Recently our Founder and CEO Simon Taylor shared how our multi-cloud journey was continuing with the support of Bain Capital Ventures and Acrew Capital in an $87.5M Series A funding round. It was an important milestone for the company and marked an end to an impressive first quarter for all of us at HYCU. That wasn't the only significant highlight of the first quarter of 2021. We’ve said it before and with the recent roll out of the CRN Storage 100 and The 20 Coolest Data Protection Companies of The 100 - HYCU was listed - we’ll say it again, it never gets old to win awards and garner broad industry recognition.
The past few months have been notable in that regard. Prior to last week, our Global Partner Program was recognized by CRN as a 5-Star Program – one of a few in the data protection industry to be recognized. And, the list goes on! Here’s a brief look at just a few of the accolades, honors and recognition the team at HYCU has received over the first 90+ days of 2021: Backup Review Top 100 Cloud Backup Company, BackupReview Top 25 Cloud Backup Enabler, CRN Channel Chiefs, The 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Companies Of The 2021 Cloud 100, DCIG TOP 3 Google Cloud Backup Solution, Solutions Review 28 Best Backup and Disaster Recovery Companies for 2021 and CRN 10 Cool Tech Companies That Raised Funding In March 2021.
And, while we’re both humbled and proud of the accomplishments listed to date, there are a number of recognitions we’re equally proud of. Our on-going Net Promoter Score, currently 91 with rumblings internally it’s on the rise. Continued customer feedback as part of the formal Gartner Peer Insights Review Process. Two of many recent examples here for reference, HYCU Is The #1 Backup Solution For Nutanix and HYCU Backup on Google Cloud Platform. We’d encourage you to check out what other customers are sharing at Peer Insights.
The recognition certainly makes what we all do so special. Thank you to our partners, customers, and advocates who believe there is a better way to backup and recover applications, databases, VMs and mission-critical workloads across multi-cloud platforms. We wouldn’t be here without you all and the team at HYCU that makes what we created as purpose-built backup and recovery software as a service so compelling.
From our perspective, Enrique Salem, Bain Capital Ventures Partner and HYCU Board Member, summed up recent events best:
"HYCU is the only company that delivers cloud-native enterprise data protection and recovery as a cost-effective SaaS offering, working for both on-premise and cloud environments. Every company has data they need to protect and secure, so every company needs HYCU — creating a massive market opportunity for this fast-growing, technically-advanced company."
We’re excited about what’s to come and all of us at HYCU know we’re still early in the journey. To join the growing ranks of satisfied HYCU customers and partners, give us a try. We know you won’t be disappointed.
