Actifio Named One of “25 New IT Companies to Watch” by Network World

Waltham, MA, November 03, 2010 --( Actifio’s Dynamic Data Management Virtualization Solution Eliminates Silos of Point Tools to Unify Data Protection, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Into a Single Offering.

Actifio™, the emerging leader in Data Management Virtualization (DMV), today announced that IDG's Network World magazine has recognized Actifio as one of its "25 New IT Companies to Watch" for 2010. In choosing the top 25 new IT companies, Network World focused on innovative startups that "are attempting to fuel the shift from static IT infrastructures to virtualized data centers and cloud networks,” calling them "the next generation of IT vendors."

Network World noted that Actifio is simplifying disaster recovery and data protection with software that combines storage virtualization with several other capabilities to automate the copy, store, move and restore operations, while helping IT deliver a service catalog with defined SLAs. Actifio's suite of data management applications, introduced in August 2010, offer radical simplicity, unprecedented agility, and lower cost. The suite includes Actifio™ DP, for data protection; Actifio™ DR, for disaster recovery; and Actifio™ BC, for business continuity. All are built on Actifio’s VirtualData Pipeline™ (VDP) technology, which transforms the infrastructure from individual silos of point tools to a virtualized solution managing data across the entire lifecycle.

Commenting on a new trend that Actifio exemplifies, the publication said, "Blending technologies together in unique ways to solve multiple problems at once may be a good approach for today's complicated IT world."

“Until now, organizations have had to implement a complex, expensive infrastructure consisting of multiple tools to address each point of the data lifecycle," said Ash Ashutosh, president and CEO, Actifio. "Industry adoption of server virtualization, backup-to-disk, and commodity storage have opened the door for innovation leading to radical simplification of data management. Actifio has de-coupled data management from the data storage infrastructure, and, similar to the server virtualization paradigm, the result is a solution offering not only simplicity, but also flexibility and dramatically lower operational expenses."
