Recovering lost files in a NetApp file environment. Sounds easy enough, but for IT Admins, this common request could lead to major headaches and hours of lost time. The struggle is over. This blog will explain how you can use RestoreManager to easily locate and recover files on NetApp storage copies.
IT automation is increasingly adopted as a means of rapidly scaling IT operations. This blog discusses in detail how Catalogic ECX is helping organizations drive automation of platform delivery. One example is ECX automated deployment of Oracle databases on Pure Storage via help desk ticketing. The other shows how an organization is using ECX and vRealize Orchestrator to deploy and manage over 14,000 VMs on NetApp storage.
Learn how a major technology company moved away from VMware to oVirt to reduce costs, and then switched from Bacula to vProtect for a better data protection solution. vProtect cut backup times in half and offered a much easier to use interface.

The latest update of vProtect brings new features to the Nebula release, first announced in April of this year. The new code drop, v 3.8.1, is available immediately and has a lot of nice additions including support for OpenStack, updates for RHV/oVirt and Oracle VMs, and more.
Another day, another ransomware attack. It was recently reported that the city council in Riviera Beach, Florida, “voted to pay nearly $600,000 to hackers who crippled the city’s computer systems with a ransomware attack.” This sets a new record for publicly revealed payments by a government organization. And it does seem that government organizations get hit a lot, or maybe it’s just that they’re required by law to reveal it.
For the oldsters like me who’ve been around the backup world for a long time, we remember when tape was the only game in town. I even remember flash-in-the-pan technologies like tape RAID, which was an attempt to get backups going faster. There were a lot of good reasons to move backups to disk instead of tape: faster backup and restore, direct access vs. linear access to files, and you can do fancy stuff like spin up full system recoveries right from the backup repository (Catalogic invented that, by the way!). The move to disk was so strong that many organizations ended up getting rid of tape altogether. But have we gone too far in the disk direction?
The developers at Storware never rest on their laurels. The latest release of vProtect – v 3.8, code named Nebula -- comes chock-full of cool new features and updates...
Today Catalogic announced that we’ve entered a strategic partnership with ProLion, an Austrian software company specializing in tools for NetApp environments. This is a perfect fit for us, considering Catalogic’s long (over 20 year) history of working with NetApp technology and NetApp partners.
It was only three months ago that I blogged about the new vProtect release. And now it’s time for another one! Hot from the developers’ keyboards comes vProtect v 3.7, the Multiverse release. Why Multiverse? Because it’s opening up new worlds.
One of the things we really liked about Storware, when we chose to partner with them, was their aggressive, agile development style. They put out a steady pulse of new releases, adding valuable new features on a (roughly) quarterly basis. And now, only a couple of months after we announced the partnership, we've got a new vProtect release!
