BOSTON, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- By Mike Troiano, CMO, Actifio.
Are you trapped in your own infrastructure? It's an odd thing to say, but it's a common refrain here at Actifio. We see customers every week who want to take better advantage of remote data centers or hybrid cloud but can't because of the sheer complexity of their primary data center. The infrastructure they've invested millions in prevents them from putting their data where they want it.
The problem is the need to purchase and manage all of the enterprise infrastructure and tools for one site, then do the same in cloud and other remote data center locations. It's not uncommon to have five different software tools to maintain business continuity (array snapshots for rapid recovery, backup software and appliances for longer term retention disk and tape, replication, deduplication, compression...etc.). Not only is this model not economically scalable, but in many cases, it won't even work as intended! Meanwhile, this complexity occurs in the context of a business environment where the enterprise CIO is being challenged to make the business more agile by accelerating application development, while 'doing more with less' in the operations budget.
That's why Actifio and Verizon are working together to bring advanced copy data virtualization capabilities to Verizon's global customer base. By joining forces with Actifio, Verizon can now help customers who want to deploy Actifio at their own premises. This provides the benefits of an enterprise-class copy data virtualization that efficiently and securely replicates the production data from heterogeneous systems to a single Actifio-instance from within a Verizon data center. The operations team gets radically simple data protection, efficient data replication and high-performance business continuity, and Dev gets instant access to high-fidelity test data when and where they need it.
Verizon offers Cloud Backup, a simple, reliable solution to protect and restore cloud workloads. Now Verizon customers with hybrid IT environments can get data mobility, resiliency and flexibility, with the Actifio Copy Data Virtualization solution.
Focus on your business, not your infrastructure.
Mark Beaumont, manager, Cloud Storage Product Management, Verizon Enterprise Solutions put it best:
"The Actifio Copy Data Virtualization solution can help our customers reduce the physical footprint of data storage; reduce the bandwidth needed to replicate data for disaster-recovery, cloud or data center migrations; and eliminate multiple point tools. Besides helping to improve operations and putting application data where it's needed, the data can be instantly accessible for software development, testing, and analytics, enabling companies to be faster and more agile."
