Taking The Test, Making The Grade. ESG’s Lab Validation of Actifio 6.0

By Andrew Gilman – Sr. Dir. of Corporate and Channel Marketing –  From EMC’s recent moves – realigning their BRS division around the huge $46B spend next year on Copy Data – it’s evident that managing massive amounts of data and subsequently application SLAs will be an increasingly difficult task for CIOs (technologically) and CFOs (financially) in 2014.  The good news is that we’ve recently introduced the SIXTH generation of our Copy Data Management platform specifically designed to help users do much more with much less.  Now enjoyed by hundreds of enterprises and cloud service providers worldwide, we invited Enterprise Strategy Group’s Lab team to experience the new release themselves and take it through its paces.

From our customer reviews (such as Texas Wesleyan University who saved $2.5M and reduced RTO from days to minutes) we know that we’ve developed the best CDM architecture in the market.  But we’re an analytical bunch here at Actifio and so we asked ESG, “what can an end-user really expect in 6.0?”

ESG Lab Validation 6.0What they find is incredible.  Across four different areas: Manageability, Functionality, Agility, and Efficiency they found that Actifio excels not by ten or even fifty percentage points, but by hundreds and in some cases thousands! Take for example the time it takes to clone, mask, and virtually provision an Oracle database for dev/test.  With the new Actifio workflow engine, end users can develop 25X faster.  Users can manage to their application SLAs with 29X less storage capacity.  RTOs are measured in seconds not hours or days.

To find out more about the testing and methodology we invite you to download the ESG lab validation study.  And if you’d like to hear ESG’s founder and Sr. Analyst, Steve Duplessie discuss the testing with his Lab team you can check out the on-demand webcast below.
