05 May 16

Actifio has partnered with NextGen to bring its Copy Data Virtualisation technology to customers across Australia.

Working with NextGen, the specialist distributor that brings data centre, cloud solutions and services to market, Actifio aims to extend its footprint in the Australian region.

NextGen brings together established and emerging technologies to provide data centre and cloud-based solutions for channel partners. Actifio’s Copy Data Virtualisation is a prime fit for Aussie organisations, as it provides a number of benefits such as reduced cost and complexity, according to NextGen.

John Walters, NextGen managing director, says, "Actifio's Copy Data Virtualisation technology is innovative and unique because it helps progressive IT organisations solve old technology problems with new solutions. By eliminating multiple physical data silos and simplifying data management, it can deliver significant costs savings and business benefits to customers.”

He says, "Actifio complements our existing portfolio perfectly and represents a great opportunity for our partner ecosystem to lead the way in helping their customers solve complex data management challenges. We're very much looking forward to working closely with the team."

Patrick O'Donnell, Actifio VP and general manager for Asia-Pacific, adds, "The NextGen team has a huge amount of expertise in the data centre and cloud market, and have the network in place to expand Actifio's reach and awareness across Australia."

"It's key for us to work closely with a distributor that has both the reach and technical capability to develop a strong channel and ultimately enable more of our customers with unprecedented value to move their business forward,” O’Donnell says.
