ACHIEVING BUSINESS AGILITY
One of the early workloads to move to the cloud was development, as application developers enjoyed the ability to rapidly setup and teardown environments to build and test their code. In most cases, these environments were lightweight, with small data payloads. Now, CSPs are recognizing the opportunity to serve a broader-scale development environment in the cloud, catering to larger data sets and enterprise-grade applications and databases.
With Actifio Synergy, CSPs have access to a variety of data agility oriented services, including:
With bandwidth optimized data movement courtesy of Actifio’s patented Dedup Async Replication, CSPs can board and manage large-scale application environments without the time and cost penalties from traditional techniques.
KEY FEATURES FOR DATA AGILITY SERVICES
Beyond the core value of the Actifio Virtual Data Pipeline technology, there are a number of key features that enable Cloud Service Providers to deliver Data Agility services.
BUSINESS AGILITY USE CASES
DEV / TEST DATA MANAGEMENT AS A SERVICE
Actifio can provide virtual copies of data to development and testing teams in minutes and can maintain the sync between those copies of the database and whatever is in production without having an impact on those production systems. Leveraging Actifio to offer Dev/Test Data Management-as-a-Service, CSPs enable their customers to deliver better apps, faster, and consume less infrastructure resources while doing so.
WAREHOUSING / ANALYTICS AS A SERVICE
Using the golden copy of a customer’s data in the Actifio system, CSPs can make virtual copies of the data available in minutes to be used directly in a data warehouse or in combination with third party analytics tools. By leveraging such integrations of third party analysis tools with the data managed by Actifio, CSPs can offer specific analytics and data insight services on demand in their cloud.
