DataBank Partners with Actifio to Expand Data Backup and DevOps Service Offerings

The Actifio Copy Data Virtualization platform enables DataBank’s strategy to bring wider range of managed and cloud services to the enterprise market

Dallas, Texas – December 15, 2015 – Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, is powering a new class of backup, disaster recovery and DevOps services for DataBank, a provider of enterprise-class business solutions across the Midwestern United States. DataBank provides customized colocation solutions and managed services designed to help organizations manage their risk and improve business performance.

DataBank’s customers were in need of managed and cloud service solutions that moved away from the deficiencies embedded in their “old IT” and the difficulties with compliance, backing up data and disaster recovery caused by those legacy approaches to data management.

Actifio’s technology enables DataBank to deliver all of the functionality its customers have been crying out for from one comprehensive platform that simplifies IT operations and lets DataBank’s clients focus on their core business objectives. For DataBank clients, backup and recovery capabilities can now become fast and simple with a single, streamlined platform providing greater functionality and better SLAs for recovery than the multiple in house tools that are usually replaced.

DataBank customers now also have access to a full toolkit for DevOps, including rapid access to virtual copies of production data via Actifio’s capabilities for Test Data Management, drastically improving development speed and quality.

“Our initial reaction was similar to many clients when presented with Actifio capabilities: Prove it,” said Bryan Porter, Chief Technology Officer at DataBank. “Prove it they did, and it’s allowed us to build new services that deliver greater value. Because we’re not just managing what customers had with more legacy backup tools. Our customers are seeing that our Actifio-based data services are completely different from anything else they’ve seen. This innovation and focus on the application, versus the infrastructure, leads to more strategic discussions about how to develop apps faster and become more competitive.”

The Actifio Copy Data Virtualization platform helps DataBank deliver a range of benefits to its customers:

  • Increased simplicity, reliability and speed for data backup;
  • A robust, reliable and cost effective set of disaster recovery and failover testing capabilities that allow for more straightforward regulatory compliance;
  • Self-service access to accelerated high-quality development and testing resources, with faster application cycle times and lower costs;
  • More versatile DevOps services to help clients achieve better, fast development results.

“DataBank has a proven record of delivering high quality managed services for enterprise customers,” Ash Ashutosh, CEO of Actifio. “They recognize that solving the copy data problem is an integral step in allowing their customers to implement meaningful transformation that helps them to stay agile and competitive. Our collaboration means more businesses can access a full range of backup, DR, DevOps and testing capabilities while saving significant amounts of time, money and storage space.”

Databank is featured in the Actifio Service Provider Marketplace, a global resource for enterprise IT and channel reseller organizations to find accredited providers of managed services and cloud services based on Actifio technology.
