Can’t Leverage Cloud Fast Enough
Actifio Sky for IBM Bluemix Cloud
How It Works
Actifio Sky software is deployed on-premises either as a virtual or physical appliance. It’s deployed as a virtual machine appliance in IBM Bluemix cloud.
Capture: Incremental forever and database consistent backups by integrating with APIs such as RMAN for Oracle, VSS for MS SQL, VADP for VMWare
Store: Store backup data in its native application format (Gold Copy) on any storage. Based on SLAs, Actifio Sky manages the lifecycle of data.
Replicate: Actifio Sky has three ways to replicate data into the IBM Bluemix cloud.
- For long term data retention, Actifio Sky replicates data directly to IBM Cloud ObjectStorage.
- For medium RTO in IBM Bluemix cloud, Actifio Sky replicates deduplicated data to IBM Bluemix cloud optimizing network utilization.
- For low RPO and instant recovery in IBM Bluemix cloud, Actifio Sky replicates data in native application format.
Recover on-demand: Actifio Sky running in Bluemix cloud can be used to recover multi terabyte databases instantly. For large VMware farms, Actifio Resiliency Director can orchestrate 1-click DR for 1000s of virtual machines using on-demand baremetal ESX servers in IBM Bluemix cloud.
Clone on-demand: Actifio Sky re-uses data stored in Bluemix cloud for DR purposes to also provision multiple space efficient virtual database clones for Test / Dev, DevOps, and Data Scientists.
How to Buy
Actifio Sky is priced on the amount of data at source that needs to be managed. It starts at 5 TB minimum and scales to Petabytes.
Actifio Big Database Solution Built on IBM
Actifio developed the Big Database Solution to meet the needs of today’s database administrators, developers, application owners, and DevOps teams. The solution, built on IBM Storage, enables instant creation of virtual database clones while using virtually no additional storage capacity. These copies can be used to accelerate application development or for instant rollback/recovery from an unexpected outage. And, virtual copies can be presented locally, in a remote data center, or in IBM Bluemix or any cloud for ultimate flexibility. See Actifio on the IBM Partnerworld directory
