Hitachi Solutions Deploys Actifio's Enterprise Data-as-a-Service To Accelerate DevOps And Improve Business Resiliency For Enterprises

Partnership tames proliferation of enterprise data, reduces infrastructure and related system installation costs

BOSTON, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Actifio, the Enterprise Data-as-a-Service (EDaaS) company, today announced a partnership with Hitachi Solutions to allow customers to modernize their data protection and disaster recovery strategies cost effectively. With Actifio, Hitachi Solutions expands its solution offerings to efficiently protect data with Actifio CDS, the physical appliance product, and Actifio Sky, a virtual appliance product.

Actifio CDS and Actifio Sky reduces data volume by creating a single copy of data available for instant access and use, and frees application data from underlying infrastructure. This makes it possible for companies to access their data as a service and reduce the cost of system installation such as storage, which was previously increasing due to data inflation. Combining Actifio products with Hitachi Solutions' consulting services based on the construction of large-scale IT infrastructure and operations will reduce total infrastructure investment costs by 40 percent, according to Hitachi Solutions.

Background
In recent years, the emergence of hybrid clouds and advances in server virtualization has meant infrastructure environments are becoming more complicated and the operational burden of the systems management department has increased for most enterprises.

Opportunities to copy the same data in different environments is increasing, as organizations cautiously construct Disaster Recovery (DR) sites. They're creating development testing and analysis using DevOps, and developing efficient data replication. For this reason, the amount of data continues to multiply, which coincidingly increases the cost and causes issues for introducing new systems, such as investment in storage or licensing opportunities.

Features of Actifio solutions

1: Integrated management of copy data virtualization, reducing system installation cost
By only capturing the differences of managed data from the production environment and managing the virtual copy data with its own deduplication and data compression function, it reduces storage unsafe for backup while also reducing system installation cost.

2: Quickly build DR sites and DevOps environments at low cost
Maintaining the copy data in the virtual environment and eliminating the need to migrate to physical storage makes it possible to quickly transfer data, and develop DR suites and DevOps environments at low costs. Copy data used for development and testing can be provided quickly as masked data by linking with database marking tools.

3: Provide personalized consulting for businesses, and optimize large-scale IT infrastructure environments
Hitachi Solutions, which has a large-scale IT infrastructure construction and operational consulting, will conduct personalized consulting based on the business needs of each company. The companies will also support optimization of enterprise IT infrastructure environments in cooperation for cloud service solutions linked with Hitachi Storage's virtualization function and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

About the Future
Hitachi Solutions will take advantage of the experience of building a company's IT infrastructure and will work on implementing consulting and system construction. In the next three years, the company will aim for sales of 5 billion yen (almost 45 million dollars) including related solutions.
