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 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 Cloud.

  1. For  long term data retention, Actifio Sky replicates data directly to IBM Cloud ObjectStorage.
  2. For medium RTO in IBM Cloud, Actifio Sky replicates deduplicated data to IBM Cloud optimizing network utilization.
  3. For low RPO and instant recovery in IBM Cloud, Actifio Sky replicates data in native application format.

Recover on-demand: Actifio Sky running in IBM 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 Cloud.

Clone on-demand: Actifio Sky re-uses data stored in IBM 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.
