Actifio™, the leader in Virtual Data Management (VDM), today announced that CEO, Ash Ashutosh will present at ESG’s Ahead of the Curve Virtualization Summit on April 14, 2011. The New England regional conference will be held in Waltham, MA and will provide a full day of in-depth technical virtualization keynote and breakout sessions for end-users looking to evolve their data management strategies.
Actifio’s CEO, Ash Ashutosh will participate on a panel discussion with other business leaders at 11:00 am. EDT to address attendees’ questions about key technologies impacting their virtualization rollouts and share emerging data management requirements for increasingly virtualized data centers. Mr. Ashutosh will address these topics and outline a strategy for attendees on how to transform multiple data management silos for data protection, disaster recovery, business continuity, analytics and test and development tools into a single virtualized operation. Actifio delivers next-generation data management for physical and virtualized environments as an application driven policy for efficient storage operations, accelerated data protection and recovery and copy management for test and development. Actifio™ Virtual Data Pipeline integrates data deduplication, compression, encryption and bandwidth optimization with storage virtualization, transforming individual silos of point tools into a comprehensive data management solution. The results are radical simplicity, unprecedented agility and up to an order of magnitude lower cost.
Translating business requirements is a 3-click process that includes choosing a business application, appropriate SLA, and virtual resources to deliver the SLA. Users now have zero-backup windows, instant restores, deduplicated backup, disaster recovery and a platform for all future data management applications – while driving down the total cost of ownership up to 90 percent.
“Traditional point tools for data management for protection, disaster recovery, analytics and test and development operations are typically managed as separate islands which re-introduce cost and complexity into customers’ virtual and physical environments,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. “The current way of handling the myriad of data management applications is to throw more expensive hardware, software and services at the problem - creating an endless cycle of management headaches and skyrocketing cost. What is needed is a disruptive innovation that brings the promise of virtual data management, much like VMware brought to server virtualization, to deliver dynamic virtualization solutions that slash the cost and complexity of managing data throughout its lifecycle.”
