BOSTON, Jan. 17, 2018 — Actifio, the Data-as-a-Service company, today announced Sky 8.0 OnVault’s availability to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Actifio Sky 8.0 OnVault can deliver cost savings, improved protection, and business acceleration to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
“A hybrid cloud strategy combines the computing control brought by a private cloud, with the flexibility achieved by the public cloud, and is going to be increasingly crucial for businesses to adopt moving into 2018,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO of Actifio. “Sky 8.0 OnVault for VMware Cloud on AWS marks an extension of our ongoing collaboration with VMware to provide customers with enhanced business solutions and drive accelerated digital transformation through hybrid cloud environments.”
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere® environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.
“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. “Solutions such as Sky 8.0 OnVault enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as Actifio to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
