Backup is dead. It’s a brash statement we see and hear quite frequently in this day and age. Let me be clear Backup isn’t dead. It’s a necessity and a functional process that every organization should run to ensure they can recover data when needed.
At the heart of every data protection solution is the repository. The beating heart of our data protection solution, Catalogic DPX, is vStor.
Catalogic Software is pleased to announce that DPX 4.6.1 will provide SAP-certified protection and recovery for SAP HANA Databases.
As the Southern Utah University (SUU) struggled with their data protection system, due to their infrastructure becoming heavily virtualized, Catalogic assisted in building their new system to make VM backup and restore fast and easy, while providing more space in their data center.
This week we launched DPX 4.6.0 and it’s great to announce so many major features in a single release. In this article, we run through some of the key components of the new release that our team has been putting a ton of effort into.
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.

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?
