ESG – Lab Validation Report
ESG Lab Validation Report
“Constantly growing data volumes put pressure on data protection systems, processes, and budgets. In fact, IT managers surveyed by ESG reported that one of their top two goals for 2011-12 was to find ways to better manage data growth. Massively growing data volumes and shrinking backup windows make data protection difficult; a solution that reduces the cost of network bandwidth and disk capacity is a compelling alternative to traditional backup and recovery software.
ESG Lab confirmed Actifio PAS’s ability to efficiently reduce capacity and bandwidth requirements for both local and remote copy data. Using a 50 GB data set with 40% annual growth for a one-year retention period, ESG Lab compared Actifio to a traditional disk-to-tape backup scenario. ESG Lab observed a savings of 29 times (2900%) in capacity, and a 95% savings outcome in network bandwidth with Actifio when compared to the traditional approach.”
