Data virtualisation company, Actifio, has today announced an expansion of its product portfolio that will extend the functionality of its copy data solution, making a virtual instance of the company's Virtual Data Pipeline technology available wherever application data may reside, from the data centre core to the public cloud. The new product will be the first in a new family called ‘Actifio Sky'.

Actifio Sky is built entirely on the foundation of the company's Virtual Data Pipeline technology, protected by an expanding portfolio of 36 in-process or approved patents.

Ash Ashutosh, Actifio founder and CEO said: "Actifio Sky is already giving our enterprise customers access to data sets they'd never been able to gather, analyse, and protect before, and simplifying the customer deployment model of our cloud service provider partners."

"Enabling Actifio's technology to run on a virtual appliance has been a key milestone in our platform vision right from the start. With the launch of this platform extension, we're demonstrating the depth and breadth of our underlying technology, and taking an important step toward letting an even broader range of customers across every geography, vertical, and market segment tap the power of Actifio's copy data virtualisation model in whatever form makes the most sense for them.

"As a fully integrated appliance leveraging bundled, existing, or third-party storage; as a virtual appliance which can be deployed readily into the edge or the cloud; or as a cloud-based platform-as-a-service [PaaS] available on demand and accessible through any device. We call this vision ‘Actifio Anywhere,' and it points to the exciting range of Actifio products and services customers will see us introduce to the market over the coming months and years."

Actifio Sky will be offered first in a ROBO Edition for Remote/Branch Offices (ROBOs,) and a cloud deployment option for businesses.

Built on the core VDP technology, Actifio Sky's capabilities now include: easy download and deploy with a consumer-grade UI delivering an intuitive, point-and-click data management delivering faster time to productivity; application-centric, SLA-based management for powerful remote data protection and disaster recovery for applications; rapid recovery from remote site failure, centrally, or into the cloud; the ability to vault data directly to public cloud storage services including Amazon Web Services and patented dedup-Async Replication for network-optimised data replication and space efficiency through direct-to-dedup storage.
