Boston, April 19, 2016 – Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced its partnership with Green Leaf Consulting Group, a specialty IT solutions, services and staffing firm based in Philadelphia. Green Leaf is using the Actifio platform to help deliver application development and management consulting projects more quickly. Actifio Copy Data Virtualization capabilities help Green Leaf accelerate testing and release cycles, by providing test teams rapid access to high-quality production data, helping to improve code quality earlier.
Green Leaf consults on IT projects and integrates systems for its Philadelphia-area customers, with a focus on .NET and mobile application development, and business intelligence (BI). Its mission is to help companies turn raw data into actionable insights in order to drive improved performance. Green Leaf’s nimble team of experts embed themselves into a client’s project, helping them manage and run the entire process, and at a level that is faster, cheaper, and more individualized than bigger systems integrators are able to offer.
Green Leaf’s work for customers requires the creation of development and testing environments in which application data is needed. In traditional development processes, enterprises are slowed by having to provision redundant physical copies, often pulled from backups or from already burdened production storage systems, chewing up additional physical infrastructure resources. Because of this, enterprise development organizations are often forced to use old or incomplete portions of databases, leading to quality problems, often discovered late in development processes – ultimately contributing to delayed releases.
Now with Actifio Copy Data Virtualization, Green Leaf is able to automate and speed up the provisioning of full, secured, virtual copies of production data, eliminating redundant physical data copies. This dramatically streamlines their development team’s workflows and improves time to market for projects. After deployment of new or modernized applications, Green Leaf frequently manages their production operations. In that role, Green Leaf uses Actifio for efficient protection of that same application data, delivering simplifying backups and providing verifiable disaster recovery processes.
“Data is the most vital asset any business has available to it,” said Steve Cammarota, Principal at Green Leaf Consulting Group. “Helping our customers manage and use that data in responsive, modern applications that help them compete better is what Green Leaf is all about, and Actifio’s class-leading data virtualization means that we can now do that better than ever before. It doesn’t just speed up the application development process, it also cuts infrastructure costs and complexity, effectively giving our clients double the value.”
Jim Sullivan, President of Actifio, said, “The Green Leaf team recognizes the transformative power copy data virtualization can have for its services and its customers, both in Dev and Ops. Green Leaf’s collaborative, progressive and streamlined approach to delivering projects makes them a strategic asset to their clients and valuable partner for Actifio.”
Actifio virtualizes the data that’s the lifeblood of businesses in more than 30 countries around the world. Its Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology enables businesses to protect, access, and move their data faster, more efficiently, and more simply by decoupling data from physical storage, much the same way a hypervisor decouples compute from physical servers. For enterprise-class backup modernization, self-serve instant data access, or service provider business transformation, Actifio is the first and only choice for radically simple copy data virtualization.
