportunity in edge data management and unstructured data for AI/ML in the cloud. We believe in the company’s market, vision, team, and execution.”
It can take a long time to transfer data from on-premises infrastructure to the cloud. The process takes longer as a corporation transfers more data. The company claims that the data migration features on the Komprise platform can transport data to the cloud up to 27 times more quickly than rival alternatives.
The platform’s performance is partly supported by a technology called Hypertransfer. It is intended to fix issues in the SMB protocol, a network technology businesses frequently use to move data to the cloud. According to Komprise, Hypertransfer expedites data transfers and enhances cybersecurity.
Using the SMB protocol, an on-premises server can transfer files to a cloud environment, but the cloud environment must reply with data proving it has received the files. Typically, this procedure is carried out repeatedly. File transfers are slowed since the cloud environment uses a lot of bandwidth to send data back to the server.
The amount of data traffic that the SMB protocol creates during file transfers is decreased by Komprise’s Hypertransfer technology. The business claims that, as a result, information can be transferred from on-premises environments to the cloud more quickly.
Hypertransfer transfers files via a proxy rather than loading them directly into the environment while moving data to a cloud environment. A server that serves as a middleman for data transfers is known as a proxy. This configuration, according to Hypertransfer, makes it harder for hackers to create network connections to a company’s cloud deployment.
The platform from Komprise claims to make other jobs more accessible. The performance and price of cloud companies’ various types of storage infrastructure differ. The company claims that businesses may more readily decide which kind of cloud storage infrastructure is ideal for their workloads by using its software.
Data transfer to the cloud frequently involves a sizable amount of physical labor. Komprise claims that its platform automates a large portion of the most time-consuming parts of the work. For instance, if a technical problem halts data transmissions, the platform can automatically restart them.
According to reports, Komprise intends to add various functionalities using the recently disclosed funding round, including the platform’s data migration functions. The startup will quicken go-to-market initiatives concurrently.
