Copy data management solutions provider Actifio has introduced a new addition to its Protection and Availability Storage (PAS) portfolio. The PAS 20T is a single, virtualized solution for data protection, disaster recovery, business continuity, test & development, or any application that creates copies of production data.
PAS 20T extends Actifio’s line of copy data management offerings, enabling SMBs to manage application data with a single service level agreement (SLA) and recover it instantly for any application (virtual or physical) from any point-in-time, at any location.
PAS 20T is a single, complete system, with integrated storage capacity designed to protect and recover up to 20TB of application data.
PAS 20T is an industry-first copy data management solution built to protect both physical and virtual servers running Linux and Windows, including object level recovery for Microsoft File Server, SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint. The system is ideal for VMware environments, directly integrating through the VMware vStorage API to virtualize the common data management functions into a single storage platform.
“Building on the successful extension of the PAS platform through the 5.0 release, we wanted to drive down the complexity and cost of copy data management for smaller VMware environments,” explains Actifio CEO Ash Ashutosh in a press release submitted to Channelpro-SMB. “The cost and complexity of storage and data management tools have become major barriers for SMBs. By ushering virtualization technology into data management, Actifio is delivering the benefits users have come to expect from virtualization … at 90 percent lower costs.”
Benefits of PAS 20T include:
- Application-centric SLA-based management, enabling SMBs to define SLAs in terms data capture frequency and retention time.
- Heterogeneous, network-optimized replication of data for disaster recovery at more than 95 percent lower bandwidth.
- Instant data availability from any point in time with zero backup and restore windows.
- Instant virtual copies of data for test and development with no additional storage footprint.
The PAS 20T is available immediately in limited quantities. General availability is scheduled for Q4 2012.
