Actifio is a privately held information technology firm that specializes in copy data virtualization for making information technology infrastructure more efficient by reducing unnecessary duplication of data.
Actifio virtualizes the data that’s the lifeblood of businesses in more than 30 countries around the world. Its Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology enables businesses to manage, access, and protect their data faster, more efficiently, and more simply by decoupling data from physical storage, much the same way a hypervisor decouples compute from physical servers.
Actifio was founded in Jul 1, 2009 by Ash Ashutosh. The company is based in Waltham, Massachusetts with additional offices in London, U.K, Haag, NL & Hyderabad, India.
Actifio is the world’s leading Enterprise Data-as-a-Service platform. It enables thousands of companies around the world deliver their data just as they deliver their applications and infrastructure… as a service available instantly, anywhere.
Actifio helps over 3500 global enterprise customers and service provider partners in more than 37 countries around the world virtualize their data, just as they virtualized their applications and infrastructure. Some of it's customers include VMWare, Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Google, Intel, AWS, Cisco, & RedHat among others.
Actifio replaces siloed data management applications with a radically simple, application-centric, SLA-driven approach that lets customers capture data from production applications, manage it more economically, and use it when and where they need. The result is enterprise data available for any use, anytime, anywhere, for less.
Actifio is backed by to-tier investors including North Bridge Venture Partners and Greylock Partners, Advanced Technology Ventures (ATV), Andreessen Horowitz, & Tiger Global Management among others. Actifio was valued at a $1.3B during it's "Series F" funding of a $100M in Aug 7, 2018.
Actifio developed the Big Database Solution to meet the needs of today’s database administrators, developers, application owners, and DevOps teams. The solution, built on IBM Storage, enables instant creation of virtual database clones while using virtually no additional storage capacity. These copies can be used to accelerate application development or for instant rollback/recovery from an unexpected outage.
