Actifio CDS 6.0, Actifio Connector 2.1 Achieve SAP-Certified Integration with SAP NetWeaver®

BOSTON, MA – May 19, 2014 — / — Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced Actifio CDS 6.0, the most recent version of Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform, and Actifio Connector 2.1, a lightweight piece of software that is installed on the server to provide tighter integration with various applications, have been certified by SAP to integrate with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The solutions provide a reliable, high-performance, and production-ready copy data virtualization functionality, including accelerated test data management and recovery of an SAP® solution running on an Oracle database on the Linux, HP-UX and AIX operating systems.

“We are delighted to announce the successful achievement of SAP certification for Actifio CDS 6.0 and Actifio Connector 2.1, now in use by hundreds of global enterprises and cloud-service providers,” said Ash Ashutosh, Founder and CEO, Actifio. “Actifio’s ability to leverage the business potential of assets provided by solutions from SAP and other vendors will prove highly beneficial to current and future customer engagements.”

Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualization platform is optimized for managing copies of data, helping eliminate redundant silos of infrastructure and data management applications.  By virtualizing the management and retention of data, Actifio transforms the need for multiple data silos and point tools deployed for backup, disaster recovery, business continuity, compliance, analytics, and test and development into one, SLA-driven, virtualized solution.  The end result when using Actifio for development and test data management: faster time to provision, more time to develop and test in a given project timeframe, improved code quality due to using a current state database, and ultimately, faster time to delivery and revenue.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center has certified that Actifio CDS 6.0 and Actifio Connector 2.1 integrate with SAP solutions to easily manage critical data for accelerated application development, testing and resiliency.  Actifio’s test data management functionality delivers clear benefits while enabling organizations to better meet the needs of the development and test teams, including the following:

  • Instant virtual copies for development sandbox creation without impacting production or taking substantial time to provision
  • Actifio’s LiveClone™ enables data to be updated automatically from production in a space-efficient manner, allowing development and test to work with near real-time data over the lifecycle of the project
  • Actifio Workflows using LiveClone can be used to rapidly feed data to masking and sub-setting processes with push-button automation
  • Using up-to-date instances of production data for development, testing, and quality assurance, code quality is improved; rework requirements are reduced, and development lifecycles are reduced
  • Actifio’s robust local/remote site synchronization makes it easy to support geographically distributed development teams and help ensure they have the data they need to be effective

“SAP applications have an enormous reach across the enterprise, and certifying solutions to integrate with these applications represents a key milestone for companies like Actifio,” said Ashish Nadkarni, IDC Research Director. “With this certification, Actifio’s solutions will be exposed to a new audience of customers, which can provide more growth opportunities for the company as it continues to capitalize on the $46B copy data market.”
