DUBAI, UAE – July 23, 2015 – Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced the expansion of its revolutionary enterprise-class data management technology to customer workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Actifio Sky for AWS is now available as a listing in AWS Marketplace making it easier for customers to dramatically improve their data access, agility, and control by running Actifio’s award-winning Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology on the AWS Cloud.
Actifio pioneered copy data virtualization, decoupling business data from business infrastructure in much the same way hypervisors decouple compute from physical servers. Customers using Actifio are able to:
- Capture production application data at the block level, as it changes
- Manage that data as a single “golden master,” updated incrementally forever
- Use an unlimited number of point-in-time, virtual copies – available instantly, on demand – across a full range of data management use cases
Actifio replaces the siloed systems customers typically use to protect and access copies of production data, helping them accelerate recovery time objectives and time-to-market for new applications. Customers also save money on third-party software licenses and unnecessary infrastructure sprawl, in addition to radically simplifying operations through the consolidation of multiple point tools into a single, easy-to-use data management platform.
“Today’s agreement with AWS puts Actifio just a few clicks away from a whole new segment of enterprise customers, who can now tap the transformative power of our copy data virtualization technology for workloads running on the AWS Cloud,” said Actifio CEO and Founder Ash Ashutosh. “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.”
“We’re delivering cloud services to protect our clients’ businesses today using Actifio for AWS, and could not be happier with the result,” said Mark Metz, CEO of Relus, a rapidly growing AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner in Atlanta. “Actifio on AWS is a powerful solution for our business, enabling us to provide better SLAs to our clients with less cost and complexity than they ever thought possible.”
“At AWS, we’re always looking at new opportunities to deliver expanded services and functionality to our customers via AWS Marketplace,” said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “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.”
