Revivio Revs Up With $25M

Revivio Inc. has parlayed an early stake in an emerging storage market into $25 million in new funding.

The Lexington, Mass.-based startup, which ships an enterprise continuous data protection (CDP) appliance, will next week announce the closing of its third funding round, bringing its total to $55 million since its October 2001 inception. Revivio will use the money to build a small sales staff as it tries to cash in on what analysts see as a growing market.

Revivios main competition in this still-nascent market comes mainly from fellow startups Alacritus Software Inc., Mendocino Software, and XOsoft (see Alacritus Debuts Continuous Backup, Mendocino Scores $15M, and XOsoft Turns Back Time).

Revivio has lined up early customers for its backup-and-recovery devices -- including the University of New Mexico and -- without a sales force. Senior VP of business development Kirby Wadsworth says Revivio will hire four or five dedicated sales people while also trying to build up a channel.

CDP products continually record data changes and store only the changes instead of the entire database. They also allow recovery from any point in the past instead of only at fixed points.
