Actifio is one of Dataedge’s newest partner solutions bringing us the industry’s first PAS or Protection and Availability Storage system. PAS is a turnkey subsystem optimized for managing copies of production data, resulting in the elimination of redundant silos of IT infrastructure, and data management applications.
Actifio’s end to end data management platform provides agentless instant backup and instant restores, infinite incremental snapshot, vendor-independent block-level replication, with integrated deduplication, compression and WAN acceleration.
This solution provides license-free features. PAS is also supportive of physical, virtual and mainframe environments, as well as integrates with cloud solution.
The legacy data management approach has been to deploy complex, expensive infrastructure silos– built with point tools for protection, disaster recovery, business continuity, test & development, analytics, compliance or other applications– each making and managing redundant copies of data. Actifio Protection and Availability Storage subsystem PAS eliminates these silos with a radically simple, application-centric, service-driven solution that can deliver significant savings— up to 10X lower costs.
Below are three of the most popular reasons to choose Actifio:
1. Dramatically improve business agility with instant virtual copies
Actifio is a comprehensive data management solution that only stores a single, secondary copy of data in their Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) appliance and allows companies to instantly reuse this highly efficient virtual copy for multiple use cases: backup, snapshot, replicated offsite for BC/DR, test/dev, compliance/ analytics and more…
2. Defer capital expense by improving storage utilization
Unleash the full capability of your production storage device by reclaiming primary storage capacity currently used by snapshot, deduplication and replication processes freeing the capacity used by snapshot, deduplication, or replicated data. Actifio can offload these functions, which retain additional copies of duplicate data and store them within their Protection and Availability Storage subsystem. Users can lower the overall storage costs by more than 50%.
3. Optimize replication for disaster recovery and business continuity
DeDup Async™ technology eliminates movement of all duplicate data, driving down network bandwidth utilization by 70%. In addition, the integrated Storage Virtualization technology enables heterogeneous data replication further driving down the costs of storage per GB by up to 75%.
