Google is acquiring Waltham, Mass.-based backup and disaster recovery (DR) company Actifio to better serve enterprises as they deploy and manage business-critical workloads, including in hybrid scenarios.

Actifio will now become a part of Google Cloud. Google, however, didn’t disclose the financial terms of the deal.

According to the search giant, Actifio’s business continuity solutions will help Google Cloud customers prevent data loss and downtime due to external threats, network failures, human errors and other disruptions.

Actifio helps customers increase business availability by simplifying and accelerating backup and DR at scale, across cloud-native, and hybrid environments.

Further, it automatically backs up and protect a variety of workloads, including enterprise databases like SAP HANA, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL, as well as virtual machines (VMs) in VMware, Hyper-V, physical servers, and Google Compute Engine.

Ash Ashutosh, CEO at Actifio, said: “Backup and recovery is essential to enterprise cloud adoption and, together with Google Cloud, we are well-positioned to serve the needs of data-driven customers across industries.”
