BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Actifio™, the radically simple copy data management company, today announced Netwave Corporation as the most recent service provider to offer next generation cloud services based on Actifio’s Protection and Availability Storage (PAS) platform.
Cloud service providers including NPG, Lighthouse Computer Services, NaviSite, Inc. (a Time Warner Cable Company), and now Netwave, are taking advantage of PAS to transform the economics of data management and offer broad public and private cloud data management services including backup, remote backup, and test and development. Actifio is demonstrating the benefits of its recently-released PAS 5.0 at HostingCon 2012 this week at Booth #212.
Netwave, the Central Ohio leader in IT consulting and distributed computing support, provides a focused approach to integrating technology to produce measurable business results. The firm specializes in virtualization solutions, storage platforms, enterprise-class servers, disaster recovery planning and managed services.
“Netwave has hundreds of customers eager for new cloud data management solutions as they look to improve data availability, disaster recovery and business continuity across their organizations without the added expense of opening and managing new data centers,” said Netwave Vice President Mark Goodson. “With Actifio, we can offer these customers customized cloud services with application-specific Service Level Agreements at a price unheard of using existing technology. This is a win/win all around, for our customers, and for us.”
Netwave Delivers Innovative Cloud Data Management Services
With Actifio, Netwave will now offer multiple cloud data management services – including backup/recovery, data replication, data copy and business continuity for both on- and off-premise customers – on a single platform for their diverse range of commercial business clients, government agencies – including the State of Ohio – and educational institutions. According to Goodson, many of Netwave’s top customers are already using the Actifio-based cloud service, and recognizing the benefits of copy data management.
“We have so many customers that need this solution – even small business owners understand how important it is to backup their data,” said Goodson. “They’re most worried about their operation crashing and burning – and then quickly getting it up and running again without losing any data. With the Actifio PAS solution, they can get their data immediately while eliminating costly point solutions for backup and recovery.”
PAS, a proven virtualized storage solution, is disrupting the enterprise storage industry by transforming its underlying economics with a purpose-built storage system optimized for the real driver of today’s data storage explosion: copy data. By focusing on smarter and more efficient copy data management, where it is not unusual for a business to maintain 13-120 redundant copies of production data, Actifio provides faster recovery and more reliable data protection for up to 90 percent less cost than traditional backup and recovery point tools.
Actifio’s offering delivers an unparalleled virtualized solution that establishes a new industry benchmark for lower costs and ease of operations for service providers and VARs, according to Actifio Founder and CEO Ash Ashutosh.
“We’re excited to help service providers like Netwave deliver on the promise of multiple enterprise-class, SLA-driven cloud data management services from a single platform, in a way that’s simply impossible with legacy technologies,” said Ashutosh. “Netwave is the latest in a growing list of service provider partners looking to transform the underlying economics of cloud-based services, and we’re proud to be helping them do it.”
