Actifio's patented Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) technology turns data silos into data pipelines, with the help of automation from on-site to any cloud for secure, fast access for business use.

FREMONT, CA: Utilizing data as a competitive advantage was already a top priority for CEOs everywhere, but the coronavirus pandemic has raised the bar by making immediate access to vast amount of data a critical path to business success. Actifio, the pioneer of multi-cloud copy data management software, has designed and polished its platform for precisely this kind of urgent need.

Ash Ashutosh, Actifio CEO and Co-Founder, stated, "We used to worry about the digital divide -- those who have access to the internet and those who don't. Today, it's the data divide -- the divide between organizations that know how to leverage and exploit their data and accelerate the business, and those that don't. This year, that divide has had a major effect. Data is the new infrastructure, and more and more of our customers are on the right side of the digital divide."

This is reinforced by IDC analyst Archana Venkatraman's newly published guest blog, sponsored by Actifio and titled, "Innovate with Data in the Next Normal: Leveraging cloud data management platforms for data protection, availability, and re-use. With IDC estimating the amount of data created over the next three years to exceed the amount created over the last 30 years, "Maximizing the value of data is a foundational aspect of achieving a data-driven organization," the analyst stated. "Today, there is a laser-sharp focus on value and cost optimization. As a result, enterprises need to pivot from traditional backup environments that are seen as necessary, single-use, static business procedures to a new paradigm of backup as a dynamic data hub that can provide any data, any number of times, for any business purpose – DevOps, analytics, testing, simulation, machine learning, or app development."
