Verizon Sharpens Focus On Hybrid Cloud With New Actifio-Powered Cloud Backup Service
May 11, 2016
Verizon is introducing a new flavor of cloud backup, powered by data virtualization provider Actifio, aimed at businesses that are adopting a hybrid IT environment.
The latest cloud backup service — Verizon Premise to Cloud Backup — uses Actifio’s copy data virtualization platform to let businesses move and store data across virtualized infrastructures, including third-party public cloud and co-location facilities, the customer’s premises and the Verizon cloud, according to Verizon.
Initially, the backup service won’t be available to the channel. Verizon partners will have access to the service later this year, according to Dan Jablonski, Verizon’s director of cloud and IT solutions.
