Catalogic Software, a provider of smart data protection solutions, has sold its Catalogic ECX copy data management business to IBM. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Divesting this business enables Catalogic to focus on its enterprise and cloud data protection and data security solutions, including its recently launched Kubernetes and cloud native data protection service, CloudCasa.
Catalogic pioneered an in-place copy data management solution leveraging storage array snapshot and replication capabilities to modernize IT process such as automated DevTest, data protection with instant recovery, disaster recovery and offload to cloud storage.
The “in-place” snapshot based approach made ECX an ideal solution for partnering with enterprise storage vendors such as IBM. Catalogic will continue to partner with IBM to support its existing ECX customer base.
