Actifio Copy Data Virtualization Solution Streamlines AWS Workloads

July 28, 2015

Cloud service providers and data center operators are continuously searching for ways to streamline and simplify their network architectures, as the amount of big data continues to rise. Actifio, a company specializing in copy data virtualization solutions, is set the help them achieve their goals.

The company has announced an expansion of its data management technology for customer workloads running in Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Actifio Sky for AWS solution is now available via the AWS Marketplace, putting the company in league with the largest and most powerful cloud infrastructure provider in the world.

The solution is designed to help service providers and data center operators improve data access as well as agility and control. It works by routing data through the Actifio Virtual Data Pipeline technology on AWS Cloud. The solution decouples business data from infrastructure on a virtual level, enabling users to capture production application data at the block level. Benefits also include being able to manage data as a single master source, which may be updated incrementally. Customers may also enjoy an unlimited number of point-in-time, virtual copies that are available on demand across a range of data management use cases.

"Large scale enterprise customers are already using Actifio Sky for AWS to enhance both the protection and the accessibility of their data, increasing speed, savings, and simplicity without the need for costly and cumbersome capital expenditures," said Ash Ashutosh, CEO and founder of Actifio.

"With Actifio Sky for AWS now available in AWS Marketplace, customers have secure, scalable and cost-effective access to Actifio's copy data virtualization technology," added Dave McCann, vice president, AWS Marketplace.

Customers reap the rewards by saving money on third-party software licenses while simultaneously reining in unnecessary infrastructure sprawl. Other solutions typically consist of siloed systems for protecting and accessing copies of production data, which can be eliminated with Actifio’s offering. Users also benefit from simplified operations and consolidated tools via a single data management platform.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
