CloudEndure is a cloud computing company that develops business continuity software solutions for disaster recovery, continuous backup, and live migration.[1] CloudEndure is headquartered in the United States with R&D in Israel.


CloudEndure was founded in 2012 by Ofer Gadish (CEO), Gil Shai (CRO), Ofir Ehrlich (VP R&D), and Leonid Feinberg (VP Product).[2] The same founders previously established AcceloWeb, which was acquired by Limelight Networks in 2011.[3][4]

CloudEndure has raised a total of $18.2 million[5] from private investors and companies such as Dell EMC, VMware, Mitsui, Infosys, and Magma Venture Partners.[6] [7] [8]

Awards for CloudEndure include the 2017 CRN Emerging Vendors Award for Storage Startups[9] and the 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor Award.[10]

CloudEndure products have been integrated as OEM software for several partner company services, including an integration into Google Cloud VM Migration Service[11] and integrations with Cisco Systems CloudCenter Disaster Recovery and Migration [12][13] and Sungard Availability Services Cloud Recovery.

Amazon made an offer to purchase CloudEndure in January 2019. Between $200 to $250 million was the negotiated price.[14] They outbid Google and acquired the company on January 10, 2019.[15][16]


CloudEndure Disaster Recovery performs continuous block-level replication and saves a dormant copy in the target infrastructure, which uses a smaller percentage of compute, storage, and memory than the primary site; this leads to minimal RTOs (recovery time objective) and RPOs (recovery point objective) when spun up in a disaster.[17]

The company offers two tiers of Disaster Recovery, as well as Continuous Backup and Live Migration products.[18]

CloudEndure’s Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions are application-agnostic [19][20][21][22][23] and can replicate workloads from physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructure to a variety of target sites, including Amazon Web Services (AWS),[24] Google Cloud Platform (GCP),[25] Microsoft Azure,[26] and VMware.[27]
