Actifio Named SearchDataBackup Product of the Year Finalist

Actifio Sky on shortlist for data backup and recovery software category

Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, has been included as a finalist for SearchDataBackup’s 2015 Products of the Year award. Actifio Sky, a new virtual appliance version of the company’s physical CDS copy data management appliance, was shortlisted for the data backup and recovery software category.

Actifio virtualizes the data that’s the lifeblood of businesses in more than 30 countries around the world. The company’s core intellectual property is its revolutionary Virtual Data Pipeline™ (VDP) technology, a suite of capabilities protected by a total of 65 approved or pending patents that enable businesses to manage, access, and protect 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.

Actifio was first to identify the “copy data” problem, which analyst firm IDC estimated as a $50 billion problem worldwide in a recent report, and the first to address the proliferation of physical storage in much the same way hypervisors curtailed the proliferation of physical servers. While today multiple technologies treat the “symptoms” of excess copy data, only one cures the “disease” across the full range of enterprise applications, the full lifecycle of application data, all forms of enterprise storage from the data center to the cloud, and all major use cases specific to the enterprise. That solution is Actifio.

The latest version of Actifio Sky runs as a virtual machine in VMware, Hyper-V, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments. It offers incremental forever backup for databases, file systems, VMs and physical servers; recovery-in-place; test/dev functionality; and connectivity to AWS and other cloud providers.

Products that qualify for the data backup and disaster recovery (DR) software category include backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, DR, snapshot and replication, electronic vaulting and archiving software. The complete list of 2015 data backup and recovery software finalists have been highlighted on  Winners of the award will appear in print in the February issue of Storage Magazine, and online on SearchDataBackup in mid-February.
