GLOBAL DATA MOBILITY
Finally, your data can experience the multi-cloud life.
“Our vision is to become a private cloud provider and create more software features for our customers in less time. Actifio is instrumental in accelerating this strategy. The solution is simpler, and we are less dependent on storage infrastructure..”
ANDRE LÜNSMANN – HEAD OF PRODUCTION AND DATABASE
Actifio securely moves data from on-premises or cloud to any other cloud, and back again.
Actifio’s powerful combination of data replication techniques – both bandwidth- and time-optimized as well as direct-to-object vaulting – allow a broad range of data mobility SLAs to be configured.
With native integration in all hyperscale clouds – AWS, Azure, GCP, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, VMware Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud – data can move effortlessly from on-premises data centers to cloud, or cloud-to-cloud.
And with VMware workloads, data can be moved directly to any S3 compatible object storage target, bypassing the need for compute in the cloud.
“Part of what we get from our Actifio investment is the flexibility to change. We’ve had problems with some cloud providers and endured long service outages. With Actifio our business continuity plan is solid. We can easily test it. And we can dynamically move workloads off-site and, if needed, pull them back.”
Mark Moseley – Vice President of IT
Data mobility often means a tradeoff between bandwidth and time.
Sometimes, application data needs to move from point A to point B in the shortest period of time. Other times the timing isn’t as critical, but bandwidth consumption is an issue – either from a cost or availability standpoint. Still others, the use case is data vaulting, in which case the objective is to move data to the lowest cost destination for long-term retention.
In the past, enterprises facing these choices were forced to use multiple products to address different service levels. That meant multiple – and potentially conflicting — operational models, product support, license and maintenance costs, and even personnel.

HOW Actifio HELPS + OUTCOMES
Flexible data movement aligned to application SLAs.
Actifio puts the application at the center of the universe, with all policies and instrumentation aligned to the needs of the app and underlying data.
Actifio’s SLA policy engine designates the type of replication, frequency of data movement, and the target cloud and/or data center.
These policies are created generically and may be applied to any application. Over time, as application requirements change, SLAs can be updated or changed entirely.
