Comtec Partners With Actifio To Solve The Twin Challenges Of Data Backup and Disaster Recovery

Comtec is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Actifio to address the root cause of exponential data growth and to provide a range of Off-site Backup and High Availability Disaster Recovery Services to UK businesses.

Online PR News – 07-December-2012 – Reigate, United Kingdom, 06/12/12 – Most organisations are at a stage where the data they store is growing exponentially; this has severe consequences with backup window stretching for many hours and in some instances over 24 hours. The result is questionable reliability of traditional backup methods and an impossible challenge to guarantee data availability against business driven SLAs.

“After a comprehensive search of the market, we found Actifio’s Copy Data Management approach was the most elegant way of solving the escalating data challenge,” stated Nick Claxson, Managing Director, Comtec. “Comtec plays a key role in helping organisations to design and build their IT infrastructure – our ability to address backup and data availability is key to this.”

As Actifio’s Platinum Partner in the UK, Comtec are able to help organisations to virtualise their data management through deploying Actifio’s Copy Data Management within their own IT infrastructure. Comtec have also invested in placing this core infrastructure into the Comtec Cloud to enable them to launch a fully managed electronic Backup-As-A-Service and a High-Availability Disaster Recovery service.

“Comtec’s standing in the UK market and the breadth and depth of their IT infrastructure and Datacentre expertise makes them the ideal partner for Actifio,” stated Greg Scorziello, Managing Director EMEA, Actifio. “We feel that the service proposition addresses a real need in UK businesses.”
