Actifio 5.1 – What’s New?
Making Actifio even easier to use
While Actifio makes the copy data problem in your organization easy to solve, Actifio 5.1 makes it even easier to use. The 5.1 release includes new features in the areas of data governance, business resilience, and service management along with wizard based installation to accelerate your time to value.
As enterprise environments put a greater focus on security and control of application data, Actifio has ramped-up its data governance features to include SLA-based data integrity validation; enhanced SLA compliance reporting; user/role-based auditing; LDAP and Active Directory integration; and disk-to tape enhancements for compliance-oriented, long-term retention.
To further improve business resiliency capabilities, Actifio 5.1 has expanded the near-instant data access capabilities of the Actifio copy data storage platform with three new capabilities:
- Bare Metal Restore enables rapid recovery and rebuild of Windows and Linux servers, including to dissimilar hardware.
- Test Failover enables non-disruptive disaster recovery tests as often as needed. [Watch a video demo of Automated Failover Testing]
- FailBack and SyncBack help to resume normal operations after a disaster by only moving uniquely changed application data from the disaster recovery site back to the primary site, once it’s ready to resume operations. [Watch a video demo of Automated Failback Sync]
Service providers around the globe have embraced Actifio as a strategic technology to accelerate new service introduction, deliver new functionality and customer satisfaction, and improve their business margins. Actifio 5.1 continues to advance service management functionality by addressing operations and delivery needs with enhanced system monitoring, alert correlation and processing, auto-updates, VPN access enhancements, and improved integrated reporting.
