Overall Satisfaction with Actifio Enterprise
We use Actifio [Enterprise] as one of our data protection platforms for our enterprise. We keep one copy of our data at our primary data center and replicate backup copies off to the cloud and to our DR data center in another part of the country. We also leverage local data copies to feed our non-prod environments as well - particularly for SQL server. We leverage Actifio [Enterprise] as our primary SQL backup platform as well. The business problems that is addresses are data and application protection and DR.

Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.
