20 Most Promising Back Up Solution Providers 2016 – Actifio: Transforming Copy Data into Strategic Business Advantage
Today, protecting operational data— backing it up and ensuring security— and facilitating rapid data access has become more complicated for organizations. Constant information backup demands significant capital outlays, tedious maintenance
requirements, and flexibility of proprietary tools. Moreover, backup solutions currently are mere extensions to existing platforms that add expense and complexity without addressing the core issues of data protection and recovery. In such a scenario, embracing latest technology, Actifio virtualizes data and eliminates redundancies, saving time and cost and minimizing complexity.
