The most important functions of a database administrator are to have a recovery plan and a database backup in place, both tested and valid. The Catalogic ECX Copy Data Management platform, together with the Pure Storage FlashArray, provides features to achieve quick, application-consistent SQL Server database recovery and replication to test backups. In addition, these features can also be used to shorten the time required for creation of software development and reporting environments that require application-consistent SQL Server databases as their data store. This white paper provides an architectural overview of the Catalogic ECX snapshot management integration with the Pure Storage FlashArray in a Microsoft SQL environment.
