Actifio is the Best Solution VMware Backup Software

“Actifio targets the modern data-center and cloud environments. They clearly beat any of the competition!”

Gartner Peer Insight Customer Review – Large US University

Actifio provides the most comprehensive solution for data protection and recovery of VMware VMs and application data – whether it’s on-premises, in public cloud, or in VMware Cloud (VMC)

Common Challenges

Instant Recovery Not Scalable

Instant recovery from deduplicated backups limits recoveries to just a few VMs. Can not recover 100s of VMs at scale

No Push-Button DR Orchestration

Lack of orchestration to recover 100s / 1000s of VMware VMs leads to manual labor, complexity and large RTO

VM Stun Issues

VMware VMs with databases and high change rates suffer VM stun issues and  causes application downtime

Complex Hybrid Cloud Recovery

Recovering On-Premises VMware VMs in the public cloud is complex when using native cloud tools and labor intensive with large RTO

High TCO for Hybrid Cloud Recovery

High compute and block storage costs to store and recover On-Premises VMware VMs in the public cloud

Actifio’s Solution for VMware Backup & Recovery

Scalable, Instant Recovery for 100s / 1000s of VMs on-premises or in the public cloud like AWS, Azure, Google, IBM using Actifio Sky software appliance
