Actifio OnVault Helps Enterprise Customers Move Faster to Amazon Web Services

OnVault solution integrates long-term data retention with instant access to AWS for today's data-driven digital enterprises

BOSTON, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced availability of OnVault on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as part of its hybrid cloud data management solution. Actifio enables enterprise customers to move faster to Amazon AWS by extending legacy data center applications and infrastructure, enabling instant access even to archived data for analytics and business intelligence.

The term "vault" comes from the practice of locking away tape media literally in a physical vault for compliance requirements, expecting never to be used again. More recently, as the need to recover data became a regulatory requirement, expensive deduplication disk devices were used to store data for the long term. Both of these practices result in a graveyard of data that is complex to manage, rarely useable, locked into vendor's proprietary formats and has become a significant cost of doing business.

Built on Actifio's data virtualization technology, OnVault on AWS combines the low-cost infrastructure of cloud-based, long-term data retention and delivers instant application-native data access to drive business acceleration with business intelligence, analytics, compliance and data warehousing tools. Features include:

  • Instant testability and recovery of archived data
  • Elimination of manual labor, time-consuming processes and cost of managing tapes
  • Automatic expiry policies aligned with regulatory requirements across many verticals
  • Leveraging of archived data to run analytics on Amazon RedShift without the need for another data migration or redundant data copy

"As more of our customers transition their data archives to the cloud, we want to be able to grant them access to that data quickly - anytime, anywhere," said Sabina Joseph, Head of Global Storage Partnerships & Alliances, Amazon Web Services. "Actifio provides large-scale data virtualization and management tools, and with the new OnVault solution on AWS, our customers can now harness the power of their archived data and use it to help drive further business goals and innovations."

OnVault allows businesses to have a single data management solution to handle the entire lifecycle of data generated by business applications, social media, machine logs, and Internet of Things (IoT), among other sources, from creation, protection, analysis, and compliance to eventual deletion, both on-premises or on the AWS Cloud.

"Our IT staff has a wide range of responsibilities, so we appreciate how easily Actifio's OnVault feature handles our local backup and how simple Actifio makes using AWS for disaster recovery," said Darryl Anunson, IT Manager, pc/nametag. "In less than 30 minutes we recovered from an outage that would have lasted three or four hours with our old system. Actifio's infrastructure-agnostic technology paid for itself in that one day and we are excited to continue leveraging the power of Actifio on AWS."

"Traditional data archival solutions were built for the era of physical businesses. Today's digital enterprises are data-driven and need instant access to data at every stage of its lifecycle," said Ash Ashutosh, Co-founder and CEO of Actifio. "With the power of OnVault on AWS, our enterprise customers will be able to leverage their investment in data archive on the AWS cloud and unlock business value by re-using that data for business intelligence and analytics on AWS."

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
