2015 GARTNER HYPE CYCLE FOR BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY MANAGEMENT
ACTIFIO RECOGNIZED BY GARTNER IN FOUR AREAS OF THE HYPE CYCLE – COPY DATA MANAGEMENT, RECOVERY ASSURANCE, DATA DEDUPLICATION, AND CONTINUOUS DATA PROTECTION.
In the report, Gartner placed Copy Data Management as a technology on the Hype Cycle for the first time, listing Actifio as a vendor in the space.
The report stated, “many organizations have become acutely aware of the increasing cost of managing copy data, whose capacity is often significantly higher than production storage due to multiple copies for different use cases and less managed retention periods.
IT organizations have historically used different storage and software products to deliver backup, archive, replication, test/development and other data-intensive services with very little control or management across these services.
This results in over-investment in storage capacity, software licenses and operational expenditure costs associated with managing excessive storage and software.
Copy data management facilitates the use of one copy of data for all of these functions, thereby dramatically reducing the need for multiple unmanaged copies of data and enabling organizations to cut costs associated with multiple disparate software licenses and storage islands.”
Gartner also highlighted Recovery Assurance as a technology on the cycle and listed Actifio in that space as well. Gartner wrote, “The primary objective of recovery assurance products is to reduce the cost and improve the predictability of meeting critical recovery targets.” They continued, “After the virtual test configuration is activated at the recovery site, IT administrators can initiate automated failover of the in-scope applications from the primary site as often as needed.
They can carry out recovery tests of individual IT services on a weekly or daily basis, rather than only doing so either yearly or quarterly. Reporting capabilities allow IT administrators to be alerted to potential problems based on either standard or user-defined thresholds.” This ability to test and prove your disaster recovery plan effectiveness as often as you need, without disrupting production systems, is a key reason organizations select Actifio to transform their disaster recovery approach.
Finally, Gartner also listed Actifio as a vendor for two more mature technology areas, Data Deduplication and Continuous Data Protection.
