Catalogic Software has announced that it has sold its copy data management business to IBM for an undisclosed sum. Headquartered in New Jersey, Catalogic Software has been looking to divest the copy data management business to focus on its enterprise and cloud data protection and data security solutions, including CloudCasa.
Catalogic’s in-place copy data management solution uses the power of storage array snapshot and replication to modernize IT processes such as automated DevTest, data protection with instant recovery, disaster recovery and offload to cloud storage. The in-place snapshot based approach made ECX a great solution for partnering with enterprise storage vendors such as IBM.
“IBM Storage has been an important business partner for Catalogic,” said Ken Barth, chief executive officer for Catalogic Software. “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.”
In November 2020, Catalogic Software launched its Kubernetes and cloud native data protection service CloudCasa, which offers cloud data protection, backup and disaster recovery as a service for Kubernetes applications and cloud data services.
