ACTIFIO SOLUTIONS FOR THE ENTERPRISE
IT is dead. At the very least, CIOs want less ownership and responsibility for managing their own information technology infrastructure, even as the demands on that infrastructure grow.
IT infrastructure has become an overly expensive, capital-hogging utility… a commodity – like water or dial tone – to be acquired on demand and according to specification, but minimized in expense and complexity.
At the same time, business applications are more strategic than ever. Businesses depend on applications that they expect to always be on, and are most often developing new ones they need ready right now.
The problem is that separating your more strategic applications from your more commoditized infrastructure is harder than it should be. The reason is that the data that’s the lifeblood of your business is bound up in storage architectures designed in the 1980’s. It’s siloed into use cases that create copies without knowing what copies already exist. It takes too long to access, and costs too much to store and protect.
You’re already moving your business toward the scalability of a public, private, or hybrid cloud delivery model; toward the efficiency of applications, platforms, or Infrastructure-as-a-Service; and toward the simplicity of the consumer-grade software and services we all use every day. And you’ve already figured out it’s a lot harder than it seems.
ACTIFIO ENTERPRISE IS THE SOLUTION
Actifio Enterprise™ is the highly scalable copy data management platform that virtualizes application data to improve the resiliency, agility, and cloud mobility of your business.
It works by virtualizing data in much the same way other technologies have virtualized compute and networking.
HOW IT WORKS
Actifio Enterprise enables users to capture data from production systems, manage it in the most efficient way possible, and use virtual or physical copies of the data whenever and wherever they are needed.
Application data is captured at block level, in native format, according to a specified SLA. A Golden copy of that data is created, moved, and stored once and is then updated incrementally with only the changed blocks of data in an “incremental forever” model. Unlimited virtual copies of the data can then be accessed instantly for any required use, without proliferating physical copies and taking up additional expensive storage infrastructure.
SOLUTIONS FOR IMPROVED RESILIENCY
Today’s enterprise needs to plan for and deliver continuous operations. Yesterday’s ability to recover over time is no longer sufficient for the 24×7 pace of modern organizations. Actifio Enterprise delivers solutions for business resiliency aimed at continuous operations in the face of uncertain events.
Use cases include transforming traditional backup to modernize data protection and deliver near instant data access in the case of a loss or failure, moving beyond reactive disaster recovery to proactive business continuity and resiliency, and enhancing data governance and compliance with data management requirements.
SOLUTIONS FOR ENHANCED AGILITY
In a data-driven enterprise, the ability to move and provision data rapidly is a key to agile business. Decoupling strategic application data from rapidly commoditizing physical infrastructure is the key to keeping up with constantly growing demands for copies of application data and ensuring faster time to market. Actifio Enterprise delivers solutions for business agility that put data where and when you need it, without taking weeks to provision it and without proliferating expensive infrastructure and storage to support copies of it.
Use cases include provisioning data for development and test data management, feeding data into business insights and analytics processes, and supporting data migrations between diverse infrastructure.
SOLUTIONS FOR CLOUD MOBILITY
Moving your apps into the cloud won’t do much good if the data that powers them is tied to a 20th century data center. Actifio Enterprise delivers solutions for cloud data mobility that enable you to leverage your data in whatever distributed computing environment makes sense. Actifio is your on-ramp to cloud-based systems, ensuring your data follows your applications wherever they live and is available wherever you need it.
Use cases include data vaulting, full recovery in the cloud, and migration of data across public, private, and hybrid cloud-based systems.
