actifio - Copy Data ManagementOn March 24 MBBP client Actifio announced a $100 million financing round, one of the largest investment deals for a privately held Boston-area technology firm in years. Actifio is an information technology and software company that delivers copy data virtualization to hundreds of global enterprise customers and service provider partners in more than 30 countries around the world. The new funding will be invested in the core IP and new features of its data virtualization platform as well as the continued expansion of Actifio’s market reach and surrounding ecosystem. Ash Ashutosh, CEO of Actifio, was recently quoted in Forbes discussing the financing:

All of last year, the simple focus was in scaling our business. The last three quarters we were figuring out how to scale, and the one factor that was a constraint was speed of time. Now this helps me grow as fast as possible.

Congratulations Actifio!
