Changing the Economics for Service Providers

We talk a lot about Actifio’s powerful value proposition for customers… freeing them from the stress and expense of the storage explosion, and enabling them to recover anything instantly for up to 90% less than they’re paying today. Take that same technology, though, and apply it within the context of a managed service provider’s business, and that value prop changes in some powerful ways.

This week we’re focused on telling that story in and around the big HostingCon show in Boston. It boils down to a simple value proposition: Deliver an SLA with guaranteed recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives for up to 90% less than you’re paying today.

This is a big deal. Actifio essentially transforms the underlying economics of what cloud-based service providers can deliver. It let’s them deliver “enterprise class” services – meaning services with the specific service level agreement businesses need – at consumer grade pricing – meaning per gigabyte pricing that can be competitive with non-SLA vendors like Carbonite and even Amazon.

Today we also announced a relationship with Netwave, a leading cloud service provider based in Ohio. Here’s what their VP Mark Goodson they had to say about us:

“Netwave has hundreds of customers eager for new cloud data management solutions as they look to improve data availability, disaster recovery and business continuity across their organizations without the added expense of opening and managing new data centers. With Actifio, we can offer these customers customized cloud services with application-specific Service Level Agreements at a price unheard of using existing technology. This is a win/win all around, for our customers, and for us.”

Win-win. Where have I heard that from a customer before? Gotta love it.

If you’d like to learn more, please stop by our booth at HostingCon this week. We’re in #212, right behind Ingram Micro.
