Catalogic Software’s ECX Instant Copy Data Management Platform allows enterprise data centers to gain visibility, insight, and control “in a snap” over their vast accumulation of copy data. The ECX software platform is extensible through plug-in providers; current providers include NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP, ONTAP 7-mode, CLOUD ONTAP, and VMware.

By cataloging all tiers of NetApp and VMware snapshots, an organization can use ECX to locate any file or object across the data center quickly, identify stale or unwanted data, and take action on this data. ECX integrates transparently with NetApp snapshot technology, providing detailed reporting and data re-use workflows for copy data management.

The ECX platform can automate instant data access and re-use for multiple purposes across data recovery, disaster recovery, and business continuity — and for transforming Test/Dev into DevOps. Agentless ECX software installs in minutes and leverages current storage investments, no need to rip and replace existing storage platforms to derive value.
