Actifio, the copy data virtualisation company and its partner Spectrum, have announced the continued growth of Spectrum's Actifio-based services business.

A Platinum Partner of Actifio's since late 2014, during the last year, Spectrum has experienced rapid expansion, more than doubling sales, and specifically growing its business by over 40 percent from existing and new client adoption of Actifio-backed services for data protection, disaster recovery and application testing and development.

One of the biggest problems that Spectrum has seen across all of its clients, regardless of industry is a growth of application data kept inside organisations and the sprawling costly infrastructure and processes needed to manage it.

“It is not uncommon to have as many as 25 copies of the same application data for different use cases, stakeholders, or siloed infrastructure stack,” says Anton Aalders, CTO, Spectrum.

“This creates a lot of excess spending and is a waste of valuable time and resources just for data management and infrastructure administration.

“Backed by our consulting, our clients have been able to see the agility Actifio provides especially around accelerating test cycles, while also getting better, SLA-driven protection of their critical data assets.”

With copy data virtualisation from Actifio, Aalders says Spectrum has enabled customers to eliminate excess licensing and hardware costs, reduce operational barriers and complexity typically associated with data protection, disaster recovery and application testing processes.

“Businesses are going through an unprecedented shift to digitalisation, and with that, applications and their data have become the new levers for meeting customer needs, for growth, for innovation,” adds Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio.

“Strategically minded partners like Spectrum are truly at the forefront of helping enterprises address this shift, by letting them consume infrastructure on-demand in Spectrum's cloud, and delivering the data access, protection and mobility that will help them be more responsive and more agile in their business strategy and execution.”

Based in Auckland and Wellington, Spectrum forms strategic, consultative partnerships with clients, supporting a wide variety of New Zealand organisations, from startups to multinationals, in finance, government, insurance, pharmaceutical and other sectors.

“We're very excited to welcome Spectrum as our first platinum partner in the region,” adds Patrick O'Donnell, VP & General Manager for Asia-Pacific, Actifio.

“Spectrum is exactly the type of strategic partner we are looking for, because they are incredibly passionate about customer success, and challenge the status quo.

“Together, we are helping clients leverage copy data virtualisation to tackle their biggest data and application development challenges.”
