Channel Partners can also tap the Actifio Marketplace to add white label cloud services to their product portfolios, without the time and capital expense required until now.

“We’ve seen great momentum in the ecosystem of service providers, enterprise end customers, and third party technology providers building on the Actifio platform,” said Actifio Founder and CEO, Ash Ashutosh. “Supporting our business is increasingly about supporting theirs, and our new Service Provider Marketplace is another step toward integrating our offerings to make it easy for more customers to find the right service, with the right partner, at the right price, no matter where they are or what they require.”

All Service Providers featured in the marketplace deliver enterprise-class data management services built on Actifio’s best-in-class Copy Data Virtualization technology. Most leverage Actifio’s full featured API to integrate copy data virtualization into their current on-boarding, operations, support, and/or billing systems, making the integration process for customers radically simple. Each also maintains a fully trained Professional Services and Operations team in place to guide customers through the process and deal with queries.

At launch there are over twenty-two providers available to choose from across North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Featured service providers include IBM, Sungard Availability Services, Verizon, Versutus, Datacom, Spectrum and more. For a more personalized approach, providers are searchable by geography, the type of service offered and Cloud capability.

Through Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform, MSPs are able to offer Backup/Recovery, Business Continuity, Test Data Management and IT Security services from their own facility or a customer’s premises. Actifio-based services can also be delivered from dedicated infrastructure and/or the public cloud.

Actifio virtualizes the data that’s the lifeblood of businesses in more than 30 countries around the world. Actifio’s Virtual Data Pipeline technology enables customers to protect, access, and move their data faster, more efficiently, and more simply by decoupling data from physical storage, similar to hypervisor technology decoupling compute from physical servers.
