Replacing siloed data management applications with a radically simple, application-centric, SLA-driven approach, Actificio that lets customers:
Actifio products are based on the patented Virtual Data Pipeline™ (VDP™) technology. This creates virtual point-in-time copies of data on-demand, for use by any business application. Actifio’s VDP is a distributed object file system, virtualizing the core primitives of data management. This enables instant creation of virtual copies of point-in-time data from the collection of unique blocks of data.
Taking advantage of the VDP starts with creating a Service Level Agreement (SLA) to drive the lifecycle of your application data.
The SLA you create in Actifio determines:
Once you have created an SLA you will be able to bind it to any application, physical, or virtual machine. You can do this using a simple point-and-click interface to select from among those that appear automatically in the Actifio interface.
Once data has been captured, it will be available for instant access to support a variety of use cases from data protection and business resiliency to app development and testing, analytics, archiving and more.
Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform is made up of a set of products that leverage the Actifio Virtual Data Pipeline.
Actifio CDS ™ is Actifio’s Enterprise-class product, designed for large-scale deployments in heterogeneous data center environments.
Actifio Sky™ is a software-only data virtualization platform for the distributed enterprise that makes a virtual instance of Actifio’s patented Virtual Data Pipeline™ (VDP) available wherever application data resides.
When combined with Actifio CDS in the data center, Actifio Sky for ROBO delivers WAN- and storage-efficient data protection for remote offices, eliminating barriers to data mobility from the edge to the core.
VDP is accessed by the Foresight API, which creates a gateway to programmatic management and extension.
Finally, Actifio is continually developing a broad range of additional business software services that extend the power and versatility of both Actifio CDS and Actifio Sky. The most recent of these is Actifio Resiliency Director™. This orchestrates compute, network, and data at an enterprise disaster recovery site or a cloud service provider and validates the results to provide a complete solution for non-disruptive, automated recovery and test.
