Isagenix deploys Actifio to build higher quality applications faster

Richard Harris Richard Harris in DevOps Friday, December 16, 2016

Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, has announced that Isagenix, a global provider of products for healthy living, has deployed copy data management software. With Actifio, Isagenix has gained faster, flexible copy data access for DevOps, Business Intelligence (BI), reporting, and Help Desk functions, resulting in reduced infrastructure and operating costs.

Isagenix is a rapidly growing e-Commerce company that provides systems for weight loss, energy, performance, and healthy aging. With more than 570,000 members worldwide it produces 100s of products, packs, and systems for healthy living. As a global company operating in 13 countries, It was struggling to build and launch new applications to support its double-digit annual revenue growth.

In order to keep pace with business growth, it needed to speed up its application development processes, which relied on creating multiple copies of production data running on mirrored infrastructure. In many instances, this resulted in a process taking up to a full week just to create the data needed to develop and test applications.

In its effort to speed up its development processes, it looked for a solution that could help with three things: quickly spinning up new environments, running smoothly in existing infrastructures, and simplifying and expediting the DevOps work streams and process. With Actifio, Isagenix now rapidly produces the needed copies of production data, but without all of the duplicate infrastructure.

"We knew what we were looking for, and we found that and more with Actifio," said Erl Egestad, Vice President of Architecture at Isagenix. "It used to take one week to gain access to our data. We were hoping to get it down to one day. With Actifio, we can now access copies of production data in 30-40 minutes, and prepare a full environment in about three hours."

Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer?
