Advanced data management, backup and recovery with unique solutions that lead in the field

What is our primary use case?

There are many use cases for Actifio. It is most popular for the test data management feature in the solution, and the capabilities for instant backup and recovery.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product has unique capabilities that lead the product category in test data management, cloning and recovery."
  • "While the product does support various databases, the company needs to make more of an effort to support N-minus-one compatibility."

What other advice do I have?

The way Actifio is shaping up is really good, especially in the way they are opening new avenues for data management — like in terms of test data management, database cloning, and the capability of duplicating databases instantly. Also, it is one of the only solutions which is used by SAP for their own S/4HANA test data management. This one product enables a lot of very good solutions for backup of SAP S/4HANA either on to my systems and appliance or on the cloud.

Easy integration with cloud and object storage backup pools

What is our primary use case?

Backup of virtual environments (VMware and Hyper-V). The scale is good, we are backing up over 3000 VM's with Actifio today. We have also run successful POC's with backups at remote offices and backups of SQL databases. We plan to continue rolling out this product to other workloads.

What other advice do I have?

Actifio is not putting much development into their deduplication technology anymore. Just skip it. The cloud/object store option is called OnVault. It works way better, scales better, and has much more freedom.

Rapid recovery with a simplified user interface, and it can be deployed as an appliance

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for backups and for testing the environment. The backup can be used for your test environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "They will assist me in achieving whatever budget issue the client may be having."
  • "Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment."

What other advice do I have?

Our customers are either fully on-premises or fully on the cloud, none are hybrid at the moment. It's an enterprise solution for large companies. For smaller companies, we recommend other solutions that would be equivalent but can be implemented with a lower budget. When I speak of backup solutions there are only two that I have in mind. The first is Actifio for enterprise customers who have a good budget, and the second is Acronis, which is for customers who have a lower budget and don't necessarily need all of the features. I don't have a lot of knowledge on solutions such as Commvault…
