We’ve Expanded Our Copy Data Support to SAP HANA Posted on May 17th, 2017 by Sathya Sankaran

Our new Catalogic ECX release 2.6 expanded the application support matrix considerably by adding SQL physical hosts, Epic EHR with InterSystems Cache environments, physical server basic file systems (Windows, Linux, AIX) and VMware pRDMs. On top of all these enhancements, we were also tremendously excited to add support for SAP HANA environments.

Our New Epic Support is Epic! Posted on May 11th, 2017 by Sathya Sankaran

Catalogic ECX, with its latest version 2.6, has added support for Caché database instances with native integration on top of the support it already offered for SQL Server and Oracle. Unlike several established vendors such as EMC, NetApp and Commvault, we have integrated specifically with the Caché APIs, subsequently avoiding the need for pre-scripts/post-scripts for snapshotting as well as for recovery mounts. Coupling this with the “in-place” copy data management benefits of Catalogic across multiple storage platforms, this is now truly an industry leading feature set for protecting and recovering Epic and Caché environments.

Are All Storage Snapshots Equal? Seven Things To Consider Posted on May 5th, 2017 by Sathya Sankaran

Every primary storage vendor offers the ability to snapshot, replicate and/or vault datasets. But when it comes to end users, snapshots are like gym memberships: everyone’s got them, but very few use them. At Catalogic, our software is uniquely designed and developed to take advantage of these native capabilities of your storage arrays, but we are aware that (like body types and skill levels) not all snapshots are the same. The technology needs good genes, just as much as good form and the ability to perform and persevere.

What is Copy Data Management and How Can It Help? Posted on Mar 16th, 2017 by Peter Eicher

Copy Data Management (CDM) is a relatively new IT category of solutions designed to manage the creation, use, distribution, retention, and clean-up of copies of production data or “copy data.”  “Copy data” is all data not currently being used in production. This can be a snapshot, backup, or replica of a version made for various IT or business functions—data recovery, Dev-Test, analytics, and so on.

It was Pure Goodness: Thoughts from Pure Storage Sales Kickoff 2017 Posted on Feb 17th, 2017 by Sathya Sankaran

Catalogic has worked together with Pure on several strategic accounts where our software stack added application consistency and application awareness to their snapshot and replication technology known as FlashRecover. It helps them compete effectively against the AppSyncs and SnapManagers, but also avoids losing secondary footprint to companies that sell data protection appliances, whether they call them modern or bricked or hyper-converged or next gen or whatever.

Why In-Place Copy Data Management is The Better Choice Posted on Dec 13th, 2016 by Peter Eicher

The Copy Data Management (CDM) space has gotten quite a bit of attention this year. Storage industry leaders Dell EMC and IBM both announced CDM offerings. A number of start-up players are growing rapidly, Catalogic Software among them! But there remains a fundamental difference in approach among the up-and-comers: should you use in-place CDM or go with an out-of-band, appliance-based model? Let’s look at the differences, but first let’s agree on what CDM means in the first place.
