Verizon and Actifio Team on Data Virtualization Platform
Verizon Enterprise Solutions is gearing up to launch a new cloud backup service based on Actifio’s copy data virtualization platform, the company announced this week. Verizon said the service, which is called Premise to Cloud Backup, will help virtualized infrastructure users to “enable a unified hybrid cloud environment where data is easy to manage, access and protect.”
Why It’s Good for the Channel: Anytime two companies team up on a joint solution, the level of exposure for said product increases exponentially. Current Actifio channel partners will now have access to both Verizon’s entire customer base as well as the company’s numerous technological resources, meaning said partners have the opportunity to capture more potential buyers than ever before.
