Sungard AS and Actifio Deliver Modern Backup & Recovery

June 6, 2018

Keep energy flowing. Keep real estate protected. Keep medicines available.

From energy suppliers to global real estate brokers to national pharmacies, companies around the world are becoming increasingly digital. Organizations are adopting cloud, embracing IT transformation and adding modern, agile and efficient methods to harness the power of their business backbone: data. And with that unprecedented growth in information and analytics, data protection has evolved.

As a result, corporations are embracing solutions like Cloud Based Recovery for Actifio environments from Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) to back up their data and achieve virtual recovery more efficiently.

Backed by 40 years of data protection and recovery experience, Sungard AS partnered with Actifio over three years ago to deliver a managed data replication and recovery solution to help customers achieve data protection transformation. With several petabytes (PB) of data under protection, this partnership grows stronger by the day.

“Sungard AS chooses best-of-breed technologies to address a broad set of use cases, particularly where customers are looking for combined backup and recovery solutions for large database environments,” said Joseph George, Vice President of Product Management, Sungard AS. “From customer premises to the Sungard AS recovery cloud, our enterprise-class solutions leveraging Actifio provide resilient, turnkey operations for a broad range of customer data protection and disaster recovery needs,” he added.

Their latest offering is a Managed Data Replication service offering a backup and recovery Service Level Agreement (SLA) to solve for the needs of all types of enterprises. The solution provides customers with enhanced backup and disaster recovery on a Sungard AS cloud-based recovery platform for a full range of data protection capabilities such as backup and restore, replication and recovery. Any customer looking for an integrated backup and recovery solution with a modernized approach for large database backups in less time would benefit from this service.

Other customer benefits of their solution include:

  • 98% backup and restore success rate Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Simplified and storage agnostic virtual machine backups
  • SLA backed Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs)
  • Automated, orchestrated and non-disruptive testing of recovery plans

As part of this service, Sungard AS will:

  • Design, set up, install and configure the solution at customer production site
  • Set up backups and replication to a Sungard AS data center
  • Manage, monitor and maintain the backup schedule and policies
  • Configure recovery plans and group to achieve RTO SLA
  • Execute periodic testing on behalf of the customer and demonstrate RTO SLA attainment
  • Enable customers to leverage a monthly operating expense model and avoid expensive capital outlays for recovery infrastructure (both hardware and software).

Coupled with the Sungard AS Managed Recovery Programme, (MRP), the Managed Data replication and Cloud Recovery solutions can deliver application-level recoveries, allowing customers to focus on critical business development opportunities while relying on Sungard AS to deliver data protection.

During the annual Actifio Data Driven conference (June 5-6), companies can explore new, efficient ways to achieve data protection. There, conference attendees can connect with Actifio and Sungard AS to understand how their solutions help customers successfully address backup and recovery to achieve better, faster SLA-supported data protection.
