Actifio, a developer of technology to help businesses manage all the copies of their data, has introduced a new front end to its software to simplify its use for service providers with multitenant environments.
The new Actifio Global Manager, designed to improve backup and disaster recovery, was welcomed by a couple of the Boston-based vendor’s channel partners, who said the new front-end management solution will make it easier for them to close deals.
The Actifio Global Manager allows businesses or service providers to manage, monitor and handle the troubleshooting of dozens of Actifio data protection appliances, both physical and virtual, across scattered environments, said Chandra Reddy, Actifio’s vice president of product marketing.
The number of Actifio appliances deployed by customers grew quickly a couple of years ago with the introduction of virtual appliances, Reddy told CRN. “At that point, the number of appliances sprawled, including to [Amazon Web Services] environments,” he said. “Customers said they wanted a central management system. So we introduced Actifio Global Manager.”
