Actifio GO turns Sky into SaaS backup
With Actifio GO, multi-cloud backup doesn’t require backup software or any on-premises appliances; the SaaS data protection is based on the Salesforce model.
Actifio is going SaaS with its copy data management platform, allowing customers to back up and restore data without using on-premises infrastructure.
The idea behind the newly launched Actifio GO — based on Actifio Sky software — is to enable customers to quickly deploy the service and begin protecting data in multiple clouds without installing additional software or hardware.
The new software-as-a-service [SaaS] platform offers direct-to-cloud backup to AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google, IBM and Wasabi public clouds. The initial GO supports VMware vSphere virtual machines.
