NSW Ambulance Service to Deploy Actifio to Modernise Data Management Systems, Increase Overall Efficiency of Data Centre Operations
Sydney, Australia – 16 September 2014 – Actifio, the global leader in copy data virtualisation, today announced NSW Ambulance Service, which provides health-related transport services to more than 7 million people across the state, has deployed Actifio to modernise its data management systems and increase the overall efficiency of its data centre operations.
NSW Ambulance Service joins a growing list of companies who are deploying Actifio solutions to enable more efficient IT operations while eliminating legacy data management tools. Actifio has helped organisations of all sizes and in all regions of the world to unlock the potential business impact of virtual computing power and virtual networking.
“Australia and New Zealand’s IT market is considered among the strongest in the world for virtualisation and we’re excited to be apart of this accelerating trend as leading organisations increase their adoption of our copy data virtualisation platform,” said Budd Ilic, ANZ Country Manager, Actifio.
The NSW Ambulance Service turned to Actifio as a solution for improved management of the influx of data resulting from its growing operations. Meeting the various storage and retention requirements of different data sets required a solution that could bring greater efficiency to its backup and disaster recovery systems and offer increased agility for new testing environments.
“We were at a point where our backups barely had time to finish before another was set to begin,” said Dushan Tatic, Manager, TSU System Admin, NSW Ambulance Service. “Actifio has significantly reduced the time spent on backups, not only freeing up resources and allowing us to minimise project and development costs but also improving business continuity and the day-to-day access of data application testing.”
Representatives from NSW Ambulance Service and many others will share more of the successes achieved thus far with Actifio solutions at Actifio’s annual Copy Data Forum in Sydney. They will join other local Actifio customers, including leading independent corporate law firm Gilbert + Tobin and Henry Davis York, one of the country’s oldest and most successful commercial law firms. The event will provide businesses with a better understanding of how to recognise and manage copy data and drive results.
“In a little over six months, we’ve been able to realise the dramatic cost savings and improved operational efficiency that comes with effectively managing our copy data,” said Mitch Owens, Manager, Infrastructure & Applications , Gilbert + Tobin. “The Copy Data Forum provides the perfect platform to not only share our successes but also continue to explore how to further streamline our operations by eliminating individual data silos and transforming our business operations.”
Actifio’s annual Copy Data Forum will be held in Sydney’s L’Aqua on Wednesday, 17 September 2014. Jim Sullivan, President of Actifio, will deliver the keynote address at the Forum. Leading industry commentator and journalist Brad Howarth will provide an in-depth industry perspective on the opportunities of transitioning to cloud and serve as moderator to the customer panel.
