Databarracks team

Who we are

Founders Peter, Oliver and Tom were available to customers 24/7 when they were starting out back in 2003. That dedication to customer service has not changed since.

It takes a lot to make a business resilient. Databarracks are at your beck and call to make it easy. Our engineers’ combined experience means there’s not much we haven’t seen.

We build a relationship with you from day one - so when you need help, we already understand your needs. And if things go wrong, you know we’re there for you 24/7/365.

There’s no such thing as ‘above and beyond’. If your systems aren’t supporting your business, we’ll work until they are again.

We’re good at this.

We man our freephone telephone support lines with trained engineers 24/7/365. We can support on-site anywhere in the U.K. and have remote and telephone support across the globe at any time.

Peter Groucutt

Managing Director

Peter has a history in understanding and mitigating risk, having spent many years working in risk management roles within the banking sector – particularly developing applications to monitor value-at-risk across the banks treasury and hedged products. In 2000 Peter combined his skills in application development with his love of sailing to set up his own company building ship monitoring and harbour management software, integrating Search and Rescue using G.P.S. and Radar.

Peter’s main focus is to combine Databarracks’ constantly improving services with a continued passion for customer service, promoting the company’s shared belief in ‘treating our customer as we like to be treated ourselves.’ This isn’t an empty promise. Peter is available to all Databarracks customers 24/365.

Oliver Mather

Technical Director

Following the successful global rollout of a new banking system for ABN Amro, Oliver founded Databarracks with Peter with the mission of developing a simple, effective and trust worthy backup service.

Ten years later, Oliver continues to work closely with Peter and Tom to shape the company’s technical strategy, from the technical support of new products and implementations, to the management and development of service delivery platforms.

Tom Roberts

Financial Director

Prior to managing Databarracks’ financial strategy, Tom managed one of
the UK’s largest independent book manufacturing units. After suffering a damaging data loss, he was approached by Peter and Oliver to form Databarracks, and was immediately struck by the value of backup as a service.
