This week we are announcing Catalogic DPX 4.7 general availability, this release is full of exciting new DPX enhancements with the key new features being:

  • Hyper-V Backup and Recovery
  • Continued improvements to new HTML UI – With VMware Backup and Recovery now accessible in the new UI
  • Archive to Cloud for Block Level backups on vStor

Hyper-V Backup in the new UI

DPX now introduces a reliable native Hyper-V backup, offering backup and restore features to help you meet your recovery objectives. To maximize the success of your Hyper-V backups, Catalogic DPX offers key capabilities to ensure that your backups and restores are successfully completed the first time:

Fast backup and restore
Increase the speed and reduce the Hyper-V backup footprint by protecting only what has changed since the last backup.

 

Point in time restore
DPX Hyper-V full VM restore allows you to restore a VM from any point in time that it was backed up. The VM will be restored in the same state as it was during the backup and will appear on the Hyper-V host you selected for restore.

 

Hyper-V cluster support
If you have a Hyper-V cluster with multiple Hyper-V hosts, Catalogic DPX is able to properly back up all Guest VMs within your cluster, so that you don’t need to purchase the pricey Datacenter license of Microsoft System Center for Hyper-V cluster backup purpose.

 

Retention / versioning
Catalogic DPX allows you to set flexible retention policies, including daily, weekly, monthly, yearly policies to suit your IT audit and compliance needs.

 

Application-consistent backups
Provides application-aware processing, all in a single-pass, applications consistent snapshot backup of VSS-aware applications. This is the level of protection that you need to gain the flexible recovery your application needs.

VMware Backup in new UI

With DPX 4.7 we have started moving key user functionality to the new HTML5 User Interface beginning with VMware Agentless backup. The experience of creating VMware Agentless backup and recovery jobs has been redesigned to be a simpler more intuitive process. The new UI allows for creating backup and recovery jobs including setting retention time, schedule, and job options. The status of run jobs is also available in the new job monitor.

Archive to Cloud for Block Backups
Cloud archive from vStor now supports Block Backup as well as Agentless VMware backup.
The new Block archive from vStor supports incremental and differential transfers thereby eliminating the need to send the full data set to tape, disk directory or cloud every time.

 

vStor at rest volume encryption support
vStor Volume Encryption is based on ZFS technology for encrypting data at rest on a volume in vStor Server, ensuring that if the underlying device is repurposed, returned, misplaced, or stolen the data cannot be accessed without the encryption key.

 

vStor configuration backup and restore
vStor volume and pool configuration is backed up daily in a special configuration volume that can be replicated or archived further. In an event of a loss of the virtual appliance or a replacement of physical hardware, vStor configuration can be restored. Backup retention can be configured and be default lasts 14 days.

 

vStor performance improvements
UI is more responsive and snapshot creation is considerably quicker. Data deduplication can be enabled for a wider variety of data without significant performance degradation:

  • Pools with degraded performance can be treated with the deduplication table cleaning procedure
  • Ongoing deduplication table cleaning is enabled for all new pools with deduplication
  • System startup performance is improved by deduplication table preloading

 

Additional Features in this Release

  • Improved reporting in the new Management Interface
  • Adds multi-language support in the new Management Interface
  • CHAP authentication support for NetApp CDOT
  • Backup and recovery of vStor configuration in case of migration or disaster.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – November 11, 2020  Catalogic Software, a leading provider of smart data protection and copy data management solutions, today announced the launch of its new SaaS platform – CloudCasa – to deliver data protection and disaster recovery for Kubernetes and Red Hat® OpenShift® Clusters. CloudCasa is a simple, scalable, cloud-native platform built using Kubernetes for protecting Kubernetes. CloudCasa is platform and location agnostic, and will protect cloud native applications across Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Red Hat OpenShift, and VMware Tanzu.

 

“Kubernetes has been the driver of the single largest shift in the data protection ecosystem in recent years. Kubernetes management is dominated by developers and DevOps engineers who have seldom had to deal with data protection solutions,” said Sathya Sankaran, COO of Catalogic Software. “At KubeCon, we will be launching CloudCasa, our subscription Backup as a Service offering that is built with simplicity for developers in mind. CloudCasa removes the complexity of managing a backup solution so that customers can effortlessly protect their critical Kubernetes infrastructure. CloudCasa is truly disruptive and allows unlimited CSI snapshots as well as backup of cluster metadata and container resources to our managed storage for free.”

 

“Containers may seem like the latest buzzword, but they are here, and real, and IT operations needs the full set of tools to support the enterprise execution,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director, Evaluator Group. “CloudCasa from Catalogic Software is bringing a focused approach to supporting the need for protection and snapshots in the Public Cloud, with an eye on the longer-term maturity that is needed for the enterprise.”

 

CloudCasa – A Smart Home in the Cloud for Backups

 

Unlike solutions that retrofit existing appliance solutions, CloudCasa is a reimagination of backups leveraging Catalogic’s proven expertise in snapshot and copy data management across multiple storage vendors. CloudCasa exploits the strengths of public cloud infrastructure and Kubernetes:

 

  • Cloud Native: Built in the cloud to leverage the elasticity and scale of the cloud.
  • Cloud Scale: Horizontal auto-scaling with unlimited cloud storage at the user’s disposal.
  • Cloud Secure: Always encrypted, both in transit and at rest.
  • Cloud Smart: Learns from its users to deliver insights and service optimization
  • Cloud Mobile: Backup from and restore to both on-premises and cloud-deployed clusters. CloudCasa supports all major flavors of Kubernetes.
  • Cloud Service: Low touch and zero Infrastructure demand on the user.

 

“The launch of CloudCasa is a game changer for Catalogic, its customers, and those in need of data protection and disaster recovery for Kubernetes,” said Ken Barth, CEO of Catalogic Software. “We’ve taken a look at market need, the steady adoption of the deployment of Kubernetes for cloud native applications and spearheaded the development of a SaaS solution that takes all the complexity out of data protection for Kubernetes. It’s truly a subscribe and use solution, so elegant, and an answer to a pain point in the burgeoning Kubernetes market. Kudos to the team for developing and delivering CloudCasa.”

 

CloudCasa will be launched as a public beta at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020, where Catalogic is a silver sponsor of the event. CloudCasa will be generally available through public cloud marketplaces and marketplaces of popular distributions such as RedHat OpenShift, SUSE Rancher and VMware Tanzu. The free offering has no limits as to the number of clusters or worker nodes per user or organization. Backup retention will be a maximum of 30 days with more premium offerings coming in the future.
