What is Copy Data Virtualization?
Your legacy storage infrastructure is keeping you from realizing the promise of a modern, data-driven enterprise.
When asked about their most pressing priorities, CIO’s usually list improving the resiliency of their business, increasing its agility, and moving toward a more cloud-based, efficient, and scalable technology model. Legacy application architectures, which bind application data to particular infrastructure, make all three of these priorities harder to achieve than they should be.
Server virtualization freed massive unused capacity in computing. Today data virtualization is freeing more business’s data from its legacy physical infrastructure.
It’s time to apply the same virtualization approach to data that changed everything with servers. We all know the volume of data is growing at a staggering pace. And the vast majority of the data we’re storing are excess copies of production, created by disparate data protection and availability tools like backup, DR, dev & testing, and analytics.
How Does Actifio Deliver Copy Data Virtualization?
Actifio replaces siloed data management applications with an application-centric, SLA-driven approach.
At the highest level, Actifio lets you do 3 things:
Production data is captured non-disruptively and in its native form, to make it instantly available when needed. A single physical copy – a “golden master,” kept current through an “incremental forever” model – is used to spawn unlimited virtual copies, across any use case where a copy of production data is required.
Copy Data Virtualization frees increasingly strategic data from increasingly commoditized infrastructure, replacing the many siloed systems you’re using today to protect and access copies of the same production data. It replaces all the software licensing and capital intensive hardware tied up in Backup, Snapshot, Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity, Dev & Test, Compliance, Analytics, and other systems with a single, radically simple approach that does one thing: Make whatever data, from whenever it was created, available wherever you need it.
