Bellevue-based Doyenz,  which sells a disaster recovery cloud-based service to small and medium-sized businesses, has laid off a number of staffers, GeekWire has learned.

“We had to reduce staff and to align with our business priorities, and we still have a substantial though smaller team that will continue to provide services to our substantial customer base,” said founder Ashutosh Tiwary in an email to GeekWire. Tiwary did not say how many people were let go or why the cuts were made, but we will update the post as we hear more.

Last December, Doyenz, which had raised $10 million from angel investor Gordon Burns and others, employed more than 60 people. (Correction. Visio co-founder Jeremy Jaech was incorrectly listed as an investor in Doyenz. He sits on the company’s board). At the time, Tiwary told GeekWire that they wanted to make the recovery of applications as easy as turning on a light switch.

“We have the technology, the experience of building and delivering a service, and the channel to make us number one. The opportunity is ours to lose,” he said.
