“This release is the first step in restating the value of our DPX offering,” said Ethan Blynn, VP and GM, DPX business unit. “We’re pleased that this begins a significant wave of updates and innovation to DPX that will continue through 2018.“
The DPX, originally called Backup Express, has a long history of innovation.
As Blynn noted: “Catalogic invented block-level, incremental forever backups. We pioneered the concept of spinning up VMs from a snapshot-based backup copy. In fact, much of what the backup world now takes for granted were Catalogic innovations.“
In the past few years, the firm was focused on opening up the growing market for ‘Copy Data Management’ software.
Ken Barth, CEO, noted: “We never stopped engineering efforts on DPX, but a lot of our innovation was going into ECX, our copy data management software. With ECX now a leading copy data solution, we’re getting back to our roots in backup and recovery. We’ve got some exciting things in the works.“
The DPX 4.5.1 release focuses on end-user management simplification, enhanced reporting and expanding OS and application support. A list of updates is in the What’s New document.
