New CRN Cloud 100 Includes Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization Software

WALTHAM, Mass. – February 26, 2019 — Actifio, the world’s leading enterprise Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) software provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Actifio one of “The 20 Coolest Cloud Software Vendors” on its newly published 2019 Cloud 100 list.

According to CRN, “The 2019 installment of CRN’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors highlights the best of the best in cloud infrastructure, security, software, platforms, and storage.”  

The list features emerging and established cloud vendors across five categories in order to help solution providers easily identify potential partners, including: cloud infrastructure, security, software, platforms and storage.

In contrast to the vendors with backup & recovery roots that populate CRN’s list of 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors, Actifio enables near-instant access to massive volumes of application-specific data without the need for additional hardware investments. On February 11, Actifio launched Actifio GO, the industry’s first multi-cloud copy data management SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platform, making it faster and simpler to backup and restore, accelerate DevOps and analytics initiatives and meet regulatory and compliance requirements for applications on premises and in multi-cloud environments.

“Cloud services are a vital part of the IT channel and have solution providers clamoring for companies who will help them grow and evolve their cloud business,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Companies supports channel partners by identifying top companies who can deliver a wide-range of innovative cloud-based technologies and services. We congratulate all the companies on our 2019 list for establishing themselves as leaders in this crucial technology area.”

“We are honored to be recognized by CRN as one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Software Vendors among the CRN 2019 Cloud 100,” said Ash Ashutosh, Co-Founder and CEO of Actifio. “As we continue to expand our industry-leading Actifio Sky software portfolio and deliver operational simplicity and proven business value in multi-cloud environments, it is clear that 2019 is shaping up to be a landmark year for Actifio. We thank CRN for this prestigious honor, and our partners for their role in helping us expand this technology across thousands of enteprises.”
