UST Global Launches New Application Development and Availability Service Platform with Actifio

Today UST Global, an information technology solutions and services company for Global 1000 enterprises, announced a new partnership with Actifio, the leader in copy data virtualization. With Actifio, UST’s customers can now develop new applications faster, while efficiently utilizing their existing server, storage and networking resources. The results are a more agile, resilient and cloud-like IT operation for organization leveraging UST’s new service platform.

“Until now, storage solutions have relied on the purchasing extra hardware that could never guarantee increased efficiency,” said Rakesh Patel, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Sales at UST Global. “Through our 360-degree partnership with Actifio, we’re enhancing the customer’s experiences of storing, protecting, and accessing data, while decreasing costs for these services. We’re allowing companies to focus on efficiency rather than investing financial resources on hardware.”

By virtualizing the management and retention of data, Actifio allows businesses to eliminate multiple data silos and point tools deployed for backup, disaster recovery, business continuity, compliance, analytics, and test and development, and instead rely on one, SLA-driven, virtualized solution. UST’s branded Managed Storage Portfolio takes advantage of the power of Actifio’s data virtualization platform to support UST’s full range of new data management services, including:

  • Rapid application development and testing using Actifio workflows and LiveClone Technologies
  • Simple managed storage services reducing redundant copies of data created across multiple use case
  • Fast disaster recovery solution in the cloud and on-premise with Actifio’s patented DedupAsync replication
  • Complete application-centric backups with instant restores for best-in-class RTO’s
  • Efficient Active Archive using Actifio’s SLA-based management and data retention engine

“We share UST Global’s passion for helping enterprises deliver more efficient IT operations which can transform how business is done” said Ram Shanmugam, VP Cloud Services, Actifio. “By making these new services widely available, UST’s customers can now experience what hundreds of Actifio’s users have known for years – More data doesn’t need to mean more infrastructure, cost and complexity.”

The joint product development agreement will also result in two new UST Global Centers of Excellence in India and Mexico, and UST Global will form a new global practice around Actifio’s copy data virtualization platform. The industry-leading expertise found within UST’s Centers of Excellence (CoEs) plays a key role in the success with clients. The CoEs deliver pragmatic IT solutions that allow clients to consistently achieve their most critical business objectives. UST’s Partner Program complements the Centers of Excellence. The program aims to develop strategic relationships with best-of-breed organizations to provide UST Global developers with advance access to new technology and educational resources.

“When CIOs are searching for partners who can give them a competitive edge, they often find UST Global with their expertise in valuable solution areas such as application development,” said Ash Ashutosh, Founder and CEO, Actifio. “We’re excited to help UST continue to deliver innovative new offerings for leading enterprises around the world, and share their vision for enabling a more resilient and agile cloud-like data center.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
