Executive Summary

Catalogic® ECX™ in-place copy data management (CDM) for Pure Storage simplifies and automates operation of your Pure Storage FlashArray infrastructure through comprehensive management of Pure Storage FlashRecover snapshots, replication and clones. By providing an application- and VM- aware copy management software layer, ECX reduces copy sprawl, simplifies data protection and disaster recovery, and delivers value-adding use cases such as automated infrastructure deployment for Dev-Test or DevOps.

 

Catalogic’s in-place CDM approach has significant advantages over alternatives in that it requires no additional infrastructure for the user to purchase and manage, and leverages the existing Pure Storage environment rather than requiring the creation of a fully redundant environment for the copies of the production data.
