For enterprise to accelerate digital transformation for application development, analytics, data protection, HA and compliance by leveraging public and private cloud
Actifio, Inc. unveiled the 8.0 version of its Sky Platform, designed to accelerate the pace of enterprise digital transformation with cloud native capabilities.
This release is the result of over two and a half years of research and collaboration with enterprises, partners and industry analysts.
Sky Platform 8.0 is a cloud-centric solution enabling enterprises to accelerate critical digital transformation initiatives for application development, analytics, data protection, HA and compliance by leveraging the agility and economics of public and private cloud solutions. With a single Sky Platform, enterprises are executing a crawl-walk-run IT transformation strategy and harnessing cloud solutions for appropriate workloads, including cloud-native applications, rather than an all-or-nothing, lift-and-shift 'cloud strategy.'
The new platform introduces five features, in addition to comprehensive updates across the board, that reinforce Actifio's place as the most mature platform on the market:
"We are extremely excited about Actifio 8.0 as it gives us the ability to natively write to our cost-effective Private Object Storage platform or leverage object storage in the cloud," said Abdul Altamimi, CTO, Atlanta-based RestorePoint, Inc. "Our clients can globally search for data regardless of where it is stored, easily mount the data in a virtual environment, and recover just what they need in a fraction of the time. Actifio 8.0 is built to tackle the challenges our clients face today, as well as ones they may likely face while moving and storing data in the hybrid cloud in the future."
In terms of performance, Altamimi continued: "We tried the new cloud object feature in our multi-tenant data center. Actifio's ability to replicate incremental forever to IBM Cleversafe Object Storage in our cloud with instant recovery got us interested right away. We recovered a 5TB SQL database in just over 3 minutes, compared to the several hours it typically takes. No block storage at all, and no networking bottlenecks. This is a game changer because it drastically reduces my TCO and delivers a great recovery SLA."
According to Phil Goodwin, IDC research director, "The data revolution is increasing the amount data stored by more than 2.5 EBs every day and this data is quickly becoming the world's most valuable resource. Actifio aims to work closely with customers to create and enrich a virtual data platform that meets the rising challenges of the modern data economy. IT organizations are looking for these types of solutions to make a faster digital transformation and use their own data in the cloud."
Henry Baltazar, research VP, storage, 451 Research, stated: "Actifio has established a track record of success with enterprises and service providers in backup and recovery by pioneering enterprise Data as a Service. In recent years they have extended that into a true data platform than can empower application development, database, analytics and other teams with access to the data they need as they help transform their organizations. Speed, agility and security are all critical to these use cases and the Actifio platform has the potential to capitalize on this expanding opportunity particularly as more workloads migrate to the cloud."
"Overpromising and under delivering is almost a hallmark of data protection and data management companies," said George Crump, lead analyst and founder, Storage Switzerland. "Actifio has separated itself from the pack with an eight year track record of technology innovation that has set a high bar in the protection and management of data. Now with their latest release, Actifio 8.0, they are well positioned to help their customers as they transition to cloud-first data management."
"A few years ago Actifio was the only visionary company building disruptive data management strategies, and now we see a range of vendors trying to deliver similar capabilities," said Jason Buffington, principal analyst, ESG. "With the announcement of 8.0, Actifio continues its innovation and leadership with their cloud-centric strategy to unleash the full power of their customer's data. By providing the ability to immediately recover and enable data access across a range of cloud providers, Actifio is raising the bar once again on the landscape of data management."
