Actifio Presents Award-Winning Copy Data Management Platform to Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012

Company Tames Root Cause of the Enterprise Storage Explosion with Revolutionary Protection and Availability Storage (PAS)

GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo, Orlando, FL., October 22, 2012 – Actifio™, the radically simple copy data management company, today announced its participation in Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012. Held October 21-25, 2012 in Orlando, FL, the event gathers CIOs and senior IT executives to re-imagine the potential of IT initiatives for enterprises.

As a Data Center and IT Operations sponsor exhibiting at booth #1133, Actifio will demonstrate new cost saving opportunities for companies looking to solve the strategic challenges associated with copy data management. The average company today has between five and 12 different systems that make copies of data including backup, snapshot, disaster recovery, business continuity, test and development, analytics, information sharing, and even compliance tools. The result is a complex and increasingly expensive infrastructure that creates an operational nightmare. Actifio’s Protection and Availability Storage (PAS) platform addresses this challenge with a totally new approach to managing copy data across the enterprise, essentially virtualizing multiple applications into a single data management appliance that can recover anything instantly, for up to 90 percent less than traditional solutions.

In May 2012, Gartner recognized Actifio by naming the company a “Cool Vendor in Storage Technologies.” Actifio believes this acknowledgement is a testament of its innovative storage capabilities provided by PAS.

“With companies around the world quickly adopting PAS to improve storage functionality and reduce data redundancy, Actifio is on track to become the fastest growing enterprise storage company from inception, ever,” said Ash Ashutosh, Actifo Founder & CEO.  “As one of the world’s most important gatherings of CIOs and senior IT executives, Gartner Symposium/ITxpo is an ideal venue to showcase the game-changing benefits that PAS can bring to the datacenter.”

To learn how copy data management can increase network utilization and save 90 percent of storage costs, and to learn more about Actifio, stop by Booth #1133 in the Data Center and IT Operations Area of the Exhibit Hall at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012.
