A Brief History of Copy Data [VIDEO]

We asked our founder and CEO, Ash Ashutosh to explain the history and background of Copy Data and why it’s the founding vision behind Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform.

In his short whiteboard video below, he explains the reason behind the current hodgepodge state of data management – originating from the use of sequential access tape media to make the first copy for backup and subsequent tools to address other components of data protection SLAs needed to create and manage their own physical copies of data.  We learned something new and think you might as well.
