Oracle, EMC Unity Storage, Amazon S3 and More! Catalogic ECX 2.4 Delivers.
At the same time, we’ve made major changes to our web site, including adding a host of new solutions pages where you can get a lot of great details about what we do.
Since there’s so much to cover, for now I’m going to just point to different places where you can find out information. Over the next few weeks we’ll be digging deeper into a lot of these new features, so keep watching this space!
For starters, you can get the overview from the press release, along with some nice quotes from Dave Floyer at Wikibon and Trevor Pott of eGeek and The Register.
Then there are some of the big ticket items.
- Deep integration with Oracle databases. This hits one of the biggest challenges in copy data management: dealing with relentless growth and sprawl of databases.
- New support for the EMC Unity storage family. As we continue to expand our supported storage platforms, the Unity All Flash and Hybrid Flash arrays are a great new addition. In fact, we’re the first vendor to support copy data management on EMC Unity! CDM is really the killer app for all-flash systems, which can drive multiple workloads of a single snapshot thanks to all the I/O bandwidth.
- As part of our overall Hybrid Cloud strategy, we’ve added support for Amazon S3. S3 is a very logical final resting place for data – think long-term or archive storage. Now as part of your copy data workflows, you can move data sets into S3. And since Catalogic catalogs things, you’ll know it’s there.
There are a lot of other things in the release, including many operational and administrative enhancements, and we’ve put them all into our What’s New document so you can have it all in one place.
