Deployed Actifio when it was a startup by way of a managed backup service with a large global vendor who used Actifio's product as their cloud backup technology. There were significant hurdles early on. Product did not perform as stated, or the claims of it's capabilities left out many caveats and limitations. We felt as though we were the first customer doing many of the things we did, because the functions did not work when using them in a very typical deployment. Over time it has gotten better, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Some of the capabilities claimed by Actifio are only marginally useful.
Start small, focus on virtualized server environment. Perform a detailed POC before deploying for databases of non-Windows based systems.
Improved our RPO and RTO for virtual servers tremendously. In that environment, it has proven to be very valuable from a tactical standpoint.
Tested the product better so quality was higher. More clearly identified the limitation and caveats.
Better proof of concept or pilot program in order to more clearly understand the capabilities and limitations.

Actifio is administration friendly, easy to manage, and the performance is top notch.
Conduct a POC and you will quickly see that Actifio performs.
Ease of administration.
We are early in the roll out and have yet to need support.
