BOSTON, Dec. 22, 2015 — Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced that EchoStor Technologies, a leading technology solution provider based in Hopkinton, Mass., achieved Actifio Platinum partner status. EchoStor earned Platinum Partner status with Actifio by demonstrating its expertise and ability to deliver business outcomes for their clients with Copy Data Virtualization. EchoStor is working with the Actifio platform to help enterprise customers better protect, access and move their data for critical use cases including backup modernization, disaster recovery and test data management for application development.
“What our customers love about working with Actifio and EchoStor is that we’re alleviating the exhausting processes of managing multiple point solutions for data management,” said Scott Trinque, President and CTO of EchoStor. “We’re arming them with a platform that gives them a leg-up in their industry by improving application development and backup capabilities. In doing so, we’re helping our customers save time and money they can now invest in projects that are important to their business.”
EchoStor is focused on designing creative solutions for IT environments that make data more accessible to both operations teams and developers, therefore increasing productivity and exceeding business goals. By leveraging Actifio’s Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP), customers are lowering their infrastructure costs by dramatically reducing the number of redundant physical copies siloed throughout their organizations. EchoStor customers are now empowered to:
- Reduce overall operating costs related to infrastructure,
- Improve application availability in the cloud and on-premises with Actifio’s patented Dedup Async Replication, and
- Enable non-disruptive migrations among storage platforms and to the Cloud.
“Our channel partner program is an integral part of our growing business. When we collaborate with a committed industry expert like EchoStor who really understands customers’ needs around data protection and test/dev, we’re able to open new markets and reach customers that have not yet experienced the transformative power of Copy Data Virtualization,” said Jim Sullivan, President of Actifio. “Recently, we have shared some significant customer wins that have proven the effectiveness and productivity of our partnership with EchoStor.”
