Home > Stott Hoare partners with Actifio

On 2 July 2012, Stott Hoare became a partner with Actifio, a world leader in virtualised copy data management.

Based in Massachusetts USA, Actifio pioneered the first storage system optimised for managing copies of production data, eliminating redundant silos of IT infrastructure and data management applications.

Actifio has earned tremendous industry-wide acclaim, and was recently chosen as one of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies for 2012.

Stott Hoare and Actifio got their relationship off the mark quickly by mounting a joint presence at the VMware Solutions Symposium, an interactive roadshow featuring the very latest virtualisation and cloud computing solutions, in Perth on 12 July 2012.

“Stott Hoare and Actifio are a great fit that will offer real benefits for our clients,” said Stott Hoare Managing Director, Jim Loader.

Actifio is redefining VMware Data Management, with a single solution for Backup, Recovery, Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity and Rapid Application Development.

“The storage explosion is one of today’s most pressing IT issues," said Jim Loader.

"However, much of the dramatic growth in data is being caused by ‘copy data’ generated by business systems for backup, snapshot, disaster recovery, business continuity, test and development, analytics, information sharing, even compliance.

"Each of these vertically integrated application infrastructures basically independently perform the same four operations:
Copy, Store, Move, and Restore.

"This results in an average of 13 – to an amazing 120 excess duplicate copies of data – and massive increases in required storage footprints, bandwidth requirements, backup windows, labor intensity, and complexity.

"In contrast, Actifio offers radically simple copy data management," said Jim.

Actifio’s Protection and Availability Storage (PAS) platform is the industry’s first solution optimised for managing copies of production data, resulting in the elimination of redundant silos of IT infrastructure and data management applications.

Its Virtualised Data Protection (VDP) solution replaces siloed data protection applications, letting business recover anything, instantly – at up to 90 per cent less cost – and that’s a powerful economic message for IT organisations of all sizes.

Actifio solutions are deployed in physical, virtual or hybrid IT environments in enterprise IT organisations and in managed or cloud service provider infrastructure.

Actifio’s VDP technology makes it the only solution capable of effectively addressing data protection and availability requirements for demanding applications.
