Champion Solutions Group is Recognized by Actifio with the Partner of the Year Award

Boca Raton, FL – January 24, 2013 —Actifio has proudly announced Champion Solutions Group as their 2012 North American Partner of the Year. Champion has been selected from Actifio’s partner community for demonstrating our commitment, leadership, and innovation in providing customers with world-class solutions and services using Actifio technology.

“Actifio is excited to celebrate the strength of our channel partner community as they continue to deliver valuable copy data storage solutions for our joint clients,” said Russell Rosa, VP WW Channels, “We’re honored to recognize Champion Solutions Group as the 2012 Partner of the Year because of their sales success and delivering on their commitment as a trusted advisor to bring innovative solutions to their clients.”

Champion is working with many of its customers to better manage their data and delivers a turnkey, easy-to-use agentless backup solution that works with their current storage environment. This solution drastically reduces data sprawl by eliminating the need for copy data, but still allows customers to keep snapshots indefinitely while consuming only very small amounts of VMware resources and without wasting storage.

Through a blend of best practices and technology, Champion transforms the chaos of multiple silos of infrastructure and point tools traditionally deployed for backup, disaster recovery, business continuity, compliance, analytics and test and development.  According to Michael Piltoff, Champion’s Senior Vice President of Technology, “this results in up to a 10x reduction in storage costs and 70 percent lower network bandwidth requirements.”

“Champion is thrilled to be recognized by Actifio for this great award,” said Chris Pyle, President and CEO, Champion Solutions Group. “This solution drastically reduces storage costs, will eliminate managing multiple copies of data, and gives our clients a near zero backup window and time to recovery. What excites our team about our solution is the time it gives back to the IT department. In this ever changing world, the role of the IT department needs to evolve from ‘keep it up and running’ to one of creating real business value.  The only way for IT to evolve as a true business enabler is to have more time and this approach to data management will deliver time, money, and resources.”
