Actifio is now part of Google Cloud. Read the full announcement.

“Using Actifio, we reduced the time it takes to provision and prepare copies of our ten key applications and full database sets. Now our testing and development teams get what they need in three days instead of seven. Soon, we expect to reach a one-day process with newly Automated Workflows and scripts. Actifio does it all with less storage and fewer steps in much less time.”


SAP Data Management.


SAP runs on traditional databases, including  Oracle, SQL, ASE (formerly Sybase), and DB2. Now, more enterprises are shifting to run SAP on in-memory SAP HANA databases.

Regardless of the chosen database, enterprises typically create many database copies for multiple use cases including  backup, remote vault, disaster recovery, test/dev, analytics, training, security patch testing and more.

Actifio software provides a scalable, enterprise-grade Copy Data Management (CDM) solution for SAP  databases..

Users can manage database copies efficiently and securely in any public cloud or on-premises using any storage.

Frequently Asked Questions.

SAP is commonly referred to as the ERP application which has traditionally run on major databases like Oracle, DB2, SQL, etc. SAP HANA is a new, in-memory database designed specifically to run SAP applications. SAP HANA provides improved performance since it stores the database in-memory, which is faster than databases like Oracle, DB2, SQL, etc. which are stored on disk.

Every enterprise creates multiple copies of their production databases.

DBAs dump backups to disk.

Backup Administrators backup these dumps to backup storage and replicate to a remote site for vaulting or DR purposes.

Test/Dev, DevOps, Analytics, Security, UAT users need copies of production databases for testing purposes.

All of the above-siloed copies lead to copy data explosion resulting in very high infrastructure costs & operational burden. With no automation to manage all these database copies, data provisioning for testers takes many weeks, stretching application test and release cycles.

Actifio’s Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) software platform solves this Copy Data Problem with its Copy Data Management (CDM) solution.

Actifio’s pricing model is very simple and easy to understand. It’s based on the amount of source data protected. For example: If an enterprise wants to use Actifio to protect 5 database instances, each with 10 TB source database size, the enterprise would need Actifio license for 50 TB of source data. Enterprises can use this license anywhere in private or public cloud.
