Catalogic Sells ECX Copy Data Management Business to Partner IBM

For undisclosed amount

Catalogic Software, Inc. sold its ECX copy data management business to IBM Corp.

Catalogic 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.
The firm 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, DR and offload to cloud storage. The “in-place” snapshot based approach made ECX a solution for partnering with enterprise storage vendors such as IBM. Catalogic will continue to partner with IBM to support its existing ECX customer base.
IBM storage has been an important business partner for Catalogic,” said Ken Barth, CEO. “We built a great team with a strong focus on supporting IBM storage and we wish that team continued success. I am excited about the future of Catalogic with a stronger focus on building our SaaS platform for protecting hybrid and cloud native environments.”
Last November, Catalogic launched CloudCasa, a simple, scalable, cloud-native data protection and DR service for cloud native applications. It supports leading Kubernetes distributions and managed services and cloud database services, and it is available in cloud marketplaces including SUSE Rancher and DigitalOcean. With CloudCasa, IT department doesn’t need to be Kubernetes experts and DevOps team doesn’t need to be storage or data protection experts in order to protect Kubernetes clusters and cloud applications.
