One of the First SaaS Offerings to Perform Backup, DR, Database Cloning for Both On-Premises & Multi-Cloud Workloads on Google Cloud Platform
Actifio, a pioneer of multi-cloud copy data management software, announced the expansion of its Actifio GO offering to full Copy Data Management-as-a-Service on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace.
Actifio GO for GCP is a Software-a-a-Service (SaaS) offering, first announced in April as a backup-as-a-service offering. Now, it enables enterprises to consume backup, disaster recovery and copy data management for databases like SAP, SQL, etc., as-a-service from GCP Marketplace in a simple and easy monthly subscription manner. Organizations can protect not only GCP VMs from one region to another region, but also protect their on-premises workloads and critical applications running on VMware, Hyper-V, and physical server platforms as well as workloads from other public clouds.
With Actifio GO for GCP, enterprises can:
- Use a single pane of glass to backup & recover both on-premises and GCP VMs, one of the only SaaS offerings with such capabilities on GCP
- Reduce their billing complexity with simple and integrated billing of GCP infrastructure with Actifio GO for GCP
- Reduce the risk of application downtime with Actifio GO’s on-demand instant recovery capability of mission-critical applications such as SAP HANA, Microsoft SQL Server, and other enterprise databases and VMs in GCP
- Reduce their data center footprint and storage costs by backing up VMware VMs directly to GCP Nearline/Coldline object storage and perform on-demand DR in GCP
- Accelerate application test and release cycles by rapidly provisioning dozens of multi-TB database clones to Dev/QA/UAT/Security test environments in GCP.
- Get started quickly with a simple monthly subscription pricing model per VM for VMs and per TB for databases
- Have the peace of mind that they can access the data instantly from Google Cloud Persistent Disk/Nearline/Coldline storage in their own cloud account even after unsubscribing from Actifio GO for GCP
