2014 Big Data 100: The Emerging Big Data Vendors
Top Executive: CEO Ash Ashutosh
Fast-growing Actifio has developed a copy data management platform that eliminates the problem of "data sprawl" across a company by creating a single copy of an organization's production data and making it virtually available for backup, disaster recovery, software development and testing, business analytics and archiving purposes.
In March Actifio, founded in 2009, received $100 million in financing, giving the Waltham, Mass.-based company a valuation of about $1 billion. About 85 percent of the company's sales are through channel partners.
