Arpio, a Durham, NC-based disaster recovery (DR) solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS), announced that it raised $8.2 million in seed funding.
The round was led by S3 Ventures and Companyon Ventures, alongside TDF Ventures and CreativeCo Capital. Existing investors YCombinator, Uncorrelated Ventures, Valor Ventures, and Triangle Tweener Fund also participated.
With the funds, Arpio will continue to expand its AWS service coverage, increase automation, and invest in go-to-market.
“Disaster recovery is a requirement for most mission-critical applications, but we found that legacy tools didn’t work for the Cloud.” said Doug Neumann, CEO of Arpio. “They back up servers and data, but leave all of the surrounding cloud infrastructure to users. This means more work for infrastructure engineers, slower recovery times, and more risk exposure. So we created Arpio, the first DR solution designed specifically for Cloud workloads.”
True to its original mission, Arpio backs up everything needed to fully recover cloud applications — data, servers, and infrastructure — including configurations, networking, identity, and security. Arpio has over 50 enterprise customers—including Choice Hotels, 23andMe, Ricoh, and SAS.
