The combination of Actifio technology and TCS’ global expertise in delivering IT transformation promises significant benefits to customers. As data-driven organizations modernize their legacy infrastructure-oriented data management strategies and implement hybrid and multi-cloud approaches, the first imperatives are gaining control of, and ensuring near-instant access to their data. The Actifio Sky software platform was designed from an application-centric standpoint to be infrastructure-agnostic, and to enable the acceleration of DevOps and analytics, to modernize data protection and improve security, compliance and governance.
“Helping companies accelerate their Business 4.0™ transformation is the cornerstone of TCS’ business model,” said Raman Venkatraman, Global Head, Alliances and Technology Unit, TCS. “At the foundation of this is the ability to manage, speed up and scale cloud-based data at an affordable cost. Actifio’s platform effectively achieves this vast, complex task, and we’re pleased to extend its expertise to even more global enterprises and industries.”
Actifio pioneered copy data management solutions to eliminate copy data sprawl and reduce storage costs, while delivering instant access to any point-in-time copy of data, for any applications, at any location. The Actifio Sky software platform is based on Actifio’s patented Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) technology. VDP combines data virtualization technology, which creates a single golden copy of application-centric data used for virtualized copies, with data pipelining technology that provides data mobility, transformation and point-in-time application recovery orchestration, at any location.
