ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RestorePoint, a leading Managed Service Provider specializing in Data Protection and Disaster Recovery, today announced the next phase in its strategic alliance with Actifio, the Data-as-a-Service company. RestorePoint's SKY in a BOX solution includes a cost-effective converged compute and storage appliance that ships to customers with the Actifio SKY Virtual Appliance and Actifio Global Manager (AGM) software installed and ready for use.
The new SKY in a BOX solution from RestorePoint is the first scalable solution staged and configured with Actifio software to support a variety of storage, compute and instant recovery requirements, and is fully backed by RestorePoint's world-class Advanced Engineering team. The SKY in a BOX solution is designed for easy, turn-key implementation with full install and deployment completed in half the time required by competitive offerings. RestorePoint also offers ongoing management and integrated Private Object Storage as optional value-added services for their customers.
A company that has already experienced the power of this solution under high-stakes circumstances is real estate investment trust Regency Centers, with their $5B acquisition of Equity One in 2017. Dale Johnston, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Regency Centers, explained, "When Regency Centers acquired Equity One, we were faced with merging the two organizations with more than a 50% increase in asset value, 100+ additional employees, and two different technology footprints. The merger integration took several months to plan, but the actual data migration was greatly simplified and accelerated by leveraging RestorePoint's SKY in a BOX solution. We were able to easily scale up and a tremendous amount of data in less than a week. The experience really validated the power and capability of this pivotal solution."
Abdul Altamimi, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at RestorePoint, shares, "Data consolidation is one of the most difficult challenges that companies struggle with. Our SKY in a BOX appliance, powered by Actifio's software, provides companies with a solution that can support complex data migration and consolidation across private, public and hybrid clouds and can be integrated with our Private Object Storage platform to reduce the cost of exponential data growth."
Ash Ashutosh, founder and CEO at Actifio, said, "The RestorePoint-Actifio partnership is one that has clearly proven its value over the years, and the SKY in a BOX solution is a truly innovative offering that pushes it to the next level. This is only the latest example of how RestorePoint packages Actifio's game-changing software with unparalleled Advanced Engineering, providing IT executives with both premium data capabilities and peace of mind."
