A decade ago, the information-technology world faced a serious case of tech sprawl.
As data became more important to the enterprise, IT organizations were seeking to move on from the technical limitations of tape storage by deploying deduplication appliances throughout multiple data centers. There were backups for backups, and production data became an unwieldy monster.
Actifio Inc. seized on this opportunity by pioneering the industry’s first copy data management software platform. Through virtualization, Actifio enabled its customers to collapse physical copies, speed time to access, and move information across any storage platform, ultimately including the cloud.
Last month, the company unveiled Actifio 10c, the latest version of its secure, cloud-centric copy data management platform. The release included a set of significant new capabilities, which reflected the evolving landscape of major cloud provider services, DevOps, and a hybrid IT world.
