Catalogic Adds Oracle and SQL Integration, EMC Unity Storage, Amazon S3 With Latest Release of Its Flagship Copy Data Management Platform, ECX 2.4
WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ–(Marketwired – Jun 28, 2016) – #CatalogicSoftware, the leading provider of software-defined copy data management (CDM), today announced the release of ECX 2.4, the newest version of its award-winning software platform. This release delivers significant capabilities by adding #Oracle and #SQL application aware integration, support for #EMCUnity storage, native support for #Amazon Web Services ( #AWS ) and deepening integration with popular DevOps tools. ECX 2.4 includes several other significant features that expand the capabilities of the platform for new and existing customers.
As the market’s only independent “In-Place” CDM solution, ECX is designed to leverage the snapshot and replication technologies of the existing storage and virtual infrastructure in a customer environment. This in-place CDM approach has significant advantages over alternatives in that it requires no additional infrastructure for the customer to purchase and manage, and leverages the existing production environment rather than requiring the creation of new copies of data. This advantage is especially powerful in database environments where the databases need to remain online and accessible continuously, and there the data volumes make the creation of extra copies untenable.
“Today’s release of ECX 2.4 delivers deep integration for both Oracle and SQL, allowing our customers to leverage their existing infrastructure to further expand their ability to eliminate copy sprawl, while dramatically improving their capabilities to deliver fresh copies of key databases to those functions and business units that demand them,” commented Ed Walsh, CEO of Catalogic. ”At the same time, we are delivering huge advancements in ECX’s capabilities for both Hybrid Cloud and DevOps — two key modernization initiatives that our customers are pursuing.”
