What does Actifio do?
Actifio is radically simple Copy Data Virtualization. Our system decouples data from infrastructure, enabling dramatic improvements in business resiliency, agility, and access to the cloud. Actifio replaces siloed data management applications, like backup, disaster recovery, and dev & test data management with a radically simple, application-centric, SLA-driven system. Our Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology lets customers capture data from production applications, manage it more economically, in the most efficient way possible, and use virtual or physical copies of the data whenever and wherever they need them.
Actifio Copy Data Storage (CDS) is based on patented Virtual Data Pipeline™?(VDP) technology, delivering dramatically enhanced business availability by eliminating backup and restore windows and creating virtual point-in-time copies of data on-demand, for use by any business application. By integrating data deduplication, network, and processor utilization optimization, Actifio’s VDP provides the most efficient way to manage data growth while solving your biggest IT challenges around information protection and availability.
The Virtual Data Pipeline
The heart of the Actifio solution is the Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) technology. Its function is to virtualize production data copy management, eliminating redundancies and re-purposing the unique data for multiple data management applications. THE VDP is a distributed object file system, virtualizing the core primitives of data management—copy, store, move and restore—to enable instant creation of virtual
