IBM Highlights Addition of Virtual Data Pipeline, Powered by Actifio, to Cloud Pak for Data 3.0 During IBM Think 2020 Digital Conference

The role of IBM Virtual Data Pipeline, powered by Actifio, was amplified as IBM announced the release of its Cloud Pak for Data 3.0 during the IBM Think 2020 Digital conference. Actifio, the pioneer of multi-cloud copy data management software, provides its patented Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) technology as part of IBM's ecosystem of data and AI services.

IBM Cloud Pak for Data 3.0 is the company's modern data and AI platform that containerizes multiple offerings for delivery as microservices to accelerate clients' journeys to AI. Collecting, organizing and analyzing data to infuse AI across organizations, on any cloud platform, this offering provides the open platform enterprises need by running exclusively on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

In growing its ecosystem of data and AI services, IBM Cloud Pak 3.0 will include IBM Virtual Data Pipeline to provision and refresh virtual test environments in just minutes, enabling 95 percent storage capacity savings.

Charles King, principal analyst at PUND-IT, said, "The role of Actifio's Virtual Data Pipeline technology in one of IBM's most significant announcements at Think 2020 Digital is a strong indicator of the continued advance of AI across their customers' businesses. It provides an extra layer of security and control to the vital process of developing and testing apps while dramatically reducing the storage capacity needed."

Ash Ashutosh, Actifio Co-Founder and CEO, said, "IBM famously said 'There is no AI without IA.' Information architecture is critical. Whether they are developing modern applications or managing analytics for AI, 80% of the work is collecting and preparing data. By integrating our Virtual Data Pipeline technology into the new IBM Cloud Pak for Data 3.0, IBM is enabling customers to instantly access data from multiple sources and deliver data-driven decisions faster than ever before."
