ECX Data Sheet

Catalogic ECX provides application- and VMware-aware management of storage array copy processes: snapshots, replication and clones. But using ECX, users can dramatically lower the time spent on managing copies, reduce copy sprawl, and deliver useable data copies or virtual machines to end users with the push of a button. ECX supports key enterprise database such as Oracle, SQL Server, SAP HANA and InterSystems Caché, allowing IT organizations to create and distribute working database instances automatically or via user self-service. ECX supports storage arrays from NetApp, Pure Storage and IBM.

Catalogic ECX Highlights

Organizations of all sizes need to modernize their IT processes in order to enable critical new use cases such as operational automation, DevOps and integration of system-of-record data with Cloud compute. They are equally challenged with improving management efficiencies for long established IT processes such as data protection, disaster recovery, test and development, reporting and business analytics

Copy Data Management (CDM) is an IT modernization technology that focuses on making use of existing storage resources in a manner that is efficient, automated, scalable and easy to use, delivering the data access that is urgently needed to transform IT. Catalogic ECX, in conjunction with multiple enterprise storage arrays, provides in-place copy data management that modernizes IT processes, enables key use cases, and does it all with existing infrastructure.

  • Automate the creation and use of copy data—snapshots, clones, and replicas—on existing enterprise storage infrastructure.
  • Dramatically reduce time spent on infrastructure management while improving reliability
  • Modernize existing IT resources by providing automation, user self-service and API-based operations without the need for any additional hardware.
  • Simplify management of critical IT functions such as data protection and disaster recovery.
  • Automate test and development infrastructure provisioning, reducing management time as much as 99%.
  • Drive new, high-value use cases such as leveraging hybrid cloud compute and rapid DevOps development. 
  • Catalog and track IT objects: volumes, snapshots, virtual machines, datastores, etc.
  • Deliver advanced insights into copy data environments across the enterprise, including protection RPO/RTO compliance reporting.
  • Supports a multi-vendor selection of storage arrays, including systems from NetApp, IBM and Pure Storage.
