Actifio Named Sole Visionary in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Backup and Recovery Software

Copy Data Virtualisation Pioneer Recognised for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Actifio, the copy data virtualisation company, today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner, Inc.’s recently published Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Backup and Recovery Software (June 2016) report. Actifio is the sole vendor identified as a Visionary to be included in the report.

“We are proud to be included in this new Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Backup and Recovery Software, and to have been recognised as the lone Visionary in the space by Gartner,” said Ash Ashutosh, Actifio Founder and CEO. “Data is the lifeblood of the modern enterprise, and our technology enables our customers not only to protect their critical data, but to leverage it as an asset for testing and development as they embrace next-generation hybrid cloud architectures. We believe our inclusion in the Magic Quadrant once again validates our vision that enterprise backup data should not be seen as a siloed and stagnant part of an organisation, but an asset enabling our customers to become more agile, resilient and cloud-ready.”

In its report, Gartner states, “By 2020, 30% of organisations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery (e.g., disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.), up from less than 10% at the beginning of 2016.” Actifio believes that copy data virtualization is the key to unlocking enterprise data from the silo of recovery and utilising it to make meaningful changes to an organisation.
