Arise Virtual Solutions Shrinks Application Recovery Times to Minutes with Actifio Sky for Branch Office Data Management

Actifio®, the copy data virtualization company, today announced that Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., the leading global provider of virtual, work-at-home business process outsourcing (BPO) and crowdsourcing solutions, has deployed Actifio Sky™ to ensure data accessibility, and business resiliency across their distributed organization’s many locations. An existing customer of Actifio’s CDS solution within its main datacenter, Arise recently implemented Actifio Sky at several branch office data centers including Miramar, Florida and Edinburgh, Scotland for data consolidation and protection.

After replacing multiple local backup products in its offices with Actifio Sky, Arise is now able to fully restore application services for branch office data centers in less than 90 minutes. Actifio Sky captures Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SharePoint and other data in several virtual machines, deduplicates and backs up the data and efficiently replicates it back to the Actifio CDS system in the central Arise datacenter.

“Arise Virtual Solutions’ core innovation is in our scalable virtual workforce platform, and that drives the value we deliver to our customers,” said Arise CIO Martin Ingram. “To remain productive for our clients, we need IT services that are highly resilient and efficient, no matter where the IT infrastructure and data are located. Actifio Sky lets us extend our core Actifio capabilities to manage and protect the critical data for our customers across multiple locations from one central repository. This has helped significantly reduce our administration time, letting our team focus more of its time on service delivery and development.”

Announced in May, Actifio Sky is a new generation offering built on the company’s Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology that extends the power of copy data virtualization from the data center to edge of the enterprise and into the cloud. Actifio Sky offers a new level of deployment flexibility and range, enabling seamless data management wherever the enterprise data is located to improve data protection, governance and analytics. Today, Sky is offered first for Remote / Branch Offices (ROBOs) and for cloud deployments for businesses looking to shift enterprise workloads into the cloud. Together with Actifio’s CDS data center appliance, Actifio Sky eliminates barriers to data mobility between the edge to the core, enabling transformational data management velocity and scale across the enterprise.

“Actifio Sky demonstrates the strength of our underlying technology and brings it to a new audience of customers who want to tap the power of copy data virtualization in whatever form is most useful – whether that’s a fully-integrated hardware system, a virtual appliance or a cloud-based service that’s available on demand and accessible through any device,” said Actifio founder and CEO Ash Ashutosh. “This vision is becoming reality through companies like Arise who are deploying Actifio flexibly to meet their business needs.”

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
